For Administrative Assistants in Dallas, Texas, level of experience is overall a somewhat less important part of the salary calculation—more experience does not yield dramatically higher pay—and pay raises are largely incremental. Those in the early stages of their career can expect to make around $33K; however, pay rises to approximately $36K after five to 10 years. Those who spend a decent amount of time in this profession—one to two decades—usually make about $38K. After 20 years of work in the field, Administrative Assistants in Dallas typically earn $41K and go on to enjoy (slight) increases in earnings. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up 25 percent of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise less than five, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining 14 percent. More than half of the workforce has between one and nine years of experience.
