Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For Houston Administrative Assistants, experience is not a major factor in determining pay, and incremental pay growth is standard. Workers new to the field can expect to earn $31K, increasing to $36K after five to 10 years. After 10 to 20 years, compensation comes in at $39K. Salaries grow more slowly as Houston Administrative Assistants approach the 20-year mark, when the pay stabilizes at $42K. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up 23 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 17 percent. Age distribution in this workforce is concentrated between one and nine years of experience; more than half of respondents fall in this range.
