Pay by Experience Level for Administrative Assistant in Seattle, Washington

Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Experience and pay tend to be weakly linked for Administrative Assistants in Seattle — those with more experience do not necessarily bring in higher earnings. The average inexperienced worker earns $34K, and someone who has worked for five to 10 years can expect a bigger median salary of $37K. People with 10 to 20 years of experience make an average of about $41K in this role. Individuals who report more than two decades of experience seem to make only slightly more than folks in the 10-to-20 year range; the more senior group sees median earnings in the comparatively modest ballpark of $44K. A majority of respondents report having between one and nine years of experience in this field. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up nearly one-sixth of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise fewer than one in ten, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining less than one-tenth.
