Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For Seattle Administrative Assistants, level of experience appears to be a somewhat less important part of the salary calculation — more experience does not correlate to noticeably higher pay. In this position, someone who has worked for fewer than five years can expect a median salary of $34K. The median for people with five to 10 years of experience is only a little bit higher at $36K. Administrative Assistants in Seattle with one to two decades of relevant experience report an average salary of approximately $41K. Ultimately, more time spent in the workforce does seem to translate to bigger paychecks; seasoned veterans with more than 20 years of experience report a median income of $45K.
