Pay by Experience Level for Administrative Assistant in Atlanta, Georgia

Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Experience and pay tend to be weakly linked for Atlanta Administrative Assistants — those with more experience do not necessarily bring in higher earnings. The average inexperienced worker's salary is approximately $31K, and people with five to 10 years of experience bring in more at around $34K on average. On average, Administrative Assistants in Atlanta, Ga. make $38K following one to two decades on the job. Individuals who have achieved more than 20 years of experience don't seem to earn much more than people who have 10 to 20 years under their belts; the more senior group reports an average income of $41K. Between one and nine years is the typical spectrum of experience for those in this line of work — of those who took the survey, more than half land within it. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up approximately one-fourth of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise fewer than one in twenty, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining slightly less than a fifth.
