For Administrative Assistants in Atlanta, Ga., level of experience appears to be a somewhat less important part of the salary calculation — more experience does not correlate to noticeably higher pay.

On average, Atlanta Administrative Assistants make $37K following one to two decades on the job. More than 20 years of experience mean a somewhat bigger median paycheck of $41K, but it's not much more than what less experienced people make.
