Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For many Administrative Assistants in Atlanta, Ga., experience and pay seem to be weakly connected; experience does not necessarily lead to more money. After five to 10 years, pay—which begins at $31K—can reach $34K. Those who spend a decent amount of time in this profession—one to two decades—usually make about $38K. Salaries tend to grow less rapidly after achieving 20 years of experience, with more senior Administrative Assistants in Atlanta earning an average of $41K per year. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up 26 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 18 percent. More than half of the workforce has between one and nine years of experience.
