Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Atlanta Administrative Assistants do not generally earn higher salaries from more experience in the field—in most many but not all cases, experience is not a driving force behind pay increase. At career start, salaries are typically $31K, which grow to $34K after five to 10 years. Those who spend a decent amount of time in this profession—one to two decades—usually make about $38K. The 20-year mark seems to bring slower salary growth, and Administrative Assistants in Atlanta, Ga. at this tenure level tend to see their incomes plateau to $41K. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up about one-fourth of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise less than five percent, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining 18 percent. More than half of respondents report having between one and nine years of experience in this field.
