Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Assignment Editors do not generally earn higher incomes from more experience in the field. Relatively untried employees who have less than five years' experience have a median salary of $40K. Those who have been around for five to 10 years can expect to take home more — $44K on average. On average, Assignment Editors make $46K following one to two decades on the job. As Assignment Editors reach more than two decades on the job, compensation remains commensurate with experience; the average pay in this group is $60K.
