Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For many Authorization Specialists, experience and pay seem to be weakly connected; experience does not necessarily lead to more money. Pay increases are minimal for Authorization Specialists just starting out. Salaries only go from $30K to $30K after a decade. After 10 to 20 years, compensation comes in at $36K. After spending 20 years in the field, salary continues to increase (though at a slower pace) for Authorization Specialists and pay is expected at $40K. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up 18 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 5 percent. One to nine years of experience is standard for most employees in this area; most of respondents fit between this range.
