Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For many Backhoe Operators, more experience generally translates to higher pay. Someone who has worked for fewer than five years earns around $32K on average. Individuals with five to 10 years of experience don't get much more, though; the average income in this group is $32K. Backhoe Operators see a median salary of $36K after reaching one to two decades on the job. Seasoned workers who boast more than two decades of relevant experience enjoy a median salary of $52K, which is substantially larger than the medians reported by folks with fewer years on their resumes.
