Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
In general, experience and pay appear to be strongly linked; those with more experience usually bring in higher salaries. After five to 10 years, the typical starting salary of $39K climbs to $44K. Between 10 and 20 years, pay reaches $49,713. Pay continues to grow for Building Code Inspectors after two decades on the job, and average earnings come to $59K. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up around one third of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise 1 percent, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining 17 percent. Workers in this area tend to have one to nine years of experience.
