Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
People who have worked for fewer than five years bring home $34K on average. Median compensation in the five-to-10 year group, however, is higher at approximately $38K. Cable Construction Technicians who work for 10 to 20 years in their occupation tend to earn about $49K. People who have worked for 20 years or more actually report earning less than people who are in the middle of their careers; the veterans take home a mere $44K by contrast.
