Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For many Cardiovascular Technologists, experience and pay seem to be weakly connected; experience does not necessarily lead to more money. Though starting salaries approximate $50K, they climb to $58K after five to 10 years. After spending one to two decades on the job, pay usually hovers around $66K. Cardiovascular Technologists who stay in the field for several decades see their salaries grow less quickly after 20 years, with incomes eventually hovering around $69,907. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up 17 percent of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise 7 percent, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining 13 percent. A majority of respondents report one to nine years of experience.
