Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Experience and income seem to be closely related; in general, the survey respondents who had worked for more years reported higher incomes. Someone who has worked for fewer than five years earns around $26K on average. Individuals with five to 10 years of experience don't get much more, though; the average income in this group is $27K. The average pay reported by folks with 10 to 20 years of experience is around $30K. Seasoned workers who boast more than two decades of relevant experience enjoy a median salary of $47K, which is substantially larger than the medians reported by folks with fewer years on their resumes.
