Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For many Catering Directors, extensive experience does not lead to significantly more money. Survey participants with less than five years' experience pocket $42K on average, but those with five to 10 years of experience enjoy a much bigger median of $49K. On average, Catering Directors make $55K following one to two decades on the job. Folks who have racked up more than 20 years in the field report incomes that aren't that much higher than less experienced individuals' earnings; the veterans make just $56K on average.
