Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Commercial Divers generally obtain higher compensation for more plentiful past experience. People who have worked for fewer than five years bring home $49K on average. Median compensation in the five-to-10 year group, however, is higher at approximately $61K. After working for 10 to 20 years, Commercial Divers make a median salary of $85K. Individuals who have achieved more than 20 years of experience don't seem to earn much more than people who have 10 to 20 years under their belts; the more senior group reports an average income of $102K.
