Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For many Commercial Divers, experience and pay levels seem to be correlated; more years in the business generally lead to more money. The median compensation for relatively untried workers is $52K; in the five-to-10 year group, it's higher at around $63K. Commercial Divers with one to two decades of relevant experience report an average salary of approximately $87K. Commercial Divers who surpass 20 years on the job report pay that isn't as high as one would expect; the median compensation for this crowd sits around $102K.
