Pay by Experience Level for Construction Materials Tester

Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.


Experience and pay tend to be weakly linked for Construction Materials Testers — those with more experience do not necessarily bring in higher earnings. Those who have worked for fewer than five years take home a median salary of $31K, and workers with five to 10 years of experience earn a higher $35K on average. Construction Materials Testers claiming one to two decades of experience make an estimated median of $41K. More than 20 years of experience mean a somewhat bigger median paycheck of $45K, but it's not much more than what less experienced people make.
