Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For Automation Technicians with Engineering Design skills, level of experience appears to be a somewhat less important part of the salary calculation — more experience does not correlate to noticeably higher pay. The average worker who claims fewer than five years of experience earns around $52K. In contrast, however, individuals who report five to 10 years in this occupation see a much larger median of $58K. On average, Automation Technicians with Engineering Design skills make $65K following one to two decades on the job. People who have worked for more than 20 years report a median income of $71K, which is barely higher than the median for folks with 10 to 20 years of experience.
