Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For many Control Room Operators, 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 $43K; in the five-to-10 year group, it's higher at around $54K. Control Room Operators see a median salary of $69K after reaching one to two decades on the job. Individuals who report more than two decades of experience seem to make only slightly more than folks in the 10-to-20 year range; the more senior group sees median earnings in the comparatively modest ballpark of $76K.
