Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For many Correctional Counselors, more experience generally translates to higher pay. Someone who has worked for fewer than five years earns around $31K on average. Individuals with five to 10 years of experience don't get much more, though; the average income in this group is $34K. Correctional Counselors see a median salary of $44K after reaching one to two decades on the job. Old hands who claim more than two decades on the job enjoy average earnings of $63K.
