Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
In general, experience and pay appear to be strongly linked; those with more experience usually bring in higher incomes. The median compensation for relatively untried workers is $41K; in the five-to-10 year group, it's higher at around $49K. People with 10 to 20 years of experience make an average of about $50K in this role. More than 20 years of experience seem related to solid financial gains; veterans in this group report earning a median of $62K.
