Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Eligibility Workers with a lot of experience do not necessarily enjoy more money. Relatively untried employees who have less than five years' experience have a median salary of $32K. Those who have been around for five to 10 years can expect to take home more — $36K on average. The average pay reported by folks with 10 to 20 years of experience is around $42K. 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 $44K.
