Pay by Experience Level for Engineering Technician

Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.


For Engineering Technicians with Systems Troubleshooting 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.

Engineering Technicians with Systems Troubleshooting skills who work for 10 to 20 years in their occupation tend to earn about $60K.
