Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
At career start, salaries are typically $39K, which grows to $46K after five to 10 years. After 10 to 20 years, compensation comes in at $51K. Financial Specialists' pay declines to $48K, on average, after racking up two decades of experience. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up 19 percent of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise less than five, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining 11 percent. In this field, workers tend to have anywhere from one to nine years of experience—of those surveyed, more than half land within this range.
