Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Fire Inspectors do not generally earn higher incomes from more experience in the field. The average beginner in this position makes around $40K, but folks who have been around for five to 10 years see a markedly higher median salary of $49K. Fire Inspectors who work for 10 to 20 years in their occupation tend to earn about $53K. Folks who have racked up more than 20 years in the field report incomes that aren't that much higher than less experienced individuals' earnings; the veterans make just $55K on average.
