Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For Firemans, more experience in the field does not usually mean bigger paychecks. Folks who are navigating the first five years of their careers have a median salary of approximately $40K in this position. Those who have been around for five to 10 years don't get much more, though; the median salary in that group is $41K. The average pay reported by folks with 10 to 20 years of experience is around $51K. Old hands boasting more than twenty years of relevant experience report pay that is more or less commensurate with that extensive experience; average earnings for this group come out to approximately $56K.
