Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
In general, experience and pay appear to be strongly linked; those with more experience usually bring in higher salaries. Those in the early stages of their career can expect to make around $37K; however, pay rises to approximately $49K after five to 10 years. Those with one to two decades of experience under their belt tend to see salaries around $55K. Salaries grow more slowly as Flight Dispatchers approach the 20-year mark, when the pay stabilizes at $60K. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up 27 percent of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise less than five percent, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining 10 percent. More than half of respondents report one to nine years of experience.
