In general, experience and pay appear to be strongly linked; those with more experience usually bring in higher incomes. During the first five years of their careers, Foresters see a median income of $39K. Survey respondents with five to 10 years of experience report an only modestly higher median of $43K. For Foresters, 10 to 20 years of experience on the job amounts to an average salary of $52K. Big financial gains seem to result from working for more than two decades; veterans in this group report earning $67K on average.
