Pay by Experience Level for Freight Conductor

Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.


Those in the early stages of their career can expect to make around $44K; however, individuals with five to 10 years of experience bring in $70K on average — a distinctly larger sum. Freight Conductors with one to two decades of relevant experience report an average salary of approximately $72K. Respondents who boast more than 20 years of experience can't seem to boast paychecks reflecting that extensive experience, though; veteran Freight Conductors report making only $43K on average.
