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 incomes. Relatively untried employees who have fewer than five years of experience earn around $53K on average. People who have worked for five to 10 years can expect a higher median salary of $68K. Houston Operations Managers who work for 10 to 20 years in their occupation tend to earn about $94K. Individuals who have achieved more than 20 years of experience don't seem to earn much more than people who have 10 to 20 years under their belts; the more senior group reports an average income of $103K.
