Pay by Experience Level for General Duty/ Housekeeper

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


Experience and pay tend to be weakly linked for General Duty Housekeepers — those with more experience do not necessarily bring in higher earnings. In this position, someone who has worked for fewer than five years can expect a median salary of $20K. The median for people with five to 10 years of experience is only a little bit higher at $21K. General Duty Housekeepers bring in $24K after working for 10 to 20 years.
