Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Experience and income seem to be closely related; in general, the survey respondents who had worked for more years reported higher incomes. Those who have worked for fewer than five years take home a median salary of $30K, and workers with five to 10 years of experience earn a higher $32K on average. The average pay reported by folks with 10 to 20 years of experience is around $35K. Seasoned veterans with 20 years under their belts enjoy a median income of $46K.
