Pay by Experience Level for Hospital Unit Clerk

Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For many Hospital Unit Clerks, extensive experience does not lead to significantly more money. Workers in their first five years can expect to earn $28K, but people who have been around for five to 10 years earn a noticeably bigger sum of $31K. People with 10 to 20 years of experience make an average of about $32K in this role. More than 20 years of experience mean a somewhat bigger median paycheck of $32K, but it's not much more than what less experienced people make. Between one and nine years of experience is the norm for people in this field — more than half of those surveyed fit this bill. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up slightly more than a fifth of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise less than 10 percent, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining nearly one in seven.
