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

On average, Human Resources Specialists with 401k Plan Administration skills make $49K following one to two decades on the job. More than 20 years of experience mean a somewhat bigger median paycheck of $50K, but it's not much more than what less experienced people make.
