Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Juvenile Probation Officers with a lot of experience tend to enjoy higher salaries. Pay increases are minimal for Juvenile Probation Officers just starting out. Salaries only go from $34K to $37K after a decade. Those who spend a decent amount of time in this profession—one to two decades—usually make about $42K. Paychecks show no signs of slowing down as Juvenile Probation Officers approach two decades on the job—pay continues to accelerate and typical earnings come to $53K. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up 14 percent of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise 15 percent, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining less than 10. A majority of respondents report one to nine years of experience.
