Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
In general, experience and pay appear to be strongly linked; those with more experience usually bring in higher incomes. Relatively untried employees who have less than five years' experience make $44K, but folks with five to 10 years under their belts enjoy an appreciably larger median of $62K. Linemans see a median salary of $66K after reaching one to two decades on the job. Average wages for folks with more than 20 years of experience come out to around $72K.
