Pay by Experience Level for Maid

Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
More years of relevant experience do not necessarily translate to higher paychecks. Survey participants with less than five years' experience report a median income of $21K, and earnings aren't much higher for respondents who have five to ten years under their belts; respondents in the latter group report a median of just $22K. Maids bring in $24K after working for 10 to 20 years. Ultimately, more time spent in the workforce does seem to translate to bigger paychecks; seasoned veterans with more than 20 years of experience report a median income of $30K. In this field, workers tend to have anywhere from one to nine years of experience — of those surveyed, a majority land within this range. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up just under one-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 roughly an eighth.
