Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Respondents with less than five years' experience take home $30K on average. In contrast, those who have been around for five to 10 years earn a noticeably higher average of $35K. Optical Lab Manufacturing Technicians with one to two decades of relevant experience report an average salary of approximately $39K. Survey participants with more than twenty years of experience only make around $38K on average, though; this group reports a lower median than the one claimed by mid-career individuals.
