Pay by Experience Level for Mayor

Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For Mayors, experience seems to be a major factor in determining pay. Salary growth can be slow for Mayors who are just starting out. During their first decade on the job, pay typically only increases from $50K to $60K. After 10 to 20 years, salary hovers around $77K. Six-figure salaries surface only after two decades on the job—these experienced workers bring in an estimated $77K. 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 11 percent, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining 18 percent. One to nine years of experience is standard for most employees in this area; more than half of respondents fit between this range.
