Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.


For Meat Managers, level of experience appears to be a somewhat less important part of the salary calculation — more experience does not correlate to noticeably higher pay.

For Meat Managers, 10 to 20 years of experience on the job amounts to an average salary of $45K.
