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. Salaries for inexperienced workers average out to $60K, and those with five to 10 years' experience earn a higher median of $43K. The average pay reported by folks with 10 to 20 years of experience is around $64K. More than 20 years of experience seem related to solid financial gains; veterans in this group report earning a median of $95K.
