Pay by Experience Level for Mover

Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For many Movers, experience and pay seem to be weakly connected; experience does not necessarily lead to more money. Starting out, salaries fall in the $25K range but grow to $29K after five to 10 years. Pay amounts to $31K after 10 to 20 years. Salary increase slows as Movers pass 20 years in their field, with average salaries hovering around $31K. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up 18 percent of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise 7 percent, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining less than five. One to nine years of experience is standard for most employees in this area; most of respondents fit between this range.
