Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Experience does not seem to be a strong driver of pay increase in this role. Workers with less than five years' experience earn around $65K on average, and those who have five to 10 years under their belts see a higher median salary of $71K. Nuclear Technicians who work for 10 to 20 years in their occupation tend to earn about $72K. Ultimately, more time spent in the workforce does seem to translate to bigger paychecks; seasoned veterans with more than 20 years of experience report a median income of $85K.
