Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Experience and income seem to be closely related; in general, the survey respondents who had worked for more years reported higher incomes. Those in the early stages of their career can expect to make around $52K; however, individuals with five to 10 years of experience bring in $73K on average — a distinctly larger sum. For Nuclear Technicians, 10 to 20 years of experience on the job amounts to an average salary of $75K. Big financial gains seem to result from working for more than two decades; veterans in this group report earning $87K on average.
