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. Relatively untried employees who have fewer than five years of experience earn around $70K on average. People who have worked for five to 10 years can expect a higher median salary of $76K. The average pay reported by folks with 10 to 20 years of experience is around $81K. Survey participants who have spent more than 20 years on the job report a predictably higher median income of $88K, demonstrating that compensation is roughly commensurate with experience in the end.
