Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For Orthopedic Cast Technicians, more experience in the field does not usually mean bigger paychecks. Respondents with less than five years' experience take home $30K on average. In contrast, those who have been around for five to 10 years earn a noticeably higher average of $36K. Orthopedic Cast Technicians claiming one to two decades of experience make an estimated median of $43K. Folks who have racked up more than 20 years in the field report incomes that aren't that much higher than less experienced individuals' earnings; the veterans make just $45K on average.
