Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Experience and pay tend to be weakly linked for Payroll & Benefits Administrative Assistants with Office Administration skills — those with more experience do not necessarily bring in higher earnings. Survey participants with less than five years' experience pocket $32K on average, but those with five to 10 years of experience enjoy a much bigger median of $37K. For Payroll & Benefits Administrative Assistants with Office Administration skills, 10 to 20 years of experience on the job amounts to an average salary of $40K. Individuals who report more than two decades of experience seem to make only slightly more than folks in the 10-to-20 year range; the more senior group sees median earnings in the comparatively modest ballpark of $41K.
