Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For Payroll & Benefits Administrative Assistants with Office Administration skills, level of experience appears to be a somewhat less important part of the salary calculation — more experience does not correlate to noticeably higher pay. Salaries for the relatively untried average out to around $29K, but survey participants with five to 10 years of experience earn a significantly higher median of $39K. The average pay reported by folks with 10 to 20 years of experience is around $40K. Payroll & Benefits Administrative Assistants with Office Administration skills who have stuck around for more than two decades see earnings that are no higher than those of folks who have worked for 10 to 20 years.
