Pay by Experience Level for Personnel Specialist

Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.


For Personnel Specialists, level of experience appears to be a somewhat less important part of the salary calculation — more experience does not correlate to noticeably higher pay. Relatively untried employees who have less than five years' experience make $35K, but folks with five to 10 years under their belts enjoy an appreciably larger median of $45K. People with 10 to 20 years of experience make an average of about $48K in this role. People who have worked for more than 20 years report a median income of $50K, which is barely higher than the median for folks with 10 to 20 years of experience.
