Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For Emergency Dispatchers, experience is not a major factor in determining pay, and incremental pay growth is standard. Though starting salaries approximate $30K, they climb to $35K after five to 10 years. After spending one to two decades on the job, pay usually hovers around $38K. After 20 years of work in the field, Emergency Dispatchers typically earn $41K and go on to enjoy (slight) increases in earnings. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up 20 percent of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise less than 10, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining 6 percent. Age distribution in this workforce is concentrated between one and nine years of experience; more than half of respondents fall in this range.
