Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Experience and income seem to be closely related; in general, the survey respondents who had worked for more years reported higher incomes. Those in the early stages of their career can expect to make around $36K; however, individuals with five to 10 years of experience bring in $50K on average — a distinctly larger sum. After working for 10 to 20 years, Postmasters make a median salary of $62K. Postmasters who have stuck around for more than two decades see earnings that are only slightly higher than those of folks who have worked for 10 to 20 years; the more senior group makes around $71K on average.
