Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Produce Buyers with more experience do not necessarily bring home bigger paychecks. In fact, experience in this field tends to impact compensation minimally. Salaries for the relatively untried average out to around $45K, but survey participants with five to 10 years of experience earn a significantly higher median of $55K. Produce Buyers claiming one to two decades of experience make an estimated median of $57K. Survey participants who have spent more than 20 years on the job report a predictably higher median income of $60K, demonstrating that compensation is roughly commensurate with experience in the end.
