Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
In general, experience and pay appear to be strongly linked; those with more experience usually bring in higher incomes. Relatively untried employees who have less than five years' experience make $69K, but folks with five to 10 years under their belts enjoy an appreciably larger median of $88K. Washington Construction Project Managers see a median salary of $89K after reaching one to two decades on the job. Veterans who boast more than two decades of experience make around $103K on average — an ample six-figure paycheck.
