Pay by Experience Level for Psychometrist

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


For Psychometrists, level of experience appears to be a somewhat less important part of the salary calculation — more experience does not correlate to noticeably higher pay. Folks with fewer than five years of experience take home $36K on average, and those who have worked for five to 10 years see a bigger median salary of $42K. The average pay reported by folks with 10 to 20 years of experience is around $51K. Individuals who report more than two decades of experience seem to make only slightly more than folks in the 10-to-20 year range; the more senior group sees median earnings in the comparatively modest ballpark of $52K.
