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. Workers with less than five years' experience earn around $53K on average, and those who have five to 10 years under their belts see a higher median salary of $62K. After working for 10 to 20 years, Public Works Directors make a median salary of $76K. 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 $81K.
