Pay by Experience Level for Public Works Foreman

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


For many Public Works Foremans, extensive experience does not lead to significantly more money. Relatively untried employees who have less than five years' experience have a median salary of $40K. Those who have been around for five to 10 years can expect to take home more — $43K on average. On average, Public Works Foremans make $48K following one to two decades on the job. 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 $49K.
