Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For Farm Products Buyers, level of experience is overall a somewhat less important part of the salary calculation—more experience does not yield dramatically higher pay—and pay raises are largely incremental. Salary growth is weak for Farm Products Buyers during their first decade in the field; typical pay starts at $39K and turns to only $42K after five to 10 years. Those with one to two decades of experience under their belt tend to see salaries around $46K. Farm Products Buyers experience only minor salary growth after working for two decades, bringing in around $55K. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up 20 percent of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise less than five, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining 10 percent. More than half of the workforce has between one and nine years of experience.
