Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Quality Control Inspectors generally obtain higher salaries for more plentiful past experience. After five to 10 years, pay—which begins at $31K—can reach $37K. Compensation is $42K after 10 to 20 years. The 20-year mark seems to bring slower salary growth, and Quality Control Inspectors at this tenure level tend to see their incomes plateau to $49K. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up 18 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 13 percent. Between one and nine years is the typical spectrum of experience for those in this line of work—of those who took the survey, a majority land within this radius.
