Pay by Experience Level for Sous Chef in Boston, Massachusetts

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

After working for 10 to 20 years, Boston Sous Chefs make a median salary of $46K. 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.
