Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
In general, experience and pay appear to be strongly linked; those with more experience usually bring in higher incomes. Although individuals who have less than five years' experience earn $38K on average, people with five to 10 years benefit from a notably larger average of $52K. People with 10 to 20 years of experience make an average of about $63K in this role. Big financial gains seem to result from working for more than two decades; veterans in this group report earning $87K on average.
