Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Stationary Engineer or Boiler Operators with more experience do not necessarily bring home bigger paychecks. In fact, experience in this field tends to impact compensation minimally. Workers with less than five years' experience earn around $46K on average, and those who have five to 10 years under their belts see a higher median salary of $49K. For Stationary Engineer or Boiler Operators, 10 to 20 years of experience on the job amounts to an average salary of $57K. Folks who have racked up more than 20 years in the field report incomes that aren't that much higher than less experienced individuals' earnings; the veterans make just $59K on average.
