Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Experience and pay tend to be weakly linked for Survey Technicians with Computer Aided Drafting & Design (CADD) skills — those with more experience do not necessarily bring in higher earnings. The average worker who claims fewer than five years of experience earns around $41K. In contrast, however, individuals who report five to 10 years in this occupation see a much larger median of $51K. For Survey Technicians with Computer Aided Drafting & Design (CADD) skills, 10 to 20 years of experience on the job amounts to an average salary of $52K. Individuals who report more than two decades of experience seem to make about the same as folks in the 10-to-20 year range.
