Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Experience and pay tend to be weakly linked for Industrial Tool Designers — those with more experience do not necessarily bring in higher earnings. During the first five years of their careers, Industrial Tool Designers see a median income of $51K. Survey respondents with five to 10 years of experience report an only modestly higher median of $52K. Industrial Tool Designers claiming one to two decades of experience make an estimated median of $59K. Survey participants who have spent more than 20 years on the job report a predictably higher median income of $62K, demonstrating that compensation is roughly commensurate with experience in the end.
