Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
For many Truck Mechanics, extensive experience does not lead to significantly more money. At career start (within the first five years), average income sits near $34K, and the average for folks who have worked for five to 10 years is only slightly higher at $37K. On average, Truck Mechanics make $44K following one to two decades on the job. As Truck Mechanics reach more than two decades on the job, compensation remains commensurate with experience; the average pay in this group is $48K.
