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 salaries. Standard salaries begin at $42K and can reach $50K after five to 10 years. Pay amounts to $57K after 10 to 20 years. Even after two decades, Wildlife Biologists continue to experience substantial salary development and pay is estimated at $100K. Experienced employees who have 10-20 years of experience make up around one third of the workforce; inexperienced individuals who have been working for less than one year comprise less than five percent, and senior people with more than 20 years under their belt fill out the remaining less than 10 percent. Age distribution in this workforce is concentrated between one and nine years of experience; more than half of respondents fall in this range.
