Insider Tips

The typical average pay for industrial mechanics is $20.75 per hour. Industrial mechanics can land entry-level positions with just a high school diploma. To move up to higher paying positions, however, they generally need to earn an associate's degree or complete post-secondary courses in computer programming, blueprint reading, or mechanical drawing. Industrial mechanics who work in the manufacturing or wholesale trade industries typically have salaries at the high end of the spectrum for this field.
