Insider Tips

In the United States, receptionists usually earn around $12.00 per hour. Wages increase steadily for the first five to 10 years before levelling off. Receptionists in San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and New York City make salaries well above the United States average. While receptionists can work with only a high school diploma, the best paid receptionists usually have a certificate in administrative/clerical studies or a bachelor's degree in communications or business.
