Receptionists can make anywhere from $9 to $27 hourly; it varies heavily depending on the type of company the receptionist works at. This adds up to $18,000 to about $42,000 annually.
Most businesses require their receptionists to have a high school diploma; only very certain companies will require any level of higher education. Many companies will also require prior experience working in a receptionist position.
