Land Survey Rodman (entry level) (Tampa)


compensation: Hourly
employment type: full-time

Immediate need for a couple people that can get it.

If you do not know about hiking in the swamp, army crawling through water lettuce, and combating mosquitoes as big as your face; this probably is not the job for you. White sunglass wearing, clean sneaker, urban cowboys need not apply. We are looking for people that can handle the full effect of global warming in summertime Florida. You need to be able to climb fences and swim. If either of these activities require a ladder, gate, swimmies, or a lifejacket this is not the job for you. This is a physical and demanding position some days and just because you can leg press twice your body weight at LA Fitness does not mean you are a good fit for the spot. If you cannot go several hours without posting selfies (and I don’t care who you are you still look like an idiot) and updating your Facebook status this isn’t the job for you. Finally, if you cannot handle good natured humor and expect to come in at the end of the day to sit down with me to fill out a hurt feelings report, you are definitely cruising the wrong posting. Most of all you need common sense. There seems to be a shortage of this going around these days and we are not looking for the dullest tools in the shed.

About us, we are a good-sized survey firm that nails out projects all across Florida. We come with great benefits and a have a well-established survey department. We do consistent 40+ hour work weeks and the opportunity for 50 – 60 hours is there. We do pay for college tuition/books and there is a serious need for licensed surveyors coming as a most of our profession retires in the next five to ten years. We have a great core group of employees and are looking for a couple no nonsense motivated people to grow with. This is an entry level position that starts at $12.00 / hr. We can reevaluate after 90 days but you have to be able to back it up. We are not looking for a career rodman with 15 years’ experience that just could not make it somewhere else. We will train and provide you all of the knowledge to be successful on the job. There is definite upward mobility in pay and advancement, you just have to take advantage of it. Just leave your baggage and drama in the parking lot, ain’t nobody got time for that.

Please note, you will have to pass a drug test, have a decent driving record, and possess a high school diploma or equivalent. There will also be out of town work. We handle all the details so it’s almost like you get paid to tour Florida (except for the fact that during the days we are hustling work out I guess). Once again if you need me to make you a permission slip for your significant other to work out of town, this probably isn’t the job for you.
In all seriousness we are an Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action Employer and will consider all qualified applicants for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, protected veteran status or disability status and maintain a Drug Free Workplace.

Due to the ridiculous number of phone calls from people that obviously did not read paragraph one, I will respond by emails only. If you have a resume prepared shoot me a copy of that, but if you do not have one but think you are a good fit please go ahead and say so and I will respond as quickly as I can.
