Position Available RPLS Washington State
Hi everyone! Hope is doing well and are safe. I'm trying to find a licensed Professional Surveyor for a company located in Everett WA.
I'm also looking for field help. We are heavy in UAV,UAS and Boundary. Right now we are running magnet on fc5000. I will be moving us into Lieca controllers soon.
We have a couple of robotics and soon a Leica GS18i.
Civil3d and ESRI Arcview &Survey.

This is a chance for me to note that I have seen a couple of recent adverts for PLS help in the PDX area that have promised salaries of $100g, $150g, even $200g. Historically pay rates, and cost of living, is even higher in the greater Seattle area. I can't believe that these are without caveats, but it does seem that a glass ceiling has been broken.
it's BECAUSE you're retiring Joe!
That comment may have been offered tongue-in-cheek, but there's probably some truth in it. The average age of licensed land surveyors has been creeping upward for years, and as that cohort (which includes me) reaches retirement age the competition for available talent becomes more intense, thus spurring a rise in salaries.
Maybe I can stick it out until I am 80 or 90 and make up for years were wages weren't near that good 🙂 As it is, I am already planning to go to 68-70 and that isn't that far since I am 63 now. What's another few years?
$150-200k will get a lot of attention from young'ish multi-state surveyors with nearly 20 years of experience. The problem is...those advertisements are usually just click bait.
