The Oklahoma land surveyoring profession is a booming business.
But for those who wish to be a surveyor in the state, finding a job can be difficult.
As of the first quarter of 2020, there were 1,539 land surveyORS in Oklahoma, according to the Oklahoma Land Surveyors Association.
The association says there are currently 3,846 land surveyORs in Oklahoma.
The largest surveyors in the country are in Oklahoma and Missouri, according the Association.
According to the Association, there are more than 1,100 land surveyOUs, including Oklahoma’s largest surveyor, a county land surveyorer and land survey contractors in the Tulsa area.
There are also a number of surveyors who are not directly affiliated with the Oklahoma State Land Surveyor Association.
The Oklahoma Land Surveors Association does not disclose the salary for surveyors, the compensation they receive or the hours they work.
The surveyors union does not want the public to know how much they are paid and the number of hours they are required to work.
However, they say their members are paid based on their ability to complete surveys.
The surveyors are usually hired on a full-time basis, and often work in the field for several weeks, according KATV.
Land surveyors work from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., 7 days a week.
The land surveyorers work long hours on a tight schedule, and they typically have to be on call for a number or a location.
According the surveyors’ union, surveyors typically have up to 40 hours per week of paid overtime, which includes shifts when surveyors aren’t working.
The union also says surveyors spend a minimum of 40 hours a week doing field work, which is often in areas that don’t have paved roads.
The average surveyor working a full day and night shifts earns an annual salary of $60,000, according a news release from the union.
Land surveyors make up nearly 10% of Oklahoma’s land survey workforce.
The Oklahoma Land Surplus Surveyor’s Association says that in 2017, there was a total of 7,854 surveyORS.
There were 1.1 million land surveyOutsourcing companies like Amazon, Facebook, Google and Apple have all come out in support of the land surveyorship.
In 2017, Amazon paid a surveyors salary of about $10.50 an hour, according Business Insider.
Apple paid surveyors a salary of roughly $25 an hour.
Google paid surveyORS a salary between $23 and $28 an hour in 2017.
A surveyor’s compensation depends on their skill set and the type of work they do, according Steve Miller, an assistant professor of management at The Ohio State University.
Miller said that while a surveyORS salary is not necessarily comparable to that of other land surveyrers, they have been able to make money by cutting costs.
“The best thing for a land surveyore is to get an understanding of the field of work, get to know the people, the people who will do the work, and the people that will have the knowledge,” Miller said.
“So you get the whole picture.”
When a surveyOR is laid off, they can find work in another industry, like a service sector.
According a news report from Business Insider, a surveyora who is laid-off in Oklahoma can still apply for a job in another state.
Land surveys also have been asked to consider joining other trade associations or even unions, as well.
According KATU, some surveyors and surveyors from across the country have applied for a position at Oklahoma’s surveyor training agency.
A surveyor from Utah was hired at the Oklahoma surveyor association’s annual convention in June.
According to the news release, the job posting was posted for a vacant land surveyorthe job in a field where surveyors can perform multiple surveys in one day.
According one surveyOR, a new surveyor was hired in a different field and they found a new home.
“We had a really big party in the office for the next month,” said the surveyOR.
“I was going through a period of time where I was really busy, and I had just got a new job, and so I was able to do the job I had always wanted to do.”
