Survey Party Chief
($48,062.01 - $69,388.80 Annually)

A Survey Party Chief, under general supervision, performs a variety of technical, skilled survey engineering work in the field; supervises a survey crew; and performs related work as required.

An employee of this class performs skilled, technical survey work, including the supervision of a survey crew. Working conditions include: making decisions, occasionally under stressful conditions; performing mathematical calculations and interpreting construction plans quickly so that contractors can keep crews and equipment productive; laboring (examples: pounding stakes and taking measurements) in hot (100+ degrees F) and dusty conditions; and working alongside heavy equipment in traffic, on steep slopes, and near open trenches.

This class can progress through noncompetitive criteria-based promotion to the next higher class of Senior Survey Party Chief after consistently and successfully performing skilled, technical surveying work in the field, including supervision of a survey crew, achieving a “successful performance” on all core value ratings on most recent performance appraisal, and upon becoming licensed in the State of Arizona as a Land Surveyor. Work is performed under the general supervision of the Chief Surveyor who reviews work through reports, results achieved, conferences, and on-site observation, checking for production, accuracy, timeliness, and completeness. This class is FLSA nonexempt.
