The SAM ExperienceFrom our team members’ perspective
“SAM has prepared me very well for my career in surveying by allowing me to work on various types of projects and ultimately brought me to the area I enjoyed most which is construction surveying. I definitely feel like we are a team here at SAM and I am working in an environment where I don’t feel afraid to ask questions on how to gain more knowledge on something. Choosing SAM after my internship was definitely the right choice for me.”
Survey Crew Chief
“While interning at SAM, I quickly realized this was where I wanted to begin my career once I graduated college. I was soon hired on as a full time Survey Technician II and realized the only thing that could hold me back from excelling and advancing in my career with SAM was myself. Within a few years, I was promoted to Project Manager and then Senior Project Manager shortly thereafter. I would not be the professional I am today without this company and the amazing mentors and opportunities they have provided me.”
Robert Schurig, RPLS
Senior Project Manager
“I started at SAM while I was enrolled in college. During that time, my managers worked with my course schedule to allow me the opportunity to work full time and finish school. That flexibility was crucial in earning my degree. I became very knowledgeable with the programs and equipment used in our industry because SAM gave me access to the latest technology, both hardware and software. I have been challenged with learning new tools and workflows throughout my career progression at SAM.”
Corporate Field Operations Manager
“I graduated with my surveying degree in 2019 and working at SAM has ensured that I will not stop learning. My colleagues and managers encourage an active pursuit of knowledge and experience in surveying through the different types of projects we encounter, as well as, through specialized in-house training opportunities. SAM is committed to supporting my goal of licensure as a Professional Surveyor.”
Mikaela Hicks, LSIT
“SAM has been extremely supportive in my growth and development as a SUE professional. I have had the opportunity to work with the latest technology, innovative solutions, and a team of industry leading experts. All of these and more have helped my professional development and enabled me to achieve a leadership role in my group, while also receiving continuous support to attain my certification as a PE.”
