43k to 68k if I found what gs9 and gs11 mean. I really have extremely limited knowledge of fed pay scales. Nor do I wish to learn any more

A great opportunity for a young skilled surveyor who wants no one looking over their shoulder and can handle a boat load of paperwork and maintain control of a massive amount of land.

That sums it up pretty good.  The paperwork is really not all that much though.  The pay is - quite frankly - not good, but the benefits are very good.  I turned down a substantial amount of money in the private sector for a federal job.  The part that attracted me is the lifestyle.  Set your own hours, no traveling, home every night, no worries about being "billable" or marketing, or wondering where you next project will come from.  You run the program however you think is appropriate, work in the field yourself, or make it an office job if you prefer.  Work alone, (help is there if you need it) set your own pace, you make the job whatever you want it to be - you won't feel pressured, especially if you're used to corporate setting.  It's pretty sweet really.

Nice professional response. Look up GS9/GS11. 

What would you expect as a professional response? Would it have been better if he said sure I will take that job and wait till my first paycheck to find out what it pays.

Also remember that some areas pay more/less - it's not the same nationwide for a particular GS level.  I think it's a pretty close range but some high cost areas pay a little more than someone in Nebraska, for example.  Point is, you wouldn't be doing it for the money.

It seems like a pretty good gig. I was a consultant working with the outgoing surveyor. He checked my work as well as did other surveying duties. He seemed to enjoy it
