The day begins with you, or office manager. This is a position that requires more then office work. A Construction site is a home for men for months. Mondays can be gloomy, because the long drive back to site after weekend at home. Fridays can be FAST and fantastic because they are going home for the weekend. You are so many departments, alone. H.R., Purchasing, Accounting, Biologist, Coordinator/ Public Relations/ Janitor! I learned quickly men (construction) aren't interested in conversation until after the 3rd cup of coffee which was prepared by you before he arrives. NEVER get involved when 2 men disagree, they speak to each other harsh and its o.k. NEVER forget to order/deliver a message/ or anything regarding "MUD". "Mud" is cement, and its a very big deal, so always notify the supervisor asap about MUD! Most supers are great, they don't ask you anything unless they need know. If a guy from outside slides in office to often, supervisor address it before you notice. The hardest part was not talking. The most enjoyable part was learning how many small jobs and BIG parts of a project.
Guys dont really bother you about stuff, so its quiet
