Come in 7:00 am. turn on computer, print out project bid board, update Prolog from email responses, input any late bids, print daily bid list log, call every sub for every trade. Later in the day call more subcontractors to bid on projects. I learned how to read drawings and the ins and outs of the estimating department for a small general contractor. Management was not bad but some aspect could have done a lot better to maintain it. The hardest part of being and Estimating Admin was making sure subcontractors bid on projects when they say they are going to bid. The most enjoyable aspect of my job was working with great hard working Peers who just as hungry to get the job done.
