Growing company in the power industry for renewable and utility infrastructure
Estimator (Current Employee) – Hickory, NC – February 12, 2018
Work schedule is usually from 8 AM to 5 PM but varies depending on workload and tasks needing to be accomplished. Relaxed management with family time valued at highest levels of management.
Work is independent and collaborative effort from every office. Once trained, you own your work and held accountable for your discipline to have tasks accomplished. Working in the office side, a person must be able to self perform independently. Management will provide training and help at all times but will not babysit someone. Expect to build/grow a career, not a day job looking at the clock every hour waiting to go home.
One of the more difficult traits to learn is the many skills one must learn in a short time frame. This position is the definition of multi-tasking. From completing take-offs, building relationships with clients, suppliers and subcontractors, analyzing markets within US to create pricing, a estimator is expected to understand these roles and more in a efficient manner with little oversight from management.
The most enjoyable part of this position is owning your work. Once everything above is learned and projects are being awarded, knowing all the hard work has paid off 10 fold for yourself and the company. The company and management will recognize your efforts.
Office culture is relaxed and open-minded but with a business etiquette mindset.
Every day is different.
