Construction Superintendent Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Construction Superintendent in Harrisburg:
"Construction Superintendent."
Don't be afraid to go for the job. The worst they can say is no. If you don't have all the credentials they are looking for, they may still call you because you have a great work history. You might be who they are looking for. Again, the worst that'll happen is they'll say, no. Learn to accept failure because it only makes you that much better.

Construction Superintendent in Raleigh-Durham:
"Knowledge and communication."
People and communication skills are a big part of your job. Clients these days are highly educated knowing that, you need to have a good knowledge of the construction process.

Construction Superintendent in Murfreesboro:
"Don't try to do everything alone!"
Hire good help. Its a rough job. If it was easy women and children would do it.

Construction Superintendent in Wausau:
"Organization."
Multi- tasking is critical in this position, the more organized you are the better you are going to be in this position.

Construction Superintendent in Petaluma:
"Give it your all."
Work ethic is most important, give as much of your time and mentoring young carpenters!

Construction Superintendent in Raleigh:
""It is always now""
-Don't expect anyone to do anything they're supposed to do; the way they're supposed to do it, without supervision...especially if it will impact you. That goes for co-workers, trade partners, supervisors, inspectors and everybody in between. -Don't allow yourself to be taken advantage of. -Eliminate the "favor" dynamic between yourself and your vendors/trades by holding everybody accountable. -Do not work for free. -Don't underestimate the incompetence level of architects and engineers; more often than not...they are unbelievably bad at providing good service. -Learn to be proactive as opposed to reactive...this takes experience; once you've failed at something once, you have everything you need to prevent it from happening again. -Treat everyone you meet with respect. -Do not burn bridges; even when a relationship becomes irreconcilable, find a way to mitigate any lasting damage; you may be forced into working with that company/person later on in your career. -Communicate.

Construction Superintendent in Salt Lake City:
"How The Company Treats People."
Check out the company you are going to work for before you start working for them to make sure that they are not dishonest and they treat their employees with respect if not run has fast as you can in a new direction. I have always tried to finish what I started and if you start a project with a bad company that is dishonest and treats their subcontractors and employees poorly it can make it along way to the finish line before you can move on to a new company.
