Maintenance Supervisor / Superintendent Reviews

What is it like working as a Maintenance Supervisor / Superintendent?

Maintenance Supervisor / Superintendent in Virginia Beach:
"This Jobs a Lie."
Pros: I enjoy working with contractors, getting my hands dirty, and the over all field of work. I also enjoy being able to speak and learn another language on the job.
Cons: I went in to the job thinking I was supposed to learn directly from the owner on how to operate the business and slowly take over responsibility until I was in control and running the business. It's now almost been two years and I am still on the work trucks every day as an installer and medium between angry contractors and my boss. Yet I can not make major on the job decisions because my boss won't relinquish any power. Also know one has a dedicated position at my job because my boss has to micromanage everything.
