"That I Would Be Required To Have Sales Abilities."
Senior Estimator:
Decide what your track should be and find a company that is structured to accommodate your future. For example, I work for a company as a senior estimator. However, I manage, and try to sell design build projects as well. If I had a choice, I would be an estimator exclusively. And leave the selling to the sales people.

January 2015
"Get it in writing!"
Senior Estimator:
The short version is...promises were made that I asked to have in writing. I accepted the job prior to that written promise and now in two years, my boss who made the promises is gone. I have had no review, no raise, no bonus and no way of knowing how one has the opportunity to achieve anything at this company. I have gone all the way up to the President and still have no answers. GET IT IN WRITING!
