Estimator at Global Business Solutions
in Costa Mesa, CA

"I love being able to be an integral part of the construction process. I find that I am able to be extremely helpful at the front-end of a project, and estimating is the best opportunity to add value to an organization. I find it fun to estimate many projects and to see the project through to completion. I do not enjoy the volatility of the market and changing companies."

Estimator at McLean County Asphalt & Concrete
in Bloomington, IL

"Being an estimator allowed me to apply real world mathematics and minimal puzzle solving, which I feel to be fairly important. Unfortunately though, Estimators and Engineers have a reputation for being 'less than lively'. The downside to my specific case was politics. I experienced a fair amount of bureaucracy and politicking in my daily endeavors."
