Hello everyone, this is my first post on this forum and I had a few questions for the vets.
I recently switched fields and I've landed a job as a bidding estimator/contractor for a local HVAC company. As I understand it, a bidding estimator would be the person that takes all the job info from the site survey and comes up with the cost to complete the job.
Now, if this industry is one that has bids from multiple competitors and preparing the bid is my job then I may just be filling out all of the paperwork and compiling all the required documents to repond.
I am brand new to this field, but have always had an interest in something HVAC related. I am excited to start this off on the right foot and know everything I possibly can before I start on 2/20.
There is a 3 month training course on site, and at various locations around the area. I am focused and determined to do the best of my ability. I feel as though I am a fast learner and dedicated person. I recently got engaged, signed the dotted line on a townhome, and now this new job...it is very important for me to succeed here.
My questions are pretty straightfoward, I just want to hear from you all that have experience in the bidding department and if you have any insight/advice for me before I get started.
Thanks for taking the time to read my post and I hope to be able to contribute to this forum.
