Hiring Determined Estimator

January 30, 2017

If you are someone who desires to be challenged in the work that you do, who is looking for a career instead of a job, who has a positive upbeat attitude, and who has an interest in working on selective private negotiated projects, then our Estimator position may be the role for you. Ryan Gootee General Contractors, LLC is seeking a person with these characteristics. We look for ambitious people who have a desire to learn and grow year after year.  Since inception, 90% of our projects have been with private clients and 72% of our projects have been negotiated.

As our Estimator, you will be involved in all aspects of the construction process. You will learn from a seasoned team and work with some of the best professionals in the industry. You will work on a variety of projects from historic renovations and restorations to architecturally forward ground-up projects. Every project is different and offers new challenges. You will interact with owners, architects, subcontractors, suppliers, and the RGGC team to provide a best value proposal for our clients.

As an Estimator, you will prepare construction budgets by studying plans, reviewing specifications, and identifying all project costs for a variety of jobs. You will effectively communicate with design professionals, subcontractors, and suppliers in order to obtain bids while qualifying all subcontractors and negotiating price.

Our Estimators are not pigeon holed but rather play an integral role in a collaborative team effort of the projects’ success. Our preconstruction services include involvement and input from the CEO, executive team, project managers and administrative staff. The role is fun, challenging and provides you the opportunity to participate in the estimating process from beginning to end. As your skills advance, so will your opportunity for advancement.

RGGC has three times been voted one of the best places to work in New Orleans. In 2015, we won a prestigious National AGC Build America Award. Our company is a family owned business. Founded 11 years ago, RGGC has been profitable every year in spite of the recent recession and other local market variables. We set high standards for ourselves, and our clients recognize this as they come back to us time and time again for new projects.

Our company takes great pride in providing our clients, subcontractors, and design professionals the highest standards in the industry. We have a collaborative, supportive, empowering culture. All of our employees sincerely enjoy working with each other and actively work to support the team and our overriding philosophy of “doing the right thing.”

If you are an energetic, self-starter with a positive attitude, you will fit well with the rest of the team. We offer our employees outstanding benefits and profit sharing (as we grow you grow), along with the opportunity to participate in helping your favorite charity.

If you get excited about a new opportunity, with new challenges and a great company please send your resume to:
