EXERIENCED Construction Project Manager and Estimator
Experienced, Proficient Professionals Needed
If you encounter a “brick wall” in life and drive right through it, because you couldn’t go around, under, or over it, then this job is for you. If you can juggle more than 10 balls in the air at any one time or if you have an eye for detail and are concerned about quality, not just quantity, then this job is for you. If you thrive on working to seemingly impossible deadlines, but you find a way to achieve it nonetheless, then this job for you. If you would like to work for a company where the only limitation for growth is your own ambition, then, you guessed it, this job is for you.
Successful applicant shies away from the monotonous, enjoys interacting with people, and is able to critically analyze situations to create “win-win” solutions and achieve a polished image for the company and its employees. This individual is a self-starter,who unavoidably (and involuntarily) “multi-tasks” and seems to always seek out an improved way of achieving most any goal.
The applicant must have the ability to read and interpret specifications and blueprints for commercial projects and will develop project take-offs using sales proposals, specifications, and engineering designs, as well as develop cost estimates for projects, ensuring accuracy in materials, components and labor costs, as well as non-material or labor costs related to the projects.
This is long-term opportunity for the highly organized and intelligent applicant who thrives on the challenge of managing people, tasks, and detailed information in a manner that is both professionally and personally rewarding.
It is a fast paced, high volume position, and may not be for everyone. That’s okay. We’re looking only for one “right” person at a time. The successful applicant has an excellent memory, a good eye for detail, and a willingness to learn. They will also have proficient computer skills and a stable work history.
Effective telephone and writing skills are essential to the applicant's long-term success with the company. The intention for the successful applicant is a long-term relationship, so consistent attendance and commitment to working 40 hours per week (or more when needed), is critical to the building of this foundation.
Our company in Shreveport, Louisiana serves the construction industry, including general contractors and architects. Projects managed by the company are located throughout Louisiana and Mississippi, primarily, but include Texas, Arkansas, Florida, and California. The company was founded 42 years ago, is still managed by the original family owners, and maintains an office in south Louisiana and Mississippi.
Again, it is expected that there are few who will read this advertisement and find that this position would be a good match for them. We are seeking a special person and we are prepared to be equally as special of a company to work for.
If you believe that this position is the type of challenging environment you are prepared for and that your experience and abilities can be of valuable service to our company, then we invite you to send us your resume so that we might visit with you soon.
We look forward to hearing from you!
Proficient knowledge of the door, hardware, and specialties industries, and experience in managing other team members and processes necessary for a successful, long term business operation.

About Avallone Architectural Specialties, LLC
It all started in a garage.
Well, not exactly a garage - but a small, back-room office, where Louis Avallone Sr. dreamed of building something bigger than himself. Shortly after immigrating to the United States from Italy in 1964, Louis Sr. began working toward his own personal American Dream, bringing with him an unwavering determination and a strong belief in the power of hard, honest work.
After attending LSU in Baton Rouge, he began a career in the construction industry, first as an estimator and later founding his own business, where he has practiced those same principles for almost fifty years.
We could say a lot about what we do, and how we do it.
Yes, we are licensed with the Louisiana State Licensing Board for Contractors. Yes, we are members of the Home Builders Association. Yes, we've been in business for almost forty years, with experienced, qualified technicians who have lots and lots of experience under their tool belts.
And yes, we provide continuing education and training so that our people are always growing, developing, and thriving, whether they're twenty-two or sixty-two. Many of our people have been with us for a decade or more - long enough to f...eel like family.
More important, though, is the why - the reason we're here, the reason we run our business the way we do. At the heart of our organization is a set of four core values - the ones we live and breathe every day:
1. Do What You Say You're Going To Do.
2. Be Considerate Of Others.
3. Do What Is Right.
4. Maintain a Positive Attitude.
This is what you can expect when you work with us. Each day we strive harder to do better - and to be better. We never take anything for granted. We think of our business as more than how we make a living - it's how we live our lives. We like to think we're a little bit different in that way.
We believe in hard work. We believe in integrity. We believe in real relationships with real people. We love what we do, and we love helping people. And whether you came to the United States from somewhere else, like Louis Sr., or whether you were born on American soil, we'll do our very best work for you. The fruited planes may be abundant, and the purple mountains may be majestic, but the true beauty of America - like in our organization - is in its people.
We'd be honored to work with you.
