I was in charge of a finish crew installing stairs and handrail in new buildings. I would be given a build sheet for each project that would tell me the number of man-hours allowed for each job, or portion of that job. I would have to keep track of the number of work hours for each project to make sure we didn't go over and keep my project manager updated on our progress. I evaluated work being done as well as personnel evaluations. I was also my job to make sure the crew and I were following all policies and procedures. Welding, grinding, painting, and using a crane were our most common day to day activities. I had to be able to read blueprints and keep the guys lined out on the project, as well as make sure they had the tools and equipment to do the job at hand. Safety was always my number one priority.
I was a diesel technician, I would work in the shop as well as the field. I performed various duties form oil changes to engine overhauls. When working in the field it was up to me to make a decision on what was wrong with the piece of equipment and what needed to be done to fix it. Sometimes it meant long days and late nights. I made sure all of my work and parts were well documented on the invoice so nothing got missed during billing. I also did a lot of welding and fabrication. I welded a lot of equipment back together, and also build items from scratch.
I was the owner and manager/supervisor of Jensen's Ag Service, a farm equipment repair and fabrication shop. I would plan and oversee the day to day operations in the shop and in the field. As a new business owner, I developed short and long term goals and plans to help be more successful. I would then evaluate those goals as time went on and see if I was meeting them and also what I could do to improve. I would put together a budget every month and then monitor money going in and out, always trying to stay within that budget. As the business grew, I would have to figure in bigger ticket items (more tools) and how and when they could be purchased. I developed all the rules and policies for the shop. I also would evaluate the jobs being done in the shop and in the field to make sure everything was done correctly. I would meet with customers, answer any questions they might have and make sure we were all on the same page with the work being performed on their equipment. I took care of billing at the end of every month. I made sure all of the invoices were completed and sent out to the customers. All completed work had to be filed so I could keep track of invoices paid, and what work was done when. At the beginning of every month, I would pay all the bills from the month prior. Any extra time was spent in the shop or in the field working on equipment.

I have been a lead-worker for the past two winters. During that time I would oversee personnel, prioritize work, and ensure adequate staffing and resources were available.
I would evaluate crew performance, and if any issues came up I would pass that information on to my manager if it couldn't be handled at a crew level. Throughout the winter I would set goals for myself and the crew and evaluate our progress as time went on.
I have volunteered for several lead work projects outside of winter operations. Some of those projects would require me to monitor or control a specific budget that had been given to me. All work and materials had to stay within that budget.
