Inside Coatings Supervisor is a very interesting job that you may not have directly considered. This role is responsible for supervising various craft General Foremen/Foremen and ensuring resources are efficiently distributed across multiple work areas. The job is counted on to ensure assigned crews’ performance are in compliance with specifications and within schedules and budgets. Supervisors monitor actual performance versus planned rates and other metrics as determined by Project Management, and in doing so, primarily report to the Project Manager or Project Managers for daily scheduled work priorities, coordination between other disciplines, and assigned building tasks.

As a Coatings Supervisor, you would establish technical and site-specific prioritization of work activities and craft crew distribution. You would be counted on to coordinate with QC Inspectors to schedule required inspections and with Field Engineering and customer representatives for questions with work plans, design documents, materials, and other work control documents.
