Being offered a position as Electrical Construction Project Manager. This is a new position for this company and I will be the only one in this position at this point. We do small and medium sized commercial jobs. Running anywhere from 5 to 15 jobs at once. Jobs range from $50,000 to $300,000 for the electrical portion of the project. Just some input on income expectations please.

Depending on location and how many years experience you have, it could be between 80k-150k.

It looks like Texas is lower than the national average, you are between 60k-120k

You should be offered at east GF pay with transportation and either some incentives or something like 10 hours per week of OT as you will be for sure working 5-10s and maybe an 8 or catching a few night projects.

Those small jobs require quite a bit of logistical work but have better margins than big jobs.
Something to consider. You should expect an PM assistant if you are running more than 2 million in projects.

I would say that $5 hr or $10k more a year than general foreman rate would be about right then most companies offer a percentage bonus for ontime or sooner completion.
