Job Description


The main objective of a District Manager is to provide the leadership, training, and discipline as outlined in the company goals and objectives and this job description in order to manage all aspects of the operations while assuming full responsibility for all customer and/or geographic assignments. Based on the structure adopted by Pauley Construction, each District Manager will be responsible for managing certain expectations to accomplish the goals and objectives of this position.

Based on the structure adopted by Pauley Construction, a District Manager will operate a business unit team that is sized to accommodate the requirements of a customer(s) within a district or a geographic assignment. In some cases the structure may need to be adjusted to meet customer challenges. The size will also need to accomplish the financial goals as established for the District Manager.

Supervisors, Foreman, and Crew Leaders will normally report to the District Manager. In some cases a Superintendent can report to a District Manager with the approval of the Area or Regional Manager.

A District Manager will normally report to an Area Manager. However, due to isolation, growth potential, and sizing limitations, a District Manager may report to a Regional Manager.
