Patrick’s Answer

Construction managers are paid by salary, typically every two weeks although sometimes weekly. Most workers who work for a contractor or construction company are pay hourly, again every two weeks however some smaller companies may “contract” workers for each job, paying a flat rate upon completion. These are typically short term jobs such as installing one small piece of a larger build, or companies that do one specific thing, like pouring concrete or installing roofing.

Hi there, Jana!

Just so you know, being a construction manager usually means you're on a salary, not getting paid by the hour or day. It's an annual thing, with a nice cherry on top - you might even get bonuses or a share of the profits if the company and project do well!

Here are the top three go-to resources for all things construction management:

1. U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (bls.gov)
2. Construction Management Association of America (cmaanet.org)
3. Occupational Outlook Handbook by the U.S. Department of Labor

Wishing you a world of blessings and joy!
James.

Darin’s Answer

Some construction managers may be paid hourly but many are probably on salary which can be good or bad. If you’re being paid well and receive good benefits you may not mind being asked to work overtime without additional compensation. Some employers use salary to try to squeeze as many as hours as possible from their employees which if employees are not being well compensated could create dissatisfaction with the job and cause them to look for something or someplace else.

Travis’s Answer

Hello!
That very much depends on the position or application. Most positions will pay hourly based on the agreed upon salary. There are also construction positions that hire day workers that would be paid daily upon completion of assigned tasks and then based on availability and jobs remaining there might be more days where they could do more work.
There are also some positions that might pay based on tasks completed, a pay by piece type of model. The more tasks or assigned objects created will then dictate how much pay is received.
