Position is in the inside sales area of the service division of Powell Industries (NASDAC POWL), located in Houston, Texas. Our office is located 1 mile west of Hobby Airport on Airport Blvd.

I am retiring after 25 years with the company and at age 64. I may move into a part-time consulting contract with Powell, only working two days a week, but not critical, as I'm shifting to expand my time managing Renaissance Faires in the Texas area.

We have immediate openings for at least two individuals in the estimating (inside sales) area. Work includes receiving customers specifications (which can fall between a hand-drawn sketch on a napkin to a several thousand page specification). Basic electrical theory is necessary (know the ANSI device designations). We use a custom Oracle business system, which will be taught. Knowledge of Microsoft applications (Word, Excel, etc.) needed.

Often, our customers are not technically oriented, so the estimators must be able to communicate with the customer and determine their present and future needs (i.e., the switchgear must do "this" now, but we want to do "this" in a few years).

The preference would be for a retired Nuke Electrician, but any rating with electrical theory background should be able to get trained up.

Oh yes, Powell is the largest independent switchgear manufacturer in North America. We have factories in Houston, North Canton, Ill, Canada, and the U.K. We manufacture power distribution equipment from 480V to 38,000V, motor control, power control rooms, integrated control systems. Five years ago, we purchased the General Electric PowerVac switchgear division, and we continue to grow.
