Job Description for Maintenance Manager

Maintenance managers are responsible for an organization or facility's overall maintenance, which includes ensuring that equipment is operated and maintained according to manufacturer specifications, work performed meets safety requirements, and all maintenance workers follow appropriate federal and state safety guidelines. The specific duties of maintenance managers vary according to the specific industry or organization, but generally include creating and following preventive maintenance schedules, overseeing a staff of maintenance or custodial staff, and inspecting and testing equipment or building systems.

A high school education or GED is usually the minimum requirement for maintenance managers; in some cases, an associate's degree is required with additional coursework in maintenance engineering, mechanical engineering or industrial engineering being a plus. Certification in an area relevant to maintenance, such as hydraulics or electrical systems, is usually also desirable. Most importantly, several years' experience as a maintenance worker is required before advancing to the level of maintenance manager.

Maintenance managers spend some time behind a desk, using a computer to generate budgets, prepare policies, etc. However, much of the managers' time is usually spent on-site, reviewing staff members' performance, making repairs, or inspecting the condition of a facility. In addition to technical knowledge, maintenance managers must possess excellent time management skills and be adept at coordinating and following multiple deadlines. They should have good communication skills, since the manager must effectively direct staff, interact with vendors and report to other organization staff. Maintenance managers should also handle stress well, have good attention to detail, and have the ability to follow specific, technical specifications and instructions. Lastly, some maintenance managers are required to remain on-call after work hours for emergencies.
