Field service engineers for electrical equipment are generally hired by companies that use a large amount of electrical equipment; these companies can range from those that provide maintenance for their products to those that require a field service engineer to ensure their own equipment is kept in good condition. The field service engineer performs maintenance, repairs, installation, and removals of various types of equipment as required by their company. They should have a good understanding of the repair and maintenance practices of the company. This varies from company to company; for example, the engineer may need to know how to perform maintenance on ATMs or on air conditioners or on computers or on another type of equipment.
