Maintenance Engineer Reviews

What is it like working as a Maintenance Engineer?
Maintenance Engineer in Dayton:
"Get Ready To Be Busy."
Pros: Work on different projects regularly, experience different cultures of people everyday, control your own project schedule and availability must be open.
Cons: Too much on your shoulders, work 7 days a week and expected to do so. Expected to work on large jobs that will take weeks for a contractor, and be expected to get it done in one week max even though you have contractors that have given bids to get them done properly.
