Job Description for Maintenance Mechanic
Maintenance mechanics work with large production machines, typically in factories. They oversee the machine’s performance and upkeep. Maintenance mechanics coordinate the maintenance of a machine with managers of the organization. Unless a machine breaks down, maintenance typically occurs during during off-peak hours so production continues efficiently. Mechanics clean the machine entirely by removing parts and cleaning thoroughly. They oil or lubricate moving parts so that they continue working effectively. If they see any parts that may be damaged or broken, they document the problem and order new parts for the machine. If the maintenance mechanic is working on a machine that broke down unexpectedly, they are responsible for fixing it as quickly and efficiently as possible so there is as little downtime as possible.
