Maintenance Technician Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Maintenance Technician?

Maintenance Technician in St. Louis:
"Worst of the best."
Pros: Pretty flexible schedule. If I need to change my schedule or hours for a day or week they are pretty flexible about that.
Cons: Factory is always hot. I can never do a good enough job. There is no positive reinforcement. If you work hard and beat the original goal the only response given by management is why didn't you get more done?

Maintenance Technician in Greenville:
"Like my job.."
Pros: I like that every day brings something new. One day I am working on refrigerators and the next I may be getting an apartment ready for a new move in.
Cons: Being on call a couple times a month, limits the activities you can do outside of work.

Maintenance Technician in Orlando:
"The job is great! Get to meet a lot of people."
Pros: Vacation is the best time for me.
Cons: They way this place is ran, starting from the people from top, mangers!!!

Maintenance Technician in Evansville:
"Being a maintenance mechanic."
Pros: I like working with machines, figuring out why they don't work, and then making it so they do work. I like the challenge of problem solving. I like the idea of working with robots, programming, and getting them to do what they are supposed to do.
Cons: Working night shift, not having the tools and support of the company. Long hours.

Maintenance Technician in Burlington:
"Love My Work, Not The Rewards."
Pros: Trouble shooting electronic, mechanical and computer systems. I have always loved tinkering, and inventing/adapting electronic solutions to problems. A nice self paced environment, where I have time to do my own projects. And good pay.
Cons: The big company politics. There are so many levels of management that any change, issue, new hire, etc... Takes an act of congress and a long time to complete. Also being expected to do the work of 2 techs with no incentive pay or otherwise due to a dwindling business. The resistance to change has to be the biggest drawback. It's important to note my review is company specific not maintenance in general!

Maintenance Technician in Window Rock:
"It's A Good Learning Experience."
Pros: Travel to the other branches to do repairs.
Cons: Doing renovation projects and doing cost estimate and material cost.
