Almost all the stations you'll support are located in Chicagoland, but once a month you'll travel to stations in Green Bay, WI and Davenport, IA. On occasion, you might be asked to cover another territory in order to provide sufficient coverage. Limited overnight travel will be required.
The RoleAs a Field Service Maintenance Mechanic II, you will inspect, maintain and repair the fueling equipment and ensure an esthetically pleasing appearance for your assigned CNG stations in this territory. You will provide equipment and control maintenance and create positive customer relations that promote Clean Energy. You will travel to assigned stations each day for general maintenance and repair, to make sure safety interlocks for shut-down systems are working properly, and/or to automatically rebuild compressors after 5000 hours of use.
Some stations are public access and others are used only by private fleets. You'll get to know your customers, checking in upon arrival, and building a line of open communication. You might meet with the phone company to repair or install a line or take time to paint or clean the site. These are your stations to monitor and you will take responsibility for their overall care, with the lion's share of your duties being control and mechanical maintenance. You also will serve as backup for adjacent territories, as needed.
Specifically, you will:
- Make periodic inspections of fueling locations and equipment to determine that proper and normal operating conditions are being met.
- Check and record operational data such as fluid levels, temperatures and pressures, compare to trends and have the ability to make corrections as needed.
- Install, remove and modify fueling locations and equipment.
- Maintain all fueling related equipment and structures in accordance with manufactures and Clean Energy guidelines.
- Clean and maintain fueling locations by picking up trash, emptying trash cans and dumpsters, hand cleaning and polishing fueling equipment, and painting and maintaining the canopy, lot, islands, and surrounding landscaping in and outside of enclosures.
- Repair, replace, and adjust malfunctioning equipment to restore proper operating condition specified in regulations and repair manuals.
- Inspect, maintain, adjust, repair or replace electrical equipment including electrical wiring, conduit, panels, switch gear, switches, gauges, transducers, solenoids, gas dryers, actuators, motors, meters and controls for safe and proper operating condition.
- Inspect, maintain, adjust, repair or replace mechanical equipment such as compressors pumps, engines, intercoolers, after coolers, heat exchangers, piping, tubing, fittings, filters, traps, gas dryers, fasteners, valves and actuators for safe and proper operating condition.
More Good ReasonsExcellent Compensation
In addition to a competitive wage, we offer a comprehensive benefits package that includes medical, dental and other insurances, a 401(k) plan with discretionary company match, paid time off and more. You may also receive a company truck, which you'll fuel at the stations, a cell phone and uniform.
You bring strong learning acumen and a great attitude and we'll provide the tools you need to succeed. As you begin with us, you'll have a week of comprehensive online
classes followed by focused training in your assigned area by a Senior Field Service Maintenance Mechanic and/or your supervisor. Initially, you will shadow the senior team member and then take point as they support you. Training will be complete when the trainer feels you are ready to handle your responsibilities on your own. There may also be other opportunities to learn. For example, you may be taught to support LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) fueling stations.
Green Standard for Sustainability
You probably already knew that natural gas burns much more cleanly than gasoline and diesel, producing significantly lower greenhouse gas emissions. But did you also know that natural gas is increasingly renewable, using biomethane reclaimed from landfill via waste-to-energy solutions? Clean Energy is helping companies and public organizations meet aggressive environmental goals.
Clean Energy has the right solutions at the right time, as more and more organizations are exploring alternative fuel vehicles and solutions. For instance, in October 2016 we opened a new state-of-the-art CNG station, in partnership with FedEx, in Oklahoma City. The station that will allow over 100 FedEx Freight Class 8 trucks (big-rigs) to use the convenience of fast-fueling as well as money-saving time-fueling.
Keys to SuccessTo qualify and find success in this role, you'll need to be a total package person -- have the technical prowess, a commitment to safety, strong analytical skills, and customer service savvy. As a Field Service Maintenance Mechanic II, you should be capable of troubleshooting, analyzing, and correcting -- handling everything for your sites. With your strong background (the job is roughly 70% mechanical and 30% electrical) you'll find your way, but will first need to learn the terminology, understand and respect the higher pressure, always follow safety protocols, and learn CNG sites. We'll give you the tools you need to succeed through a varied training program, but you should come in, hit the ground running and get right down to the business of learning and performing.
To be the total package person we seek, you should also have these key competencies:
Strong sense of urgency -- a customer-centric attitude and sense of urgency in protecting the client's and Clean Energy's interests. Compressors are on an auto-call system and if there's a problem, your response must be immediate.
A "do what it takes" attitude -- you should be hard-working, dedicated, and present Clean Energy in the best light possible. Attitude is always important.
