Maintenance Mechanics are also responsible for troubleshooting and repairing AC/DC electrical systems, reading schematics, and using electrical testing equipment (Volt-Ohm meter, amp meter, oscilloscope). Our entry-level Maintenance Mechanics have a basic understanding of Programmable Logic Controls and contribute a unique skillset through the use of preventative maintenance systems and work order tracking. Maintenance Mechanics have the skill and flexibility to work on any equipment within the facility and to operate lathes, mills, arc and Heliarc® welders for repair, and fabrication. Although you will start out working for Frito-Lay, this job can open the door to career opportunities with our parent company, PepsiCo. We set industry standards in terms of pay and benefits. We also offer unbeatable benefits including health insurance, dental and vision, retirement savings benefits including 401(k) with company contribution, vacation days and much more. Work will vary from day to day depending on need and your hours will vary by assigned location. It also gets loud and the Frito-Lay manufacturing facilities are large. While we want everyone to feel comfortable, our ability to control the temperature in our warehouses is limited. Indoor warehouse working conditions are impacted by seasons and the weather. Before going any further, you should know that our Maintenance team is known for two critical areas of expertise: * Understanding of high-voltage wiring (480V 3-phase motors) * Multi-craft maintenance and repair (e.g. performing interrelated repairs on electrical systems and mechanical systems) Are you comfortable, competent, and capable with high-voltage wiring and multi-craft repair? If you answered yes, our team would welcome your contributions to our daily operations. We asked our Maintenance Mechanics what we should tell you about your work day, and this is what they had to say: * You will work with our experienced mechanics on difficult repairs * You are willing to work under pressure to fix equipment * You will work urgently to get the equipment back up and running * You will be troubleshooting issues on a wide variety of equipment * You will conduct repair failures of production and facilities equipment * You will ensure maximum equipment efficiency, effectiveness, and reliability * You will apply basic knowledge and then get help to make a repair * Responding to maintenance calls is part of your job, and this can sometimes mean helping complete a repair that has already been started * You will inspect machines, develop repair lists and identify short-term and long-term repairs so that machines run correctly * You will work from task lists when diagnosing machines and taking corrective actions Professional insight and knowledge of the operation of our equipment will enable you to understand problems and take action to resolve issues. Do you have technical school training, a certification or manufacturing or welding experience? If so, this entry-level position may be right for you. Please be sure that you meet the following minimum requirements for this position: * You are at least 18 years of age or older * You will be required to work on weekends and holidays * Ability to lift 15 to 50 pounds with or without a reasonable accommodation * You are able to stand and walk for extended periods of time with or without a reasonable accommodation * You are able to climb, bend, reach, stoop, kneel, and stretch for extended periods with or without a reasonable accommodation * You are willing and able to work in an environment that has extreme temperatures, humidity, hazardous/loud equipment, and slippery surfaces Mechanics who are considering applying often ask us what characteristics our leadership looks for in this important position. This should give you an idea of what managers are seeking: * Customer Service: given our emphasis on mechanical aptitude, you might be surprised to see customer service listed here, but remember we interact with all levels of team members on the floor. It is important that you, and we as a team, treat all team members with the same level of service as we would our consumers. * Flexibility: you'll be switching gears, shifting priorities, and balancing task lists with calls for maintenance repairs. Flexibility - and keeping your cool - will allow you to both focus and prioritize your work. * Self-Starter: you will often find yourself working unsupervised, so taking ownership of your quality and speed of work is essential when conducting preventative maintenance or addressing equipment failure. * Safety Focused: your attention to company policies and procedures regarding safety will minimize risks to yourself, your team, and the quality of our products. Safety is everyone's job at Frito-Lay. We hope that you can imagine yourself on the team. Does this sound like you? We must be honest with you: there will be tough days. When we experience downtime, we are working under pressure to fix equipment. We take it in stride because we believe, and our Maintenance Mechanics agree, that the rewards are worth it.
