A Day in the Life of a Facilities Maintenance Coordinator

That’s Nice, But What’s the Job?

 

In short, as a Facility Maintenance Coordinator (FMC), you would manage the day-to-day facility maintenance requests that are submitted from dealerships and vehicle reconditioning centers.  The FMC would field and direct multiple trades to appropriate vendors across the country.  The FMC would also be required to collect and interpret large quantities of data into concise reporting and effectively communicate that reporting to members of Senior Management.  In order to do so, the FMC would need to be able to proactively work and communicate with multiple departments within the company including: accounting, marketing, retail, legal, inventory and supply chain.

 

So What Kind of Folks Are We Looking for?

  • Organization and time management skills in spades.  You’ll be handling multiple projects and deadlines that will require you to prioritize then re-prioritize
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills. The ability to talk and write with confidence, charisma and competence for a wide variety of audiences including management and vendors.
  • Killer analytical and reporting abilities.  You’ll need the capability to analyze maintenance data and in return, prepare timely reports on your findings.
  • A mind for the details.  Okay we know “detail-oriented” is on about every job description – but we really mean it! 
  • Agile in a fast-past environment. We move, and we move quickly.  Thriving in an environment that never stops, is a must.
  • Plays well with others.  You will be working in a high-functioning team environment.  We work together in order to win together.
  • Intellectual curiosity.  Why? What? How?  Do you find yourself always wanting to learn more and broaden your knowledge base?  If so, this could be the role for you.
  • Operate automatously.  This isn’t a “hold your hand” kind of role.  We give you autonomy to be creative in your space and do your thing.  We need an individual that is self-motivated to get the work done and get the work done well.
  • Works well in a time crunch.  There will be multiple time sensitive requirements and you’ll need the ability to meet deliverable due dates.
  • Fantastic problem solver.  Your job is not only to find the problem, but more importantly, find the solution.

Qualifications

The Specifics.

  • Ability to manage the existing Facility Maintenance Portal consisting of 300-400 work order requests per month

  • Ensure that the work is performed to an appropriate quality level and complies with company policies, applicable industry standards (OSHA) and legal requirements
