Physical Plant - Maintenance/Repair/HVAC Featured

  2021-07-16     Powell's Books     2720 NW 29th Ave     $19.25 hour  

Powell's Books is looking to grow our Physical Plant (Facilities maintenance) team!

Do you enjoy repairing things and using power tools? Do you have a hobby you love that results in building or assembling things? Have you always wanted to wear steel-toed boots to work (paid for by the company), use a scissor lift or power washer, or drive a forklift? The Physical Plant role is a great opportunity to turn what you enjoy outside of work into a career by joining the Physical Plant team. Because the Physical Plant Generalist is the entry-level role for the team, you just need to have a desire to learn and a proclivity for repair and maintenance. You’ll be trained on how it all works at Powell’s, but the experience you bring to the game can be from your personal life and hobbies.

Physical Plant Specialist is a more senior role and requires some professional experience in the field.

The Physical Plant folks do everything from build shelves and carts, paint, repair plumbing, repair machinery, track down where an elusive leak is coming from and repair it, move and assemble or disassemble items in the stores, warehouse, and offices companywide, and perform a wide variety of general maintenance. Basically, the team makes sure our buildings function well and safely. A typical day might include:

  • Check your voicemail and email to see if any new tasks or concerns have cropped up.

  • Do a perimeter check of our buildings, which might include pressure washing, raking, taking care of trash left around the building, and take care of graffiti.

  • Check the lighting, HVAC systems, and water supplies in our buildings and take care of any issues that arise.

  • Check-in on the status of projects like carpentry and installations to see if there’s anything that needs to be handled.

  • Conduct inventories of maintenance supplies and place any needed orders.

The schedule is to be determined and will be 5 days and at least one weekend day. ‘Flex time’ will allow a schedule that can be flexible (to some degree) daily within a 37.5 hour week.

We are accepting applications through Sunday, July 4th.

Powell's Books is proud to be an Equal Opportunity Employer.
