Maintenance Mechanic

Maintenance Mechanic

Location: St. Louis, MO
Type: Direct Placement
Pay: 75000.00 - 75000.00 USD per Year

Do you have electrical and mechanical experience as a maintenance mechanic with strong problem-solving and decision-making skills? Does fixing mechanical and electrical systems sound right up your alley? 
PEG’s client is seeking a Maintenance Mechanic for a direct hire role to help a growing manufacturer stay in tip-top shape. You’ll troubleshoot, repair, install, and perform preventative maintenance on systems and chemical processing equipment. You’ll work in beautiful downtown St. Louis, MO. This is an in-person role for obvious reasons (to fix stuff, they need you there in person – no remote repair here). This opportunity offers an excellent starting salary with a bonus, growth-orientated culture, a great benefits package with minimal cost to you, and a work/ life balance! 

What You’ll Do:

  • Perform basic and preventative maintenance
  • Repair and troubleshoot chemical processing equipment (if it’s broken, you’ll find a way)
  • Respond to emergency maintenance repair calls – talking about urgent situations (Call you “Mr./Ms. Fix It”)
  • Install electrical wiring and equipment
  • Maintain repair records and files
  • Help with renovations

To Be Successful, It’ll Help If You Have:
  • 2 plus years of previous experience as a maintenance mechanic or in a similar field
    • Experience repairing and performing preventative maintenance on chemical processing equipment
    • Knowledgeable about plumbing, electrical systems, and mechanical systems
  • Basic welding skills preferred
  • Certification or diploma in a related field is a plus but not required
  • Ready to learn new skills and grow

Your Benefits:
  • Health, Dental, and Vision
  • 100% Employer-covered life insurance, short-term disability, and long-term disability
  • 5% BONUS!!
  • Continuing education opportunities
  • 401K match
Why This May Not Be For You:
  • You’ve never held a screwdriver, much less tried to fix wiring or equipment. Sorry, for your safety and everyone else’s, it’s better if you have experience.
  • You’re really not into making a competitive salary or receiving great benefits.
  • You prefer to be stuck in a cubicle all day instead of moving around and fixing stuff.
