Eastern Municipal Water District is seeking a highly motivated individual to fill a vacancy in our Mechanical Services Department for the position of Mechanical Maintenance Technician I/II (Potable Water or Lift Station). If you meet the qualifications outlined below, and you are interested in joining a dynamic business environment working with a stellar team of professions, we encourage you to apply for this excellent employment opportunity.

Under immediate (Mechanical Maintenance Technician I) to general (Mechanical Maintenance Technician II) supervision, performs a wide variety of skilled duties in the installation, modification, design, maintenance, and repair of mechanical equipment and machinery used in the operation of large state-of-the-art water and reclaimed water stations, and wastewater treatment facilities; maintains a diverse range of mechanical equipment and appurtenances in raw sewage lift stations, pumping stations and deep wells; and performs related duties as assigned.

DISTINGUISHING CHARACTERISTICS

Mechanical Maintenance Technician I: This is the entry-level classification in the Mechanical Maintenance Technician I/II series. Initially under close supervision, incumbents learn and perform routine duties in the installation, modification, design, maintenance, and repair of mechanical equipment and machinery. As experience is gained, assignments become more varied, complex, and difficult; close supervision and frequent review of work lessen as an incumbent demonstrates skill to perform the work independently. Positions at this level usually perform most of the duties required of the positions at the Mechanical Maintenance Technician II level but are not expected to function at the same skill level and usually exercise less independent discretion and judgment in matters related to work procedures and methods. Work is usually supervised while in progress and fits an established structure or pattern. Exceptions or changes in procedures are explained in detail as they arise.

Mechanical Maintenance Technician II: This is the fully qualified journey-level classification in the Mechanical Maintenance Technician I/II series. Positions at this level are distinguished from the Mechanical Maintenance Technician I level by the performance of the full range of duties as assigned, working independently, and exercising judgment and initiative. Positions at this level receive only occasional instruction or assistance as new or unusual situations arise and are fully aware of the operating procedures and policies of the work unit.

This class is distinguished from the Senior Mechanical Maintenance Technician in that the latter performs the more complex work assigned to the series and/or provides technical and functional direction over lower level staff.

Employees in this classification are subject to on-call, which may include rotating-duty schedule, weekends and 24-hour emergency call out with little or no notice.

The ideal candidate possesses two (2) years of experience (Technician I) or four (4) years of progressively responsible experience (Technician II) in the installation, maintenance, and repair of mechanical equipment, systems and components used in water, reclaimed water, or wastewater treatment facilities; or for Technician II – two (2) years as a Mechanical Maintenance Technician I with the District.

SUPERVISION RECEIVED AND EXERCISED

Receives immediate (Mechanical Maintenance Technician I) to general (Mechanical Maintenance Technician II) supervision from the Mechanical Maintenance Supervisor. Exercises no direct supervision over staff.

PLEASE NOTE: In-person, pre-employment testing is part of the selection process for this position.
