Maintenance Mechanic

The Mechanic is responsible for preventative maintenance and repair of all machinery and equipment within the facility.

As a Full-Time team member, you would work at least 40 hours per week (on average) and overtime may be required. 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.

As a mechanic, you can expect to work on your feet through most of your shift near heavy machinery in a loud manufacturing environment. While we want everyone to feel comfortable, our ability to control the temperature is limited. In the Breakfast Department, large machinery such as ovens and extruders, can create warm working conditions which can further be impacted by seasons and the weather. In the Chewy Department, the temperature is cooler to maintain product viability.

Frequent tasks you could expect to perform:

· Responsible for performing lubrication, preventive maintenance inspections, and a variety of semi-skilled tasks in support of plant maintenance functions.

• Maintain a clean and safe work area. Safety is everyone's job.

· Assist operators with basic preventative maintenance on packaging machines such as cleaning or switching out knives and blades, pull-belts, tape machines or rollers, depending on the need

· Install plant equipment, service lines, and general building maintenance tasks

• Comply with Good Manufacturing Practices, such as frequent handwashing, hairnets, no jewelry, etc.

• Keep accurate records and comply with appropriate documentation processes.

• Troubleshoot commonplace problems and make operational adjustments.

As a mechanic, you are around all our products and the machinery that processes ingredients and packages them which means you should consider the potential allergens and sensitizers, such as dairy, peanuts, wheat, soy, and coconut.

• You are at least 18 years of age or older

You must be flexible to work overtime, weekends, and as needed based on maintenance needs.
