Service Technician

Kutztown, PA

Industry: Chemicals/Semicond./Textiles Job Number: 48027 Pay Rate: $60 - $70k
The position involves the setting and testing of capital equipment for the lead acid battery industry prior to dispatch, commissioning in our customer's overseas factories and the training of operator and maintenance personnel in the use of our equipment. You will set up, commission, and train people on the machinery that makes batteries.

Essential functions:
- Setting and testing of Engineering's full range of battery assembly equipment
- Final testing and assembly of machinery in preparation of inspection and dispatch
- Installation and commissioning of Company equipment
- Training of customer's staff at various levels at both the Company and customer's overseas premises
- Report writing and recommendations following all visits
- Liaise with Sales, Production and Design
- Extensive worldwide travel including weekend work and travel where required

Responsibilities are not limited to the above but include any other task within area of capability.

Compensation is a base salary that starts between $40 - $50k but is non-exempt. That means you earn overtime pay at the hourly equivalent of your salary multiplied by 1.5 for every hour of overtime. Average overtime amount can add $16 - $18k to your total yearly income. You also earn a bonus of $30/night every night you are away on company business. That can add approximately an additional $5k to your yearly income. Exact amount depends on exact amount of travel of course. All in all, first year gross income generally ranges between $60 - $70k.

The travel is about 50% overnight travel away from home. The rest of the time you are working at the Company facility or the facility of their largest customer which is only 10 minutes down the road. You will need a passport as some of the travel is overseas. In fact, you may spend a total of 6-10 weeks training in Gloucester, UK (Western England) but that training time is total and probably not at one stretch. A normal trip stateside ranges from 3-4 days to one week. Furthermore, every night away from home gains you a $30/night bonus. This a bonus, not a per diem. This is above and beyond your per diem and travel reimbursements for travel costs. It goes straight in your pocket. The company tries to keep nights away from home below 120/year, but you can volunteer for more and make more money in overtime, travel bonus, per diems, and others. International trips are probably 2-3 per year.

The GM served in the USMC, and is looking for someone who is responsible, presentable, with good mechanical skills and able to learn some electrical. A high level of professionalism and good communication skills as you will be the face of the company to both domestic and foreign clients, not to mention people at the home office in England. You will be mentored by the Senior Technician who came over from the UK and recently became a naturalized US citizen.
Great benefits! Enough travel to keep it very interesting but not a "never home" job either. Some international travel, plus training in England.
