Hire an Elevator Mechanic

 

As the job title implies, elevator mechanics repair elevators, as well as escalators, chair lifts, and moving walkways. Elevator mechanics install, repair, and maintain these structures to make them safe and ready for use. 

 

The work of elevator mechanics is physically demanding. It entails working in tight spaces, standing for extended periods of time, and lifting heavy equipment. Not to mention, elevator mechanics are exposed to heights in elevator shafts. Because of the nature of work, falls, electrical shock, and muscle strains are possible. The role requires skill, patience, and dedication to get the job done safely. 

 

Elevator mechanics work with building equipment contractors, offices, schools, and other buildings in a full-time capacity. They work after office hours, evenings, on weekends, and on holidays. Because elevator mechanics conduct emergency repairs, they can be called to work anytime. 

 

For hiring managers, looking for candidates for elevator mechanics starts with defining the specific needs of the hiring company. Are they looking to hire for a specific area or location? Is the position full-time or part-time? Is previous work experience required for elevator mechanics? Gaining clarity in these areas will help hiring managers in making an accurate job description. 

 

Aside from the list of responsibilities and requirements, think about what would set your job description apart from other similar jobs. What will make candidates gravitate towards your job listing? Let them know some unique information about the hiring company. How many elevators, escalators, or moving walkways does the building have? Is there an opportunity for career training and career advancement? The more specific details included, the more likely that your ideal candidate will apply.

 

Responsibilities of an Elevator Mechanic

 

Elevator mechanics take care of the installation, repair, and maintenance of elevators, escalators, and walkways. For repairs, elevator mechanics identify the point of malfunction in the motor, switch, brakes, and control system using test equipment and interpret the findings. They disassemble the units, clean, fix, or replace them as necessary. 

 

Elevator mechanics make sure that elevators are safe and ready for use anytime by carrying out routine safety checks and inspections. They also oil and grease parts to lessen friction as well as inspect wirings, control panels, doors, and alignment. Cleaning elevator pits and performing power consumption tests to detect overload are additional responsibilities of elevator mechanics. 

 

Lastly, elevator mechanics maintain a record of the repairs and inspection details for reference. They wear personal protective equipment and uphold safety standards and codes at all times. 

 

Skills and Qualifications of an Elevator Mechanic

 

A high school diploma or GED is required for the role. Depending on state requirements, candidates may be required to hold a mechanical certification and license. In-depth knowledge of systems, tools, and equipment of the trade is necessary as well as the ability to read blueprints. The ideal candidate should be physically fit to lift and carry 50 pounds., work in cramped spaces, stand for extended periods, and be unafraid of heights. Lastly, candidates must have excellent attention to detail and the ability to follow written and verbal instructions well.
