Hire a Utility Worker

 

Many people contribute to the success of a business. Among those who work tirelessly behind the scenes are utility workers. They are hardworking men and women who perform various tasks for the maintenance of an office indoor and outdoor environment. While specific duties and responsibilities may vary from one business establishment to another, the core of their work is the safety and cleanliness of the business facilities. 

 

Utility workers work in a variety of industries on a part-time or full-time arrangement. The position of utility worker is typically an entry-level position in the maintenance space. Because the work involves being on their feet for extended periods and doing manual work, utility workers must be in good physical condition. 

 

Hiring utility workers begins with creating a job description. Not to be underestimated as a mere list of job specifics, a job description is a useful tool to attract ideal job seekers and applications. Hiring managers can also include information on company history, goals, and available benefits for utility workers. Think as a job seeker would and draft the job description with a job seeker’s point of view in mind. Aside from posting job announcements online on hiring websites, social media platforms, and online communities, another reliable way of gaining candidate leads is by employee referrals. 

 

Responsibilities of a Utility Worker

 

Utility workers are responsible for cleaning and maintaining their assigned areas. They may be assigned in a specific area like a general office area, bathroom, or kitchen. If needed, they can also maintain office grounds and outdoor premises. Utility workers determine the appropriate cleaning agents and chemicals to prevent property damage. In handling hazardous agents or chemicals, utility workers are careful to follow safety standards and wear personal protective equipment as necessary. 

 

Utility workers ensure that all maintenance supplies and equipment are ready. They monitor inventory and order supplies. If assigned to outdoor areas, utility workers may trim shrubs, mow grass, and pull out weeds if needed. Additionally, utility workers can help perform minor repairs and troubleshoot broken equipment. If the equipment requires major repair or maintenance, the utility worker must inform the maintenance supervisor accordingly. Lastly, utility workers submit reports detailing their assigned areas and observations. 

 

Skills and Qualifications of a Utility Worker

 

There is no strict formal education requirement for utility workers. However, most employers prefer that candidates have a high school diploma or GED. Previous work experience as a utility worker is a plus. Candidates for the role must be knowledgeable of hand and power tools and other equipment. 

 

Utility workers work independently or collaborate with other team members. They also engage with supervisors and building administrators. As such, good listening, interpersonal, and communication skills are necessary for the job. Additionally, the ability to follow written and verbal instructions are essential. The ideal candidate for utility worker is reliable, honest, and with good time management skills. Lastly, candidates must have the physical strength and stamina to lift or carry heavy objects and stand for long periods.
