Maintenance Mechanic Supervisor (Former Employee) – New York, NY – March 17, 2015
My day always began with overall observation of building and building systems, making notes of any issues, coming back to office, check and fill up log books for boilers and standpipe system, review all work orders made from yesterday, made priorities, and give some orders to my porters, some of work orders I was doing myself, Check my porters clock-in and clock-out in payroll program, order necessary supplies through the phone or online, doing inventories, if I cannot solve the problem, I reported it to my supervisor and he called trade people. I learned how to deal with different kind of problems and how to do it more efficient and time safe way. Mostly, the management was so-so, because they didn't have experience in the field of facilities management, and it was hardest part of my job. Talking about my porters, I like to work in team and it was very good team of co-workers. We helped each other a lot. The most enjoyable part was recognizing, that tenants, that we were working for appreciated our job.
Work for good people with good people
Luck of professionalism and etiquette in management
