The maintenance manager’s schedule varies from day to day but includes routine responsibilities including inspections, record keeping, and scheduling, training and assisting, researching and purchasing, and departmental leadership. The maintenance manager is involved in general management through our weekly management meeting, and often oversees and manages long term projects and policies related to construction and maintenance. He/She will be responsible for requesting, researching, and general overseeing quotes and quote changes for these projects. Much of the maintenance manager’s time is spent in the office and circulating about the nursery. The maintenance manager is on call for emergencies outside of normal business hours, and occasionally is required to travel off site.
January – March
Schedule may vary but, because of the lay off of other members of the maintenance staff, typically involves performing the majority of the maintenance related tasks. Often we are actively producing plants during this time, but at present it is difficult to predict how much or exactly when. When we are, the maintenance manager may work in the production department under the direction of a production team leader. The maintenance manager attends one trade show in January, and participates in weekly training lectures and seminars through the months of February and March. Typical hours: 8:00 – 5:00 Mon. Fri. On call as needed.
April – October
During April the plants begin to grow rapidly, we begin to ship a great deal, and our maintenance needs increase significantly. From April until November, the maintenance manager spends the majority of his or her time performing the typical functions as outlined above. Typical hours: 8:00 – 5:00 Mon. Fri. On call as needed.
November – December
During late fall, the plants stop growing, we stop shipping, and our maintenance needs are greatly reduced. At this time the maintenance manager spends much of his or her time working in the office doing personnel and administrative work, and may occasionally work in the production department under the supervision of a production team leader, producing plants. Typical hours: 8:00 – 5:00 Mon. Fri. On call as needed.
The maintenance manager directly supervises maintenance technician & maintenance teammates, as well as staff members from other departments who are working on special assignment in the maintenance department.

500, 1,280 and 2080 hours, thereafter season ending. Teammate sets own wage by performance. Appraisal score will be a percentage of top possible score and is multiplied by top wage to establish new wage (with each appraisal). Example: if appraisal score were 90% and top wage was $10.00 per hour, then the new wage would be (.90 times $10.00) = $9.00 per hour. NOTE: YOUR PAY DOES NOT DECREASE BASED ON SCORE. The same concept is applied to all jobs regardless of top wage or salary.
