As an employee of Roy Jorgensen Associates, Inc., you have accepted the responsibility to become a key member in a large team that works together towards two common goals, the financial success of the business and the personal satisfaction of building a rewarding career.

The KPI's below show the main responsibilities to focus on for this position. Within each of these areas you may be given specific and measurable KPI's by your Supervisor.

  5. Initiative

This position is the start of your career at Jorgensen. You will be offered the training, instruction and experience needed to develop your skills and be considered for increasing levels of responsibility.

As new skills are learned, you will be given the opportunity to work on new activities expanding your knowledge and having the chance for promotion to a Maintenance Technician II.


One of the most important parts of our job everyday is the quality of the work we perform. Jorgensen has built the business on providing our clients with the highest quality work. As an entry level maintenance technician, you are expected to perform your work to the best of your abilities everyday. You should take your time and if you have a question about how something should be done, you should ask your Crew Leader or Supervisor for direction. It is expected that you are capable of performing your work properly and as instructed. Jorgensen expects the work to be completed right the first time and the Technician should take pride in his work.


In order to keep our work program on schedule, it is important that all Jorgensen employees show up for work regularly and on-time. Although this position is an entry level labor assignment, the activities performed are very important to the success of the company and the safety of the traveling public.

You will be expected to work at a productive level for the entire work shift and at the level of your co-workers. All field work is a team effort and we expect all field technicians to contribute equally in their work. Those entry level technicians that consistently demonstrate a strong work ethic will most likely be promoted to a Maintenance Technician II, where they will have more training and learn new skills.


The company expects all employees to take the initiative to do the right things. We expect that you will not wait to be told to do something but instead seek out instruction and new assignments.
