We'll look to you to be flexible in your schedule. A night shift could be any 8-hour period between 5 PM and 5 AM. Once you are through training, we'll give you a set schedule of five days a week. That may include weekends, and the schedule may change.

You'll need to live in Orange County, Riverside, San Bernardino, Ventura, or Los Angeles. We'll assign you to stations that are in the general area of your home, although you'll need to be willing to drive anywhere in this region as needed.


You will inspect, maintain and repair the fueling equipment at your assigned stations, and ensure each station has an esthetically pleasing appearance. You will travel from site to site doing equipment and control maintenance and creating positive customer relations that promote Clean Energy. Typically you will travel to multiple stations each day, making sure safety interlocks for shut-down systems are working properly or automatically rebuilding compressors after 5000 hours of use.

You'll get to know each customer, checking in upon arrival, and building a line of open communication. These will be your stations to monitor and you will take responsibility for their overall care. While the lion's share will involve electrical and mechanical maintenance, you might meet with a phone company technician to repair or install a line, or take time to paint or clean the site. Some visits will be short, while others will take longer; you might for example, have to rebuild a compressor. Quick question for you - click here

You will have a handheld computer with GPS and scanner to chart your progress. It begins at departure at the beginning of your shift (less a commute time calculation) and is scanned at each destination. In addition to your individual duties, you might be called to help another Field Service Technician or find that you cover a greater distance when on call.

Specifically you will:

* Make periodic inspections of fueling locations and equipment to determine that proper and normal operating conditions are being met.

* Check and record operational data such as fluid levels, temperatures and pressures, compare to trends and have the ability to make corrections as needed.

* Install, remove and modify fueling locations and equipment.

* Maintain all fueling related equipment and structures in accordance with manufactures and Clean Energy guidelines.

* Clean and maintain fueling locations by picking up trash, emptying trash cans and dumpsters, hand cleaning and polishing fueling equipment, and painting and maintaining the canopy, lot, islands, and surrounding landscaping in and outside of enclosures.

* Repair, replace, and adjust malfunctioning equipment to restore proper operating condition specified in regulations and repair manuals.

* Inspect, maintain, adjust, repair or replace electrical equipment including electrical wiring, conduit, panels, switch gear, switches, gauges, transducers, solenoids, gas dryers, actuators, motors, meters and controls for safe and proper operating condition.

* Inspect, maintain, adjust, repair or replace mechanical equipment such as compressors pumps, engines, intercoolers, after coolers, heat exchangers, piping, tubing, fittings, filters, traps, gas dryers, fasteners, valves and actuators for safe and proper operating condition.

Note: this description is intended to give you a general overview of the position and is not an exhaustive listing of duties and responsibilities.


Strong training -- you bring strong learning acumen and a great attitude and we'll provide the tools you need to succeed. The first few weeks you'll shadow other senior Field Service Technicians who will show you the scope of the position and help you learn your assignment. Within the first few months, you'll also attend group on-line and classroom training sessions. Most of your training will be on-site with the actual equipment you will be maintaining. And of course, you'll have your teammates and supervisor who can also answer questions as you are becoming acclimated.
