Manley gave us a quick rundown of the job opening located in Sherman, Texas, saying that the Industrial Maintenance Technician usually works Monday to Friday, 5 a.m. to 5 p.m., or 5 p.m. to 5 a.m. There is also a weekend shift available, and no travel is required. He’s looking for someone with one to three years of work experience, but will consider relevant education such as a certificate of completion of an industrial maintenance program in lieu of on the job experience.

While Presco is a small company with roughly 200 employees, it’s been expanding in recent years and is focused now more than ever on aggressive growth in the future.

“Troubleshooting is key a component, and that’s a skill people in our maintenance department have to have,” Manley said.

The right candidate not only has a technical understanding of mechanical equipment and electrical controls, but also a good sense of customer service and fits into the company culture. And when it comes to working with other departments, Manley said everyone pitches in and helps.

“There’s all kinds of collaboration that’s required to make everything come together,” he said.

Manley also mentioned the partnership Presco has with nearby Grayson College to provide technical training to both rookie and seasoned employees alike. Presco will pay the tuition and time on the clock for its team members to learn new skills.
