We stand behind every scale we have manufactured since 1830. How many companies can say that? If getting the job done right the first time matters to you, and standing behind your work just means more, then we want to hear from you. Fairbanks Scales is seeking a dedicated Scale Technician to join our dynamic team.

About Us: For more than 190 years, Fairbanks Scales Inc. has been the innovator of manufacturing scales, weighing equipment, and technology. Though much has changed, we still lead the industry with the most reliable and accurate equipment available whether a business needs to weigh 2 pounds or 150,000 pounds.

Our scales are only as good as the proper installation and regular calibration by our network of highly trained Technicians. Businesses trust us to ensure their equipment is accurate, reliable, and compliant with standards. We take this responsibility seriously, and we're looking for others who will too.

About The Role: As a Scale Technician, you will be installing, calibrating, and repairing various types of scales and weighing systems. From bench scales to truck scales, you'll ensure the accuracy of instruments that businesses rely on to operate daily.

Your Key Responsibilities:

  • Installing, calibrating, servicing, and repairing various types of scales and weighing systems.
  • Documenting calibration and repair actions by completing inspection checklists and forms timely and accurate.
  • Provide excellent service while interacting with customers and teammates.

Ideal Candidates Will Have:

  • A high school diploma or equivalent is required; a certificate or 2-year degree in a technical field is a plus.
  • Strong mechanical and electrical aptitude.
  • 1-2 years of experience in maintenance, mechanical, industrial, electrical, or a similar field is a plus.
  • Strong problem-solving skills and attention to detail.
  • Willingness to learn and work well with others including teammates, sales managers, and customers to get the job done safely and accurately the first time.
  • Clean driving record and ability to obtain and maintain a Class B CDL.
  • Ability to work beyond the typical schedule of Monday through Friday for eight hours. Sometimes staying a little later to finish a job or occasionally being called for assistance on a weekend is required since our scales are critical for businesses to operate.
  • Above all, a safety mindset. Meaning that we are looking for those who take safety personally regardless of whether at work, at home, or behind the wheel, and are not afraid to speak up to protect themselves, co-workers, or customers.

What We Offer:

  • Competitive salary with a comprehensive benefits package including medical, dental, vision, accident, critical illness, and 401(k) with a company match.
  • We value the free time of our employees, but sometimes our technicians are needed after hours. Therefore, we offer various premiums for any after-hours work, even if only a quick phone call.
  • Opportunities for professional training to grow and develop your skills for years to come.
  • No day is the same. Our technicians work on different equipment and support businesses in every industry and environment.
  • Being valued. Whether in manufacturing, defense, transportation, or agriculture, the work our technicians perform is critical for every customer's operation. It doesn't take long to establish great relationships with our customers.
  • Self-motivation is required because the role of a trained Technician can be highly independent and flexible. Our technicians are spread throughout the country and are expected to be on time, complete their work safely and efficiently and move to the next job with little supervision. The freedom and independence afforded our technicians is the reward.
