Fleet Technician - Experienced (CDL)

Company: Frito-Lay North America
Location: Topeka
Posted on: October 15, 2020

Job Description:

Frito-Lay Fleet Technicians are essential to our team because they work on our fleet vehicles and keep our drivers safe. Are you looking for a job at a company that rewards the mechanically gifted? Although you will start out working for Frito-Lay, this job can open the door to career opportunities with our parent company, PepsiCo.

We are proud to offer you a generous starting salary which ramps up quickly for top performers. We also offer unbeatable benefits including health insurance, dental and vision, retirement savings benefits including 401(k) with company contribution, vacation days and much more.

You may already be familiar with what this position entails. You will help us maintain and repair our vehicles, diagnose mechanical issues, manage parts inventory, and charge parts and labor to work orders. We asked our Fleet Technicians what else we should let you know about working here, and this is what the team had to say about frequent tasks you can expect to perform:

You will use your extensive knowledge to assist entry-level mechanics with difficult repairs.

Return vehicles to the traffic center (CDL required).

You will build relationships with vendors when getting estimates for parts or labor.

You will interact with a variety of Frito-Lay drivers, from professional truck drivers to salespeople.

This is a physical job which often involves working in tight spaces under vehicles.

This is an experienced position that requires a CDL. Here are our minimum requirements for you to consider prior to filling out our application:

You are at least 21 years of age or older

You may be required to work on weekends, holidays as well as off shift

You have a valid CDL

Your driver's license has not been suspended or revoked in connection with a moving violation within the past three (3) years

You can lift 50 pounds or more with or without a reasonable accommodation

You are able to climb, bend, reach, stoop, kneel, and stretch for extended periods with or without a reasonable accommodation

You have the ability to work in tight spaces for extended periods with or without a reasonable accommodation

You will be required to work on/under trucks for an entire shift (8 to 12 hours) with or without a reasonable accommodation

Given the fact that we offer high wages and phenomenal benefits, you might be wondering what will give you an edge when you apply to Frito-Lay. Here is an idea of the characteristics our managers look for:

Safety-Focused: Drivers are counting on your focus on safety which means doing the job correctly and not taking shortcuts.

Flexibility: Like all Frito-Lay team members, your work on weekends and holidays helps us maintain our industry dominance. We place a high premium on teamwork.

Attention to Detail: We want to avoid breakdowns and stranded drivers. Your approach to preventative maintenance should be diligent, even meticulous, when it comes to maintaining our fleet.

Initiative : You are in the field by yourself much of the time. Our best people would put it this way: we need folks who can show up and work until the job is done.

Leadership: You will manage situations that might involve providing instructions to coworkers in the spirit of safety, efficiency, and cooperation. Frito-Lay leaders will trust you to make good decisions.

Tech Savvy: Technology will enable you to quickly diagnose mechanical problems, and you will also draw upon your computer skills when installing electronic logging devices such as tablets and dashboard computers.

Teamwork : It s important that you work well with others because you will regularly interact with our Regional Drivers, vendors and other team members.

Does this sound like you?

We hope that you are now envisioning yourself as the newest addition to our diverse team. There is nothing sweeter than a thankful driver who is back out on the road delivering quality snacks to our customers as a direct result of your personal expertise and work ethic.
