Job Description:

Become a Community Transit Journey Mechanic Start a career where you help service the vehicles that serve our communities every day. If you're looking for a job where you can build new skills, work with new tech, and enjoy great benefits and opportunities, learn how Community Transit may be the right place for you. What makes Community Transit different? Stability There has never been a more exciting time to work in the transit industry. Community Transit offers training and career growth in an industry that needs strong and skilled leaders. As light rail expands to our region and as our communities continue to grow, the demand for our services - and mechanics to keep them running - will continue to grow. Future investments in more sustainable transportation and green technology will also open up new opportunities for mechanics. Retirement pension Even if you love your job, you'll probably want to retire from it someday. Community Transit is a Washington State Public Employees Retirement System (PERS) employer, and our exceptional retirement benefits make it easy. A pension is a type of retirement plan that provides monthly income after you retire from your position. Many people consider pensions to be one of the most reliable ways to plan for retirement, as pension funds are not impacted by the stock market or other economic forces. With a career at Community Transit, your future is secure. Quality of work Taking care of our employees is key to keeping things running like a well-oiled machine. We know that well-cared for engines - and people - won't burn out. We emphasize quality work over quotas. We're looking for life-long learners and problem-solvers who take pride in their work. Our mechanics enjoy a clean and well-maintained facility where quality of work, safety, and injury prevention are prioritized. Variety No two days are the same as a mechanic at Community Transit. You won't find assembly lines or monotony in our shops. Our mechanics enjoy working on a variety of vehicles, with various tools and tech, and each day brings a new challenge. Investments in new vehicles and green technology will continue to add to the variety of skills our mechanics can grow while working here. Advanced Technology There's no crawling under dirty engines in a cold and dingy shop at our facilities. Our mechanics work with the most cutting-edge tools in the transit industry in our spacious, heated, and well-lit shop that includes lifts and the ability to easily steam clean vehicles before service. We invest in your training with two full-time trainers dedicated to providing continuing education to mechanics including original equipment manufacturer's (OEM) training. $5000 Sign-on bonus We've made starting a new career even easier with a sign-on bonus for new mechanics.
