Job Description



Fleet Serve is a small business based in Manhattan, KS that provides on-site preventative maintenance and repair to commercial fleets from Topeka to Salina. We primarily perform maintenance such as inspections and preventative maintenance services, as well as repairs such as brakes, lighting, suspension, and minor engine repairs. The most common vehicles worked on will be gas engine pickup trucks (GM) and medium duty diesel straight trucks (KW, Freightliner). We do NOT do highway road calls and we do NOT change tires. We have a small customer base and only provide work for them. All work is performed in the customer's truck yard using service trucks.


We are looking to hire a technician to help with general workload. You will be provided and assigned to a loaded service truck. Job duties will primarily involve oil changes, inspections, and general repairs. You will:

-Drive to and from the customer's truck yard in your service truck

-Complete the work assigned

-Interact with customer's dispatchers, drivers, managers, and parts people

-Collect parts from parts stores as needed

-Prepare your service truck for the next day's work by loading parts and equipment as needed

-Clean and maintain your service truck

-Occasional shop work including welding, organizing, cleaning, and other miscellaneous tasks are available if time permits


We are looking to a hire an entry level technician with a moderate amount of mechanical experience and at least an entry level amount of knowledge of diesel engines and/or air brakes. The ideal candidate for this position has worked in an auto repair shop at an entry level and is looking to take a step up. An ideal candidate may have also grown up on a family farm repairing and maintaining tractors and farm equipment, or graduated from an automotive program. We will provide on the job training and help you to do your best.


Tools are provided. Seriously, all tools are provided- from basic hand tools to electric tools like impact drivers and grease guns. If you need a tool we will purchase it. There is nobody that offers this, we have always wanted to change that. You are welcome to use your own tools if you have them, but each truck has a full set of tools assigned to it that you may use.


Workload varies from week to month to season. Typically, 20-40 hours a week can be expected. Expect hours to increase after time- Fleet Serve is growing at an exponential rate. Employees are able to choose with some flexibility the hours that work for them. Because we primarily work on commercial vehicles, many times they are out working during normal business hours. Morning work is available and possible, however it is significantly easier to schedule in the afternoons and on weekends. An afternoon schedule is ideal along with a Saturday or Sunday morning occasionally when needed. Students with odd class schedules can usually be accommodate if they are willing!


All work is performed outside. Work is not performed on days where the weather does not safely allow it. This can at times be a physically demanding job. You must be able to physically fit under a pickup truck and change the oil without raising it off the ground. You must be able to occasionally lift 50-110lbs. You must have a valid US driver's license and pass a drug test.


-Compensation is hourly wage + comission.

-Starting pay is $18.00/hr with an automatic 5% comission on the profits of all work you complete. Higher starting wages are negotiable with experience.
