Just Launched: Orion's Field Service Careers Site

Wednesday, June 27, 2018

Field Service careers span many industries including manufacturing, high tech, energy, medical equipment and more. While job responsibilities vary by industry, those working in Field Service roles are typically responsible for installing, diagnosing, troubleshooting, repairing, and performing preventative maintenance on various types of equipment at customer locations.

Because Orion is constantly recruiting for careers in Field Service, we’ve recently launched a Field Service Careers site to serve as a resource for those interested in learning more and pursuing a career in this field. The site includes valuable insight into the requirements and benefits of Field Service positions, as well as companies that are hiring for these roles. While you’re browsing the site, make sure you check out our  “Careers in Field Service for Veterans” podcast featuring Todd Hecht, an Orion Recruiter specializing in Field Service roles.

Field Service careers require customer service skills, willingness to travel, as well as the ability to work independently. Ideal candidates will have strong electronic-mechanical aptitude from their time in the military, and experience related to the troubleshooting, maintenance, and repair of electronic and mechanical systems. A career in Field Service offers many benefits beyond the standard health insurance and 401k. Many of the companies we work with offer a company car or car allowance, a laptop, cell phone, and a company credit card. Field Service roles also allow you to work independently, meet a variety of people, and get paid to travel and gain travel miles or rewards for personal use.

Here are some of the most common types of positions within Field Service that we typically recruit for:

As a Field Service Technician, you will perform troubleshooting, maintenance and repair activities on customer equipment.

As a Field Service Specialist, you will provide professional service and support for customers by performing field service installation, startup, repairs and maintenance.

In a Field Service Engineer role, you will be responsible for quality machine installation and maintenance service of complex electro-mechanical systems; analytical troubleshooting of technical problems to component level; and performing complete installation, maintenance services, and technical reporting.

Field Service Representatives travel to facilities within a given territory/metro area/region and diagnose, troubleshoot, and perform basic repairs on customer equipment.

Orion works with some of the world’s leading companies that hire military talent for Field Service positions, including Siemens, Ingersoll Rand, Honeywell, Johnson Controls, GE, and Stryker. Check out our newly launched Field Service Careers website to learn more.
