Michael "Mike"’s Answer

In addition to what Fred has stated, facilities maintenance persons provide customer service and support to the occupants of the facilities to which they are assigned.
You can pick a specific trade (electrician, HVAC technician, plumber, welder, etc.), or a more general maintenance technician. Typically specializing in a specific trade will result in a higher pay scale, but limit your duties to those within the field. Remaining more of a generalist will provide a wider range of duties, but frequently at a lower rate of pay.

Teresa’s Answer

Facilities management probably varies drastically depending on the type of business/facility. The company I work for has business offices as well as retail stores. The expectation to have a very clean, well maintained facility. Daily cleaning is completed by an outside cleaning company which includes dusting, emptying trash, and vacuuming floor as well as cleaning the bathrooms completely. All light bulbs must be working, ceiling tiles must be free of stains, any water leaks are fixed immediately then any damage caused from the leak is also repaired as part of the initial repair order as well. The floors are also washed/buffed on a quarterly basis. Windows are washed monthly during the warmer months.
