What would I do?
As a Maintenance Manager, you're responsible for keeping trucks on the road. You'll often be responsible for developing and putting in place preventative maintenance programs that help to ensure that trucks, truck-tractors and trailers don't need to be taken out of service at the worst times.
Other responsibilities include creating and sticking to annual budgets, and managing the parts budget, as well as shop floor personnel. In addition, you'll have a say in decisions regarding the purchase, rental or lease of new equipment, and the sale of existing equipment.
