Are you a fix-it wizard? Do thrive on keeping stuff alive? Then you should seriously consider becoming our next great Facility Manager. The Facility Manager is a formidable force in the everyday function of Bowlero Corp, maintaining the technical integrity of the venue (and its equipment) on a day-to-day basis. What’s that mean exactly...? Well, essentially, you help keep things running smoothly—ensuring that our pinsetters/pinspotters, automatic scoring machines, lanes, and other facility equipment operate at peak efficiency. This requires a person with a certain skill set—both the ability to fix and to forecast—since our Facility Managers usually assist our GMs in the planning and budgeting that’s involved with all center repairs and upgrades.
Facility Managers serve as guardians for their venues—constantly monitoring and suggesting improvements to the facility and its equipment in an effort to improve performance and reduce costs. The Facility Manager routinely monitors and maintains the venue’s roof, as well as its HVAC, plumbing, electrical, life/safety systems, and other building systems. In the event that the venue’s equipment does malfunction, it’s up to the Facility Manager to identify the problem(s), suggest repairs to/replacements for the equipment, and solicit final approvals from General Managers or District Managers.
While they do perform maintenance and repair work, Facility Managers are also responsible for administrative operations such as scheduling staff, ensuring compliance with appropriate laws and policies (including OSHA safety practices/procedures), and obtaining bids for both routine maintenance and emergency repairs. In addition to these key tasks, Facility Managers also work to improve and update the existing inventory system and ensure that our inventory is kept current.
Beyond being our go-to “Fix-It” experts, our Facility Managers also serve as mentors to our B- and C-Mechanics, assisting the GMs in their hiring and training these mechanics in safety procedures and operating standards related to bowling equipment, building maintenance, and other preventative maintenance programs.
What makes a great Facility Manager? Usually at least 2 years of related experience and the kind of personality that has no problem with working varying shifts (including weekends and holidays) or extended workdays. Great Facility Managers are also great communicators—individuals who are respectful of all and who embody superior customer service in their everyday approach to the work.
