Why Technicians Want to Work for NMS
The best part about working for NMS is that we’re not overmanaged or pushed to get things done so quickly that we wind up having to fix equipment AGAIN because it wasn’t done right the first time. We can put the time in to do it right the first time. They trust us to do a good job instead of looking over our shoulders and second-guessing everything we do.
I like the amount of support I get from NMS – I’m really able to run the shop the way I want to but they provide all the parts and technology I need. I like having a set schedule and showing up every day to the same site – I’ve gotten to know the team here really well and I appreciate the respect I’m treated with.

Join Our Team
At National Maintenance Services, we provide comprehensive maintenance solutions to customers in 26 states across the country. Instead of assigning multiple technicians to serve companies spread out over a wide geographical area, we embed our tier 1 technicians on-site at a single company’s facility.
This distinctive model offers many benefits to our clients as well as our employees. By getting to know the ins and outs of a single operation, our maintenance technicians gain a holistic understanding of their clients’ needs. They can identify which pieces of equipment need the most attention and what types of maintenance are the most important. By gaining intimate knowledge of the company’s various types of material handling equipment, technicians can also suggest and even implement valuable updates to their systems.
Having autonomy over day-to-day maintenance tasks empowers our employees. It gives them the ability to make decisions and see the reward that comes with being proactive and engaged in their organization. Our technicians enjoy feeling like part of the NMS family while also being welcomed by the companies they report to every day. It’s for this reason that our technicians stick with us for the long haul.
The NMS name is becoming more recognizable as companies see the value in highly trained, embedded technicians assigned to their facilities. As our team grows, we’re always on the lookout for qualified candidates who want to join our team and help our clients protect the equipment that drives their successes.
