Mechanic Duties and Responsibilities at BR
Here’s an overview of what you’ll be expected to do as a mechanic with our team:
- Understand and follow established working procedures, and, when necessary, establish and communicate new procedures.
- Maintain a thorough understanding of the operating principles of the machinery we work with.
- Maintain our machinery in safe working condition while carefully watching for equipment problems and potential problems.
- Develop and use maintenance routines for keeping machinery in safe working order.
- Create and maintain accurate records of your work and the state of our equipment.
- Communicate consistently and effectively with other staff members to maintain a safe and efficient working environment.
- Maintain composure and control if and when unexpected or unusual situations arise.
At BR, our mechanics work one of two shifts (first or second) performing onsite and in-shop equipment repairs. We have an indoor, temperature-controlled, four-bay shop, as well as a wash bay and dedicated equipment/parts room.
Some of the types of equipment our asphalt paving crews use daily that you may be working on are pavers, rollers, and skid steers. On the excavating side of our business, you may be repairing dozers, back-hoes, or small dirt moving equipment. We also have graders, reclaimers and milling machines. Finally, we have our own fleet of quad axle dump trucks and lowboy semi-trailers.
BR prides itself on keeping our equipment running at top performance and our mechanics play a big part in this. We purchase equipment from reputable companies such as CAT, Weiler and Wirtgen.
During your shift, you’ll report to the shop foreman who will distribute work for the day. You’ll also work with shop helpers, who are responsible for keeping working areas clean, running parts, and performing other duties that allow our mechanics to work as efficiently and safely as possible.
Our Core Values at BR
As a mechanic with our team, you’ll be expected to live out our company’s core values every day. That means you’ll be aligning yourself with the following operational principles.

To ensure we maintain a positive company image, we expect all of our team members to respect one another because a respectful staff is a hallmark of a respectful company.
At BR, we expect all of our team members to objectively do the right thing — even when no one is looking. Working with integrity drives a high level of expectation and builds trust among our team, as well as with our clients and vendors.
Trust is a cornerstone of a reputable, successful company, and that’s the image we’ve worked diligently to build and maintain over the last 75+ years.
At BR, we work as a team, and that means we all share a bond — a commitment to one another and to our organization. Should you join our team, you’ll be expected to share in that commitment.
We truly believe that committed employees bring exceptional value to our organization because dedicated team members are supportive, productive, reliable, determined, and quality driven. If that sounds like you, you’ll fit right in.
When you work with us at BR, you’re working with a team that prioritizes doing everything to the best of our ability. We expect you to prioritize quality in everything you do as well.
