How much??

Happy New Year to all.
I have been proposed a part time job as a maintenance mechanic in a big bakery in new york. The job is to make an inventory of the condition of machines,as mixers,slicers,sheeters etc.and, replace, motor belts, conveyor belts,chains and oil or grease them if they need. Preventing future breakdowns.(I am the mechanic of a company that sell used restaurant and bakery equipment and they pay me weekly.) Now I would like to know how to charge for this type of maintenance job. The manager says that I can go two to three days a week for a couple of hours and he would prefer to pay by hour. I would appreciate your help on this issue.

Two to three days a week for a couple hours doesn't sound like enough of a wage to pay living expenses. Personally, I would want a set amount as to exactly how many hours they're offering.

If that doesn't work out, Sarah Lee has a bakery in Grand Rapids, MI that has all the same equipment you are talking about, plus huge ovens and their maintenance guys do the same kind of PM work. It wouldn't hurt to contact them as they occasionally hire and prefer guys with experience.

As far as I know, the maintenance dept. hires full-time employees.

Keebler and Roskam are two other huge bakeries in Grand Rapids.
