Distribution Maintenance Technician


Our Maintenance Technicians keep the equipment within our 8 million square feet of warehouse space in running order, including our highly-automated systems.

How to Apply


Maintenance Technicians perform systematic preventive maintenance that incorporates industry best practices. They also provide quick, effective repairs when possible. Without our Maintenance Technicians, Publix Distribution Centers couldn't receive, store, and ship cases of product to our stores every day!

We continually have openings for Maintenance Technicians in our high velocity, low velocity, dairy/boxed meat, produce, and frozen food warehouse facilities. These Distribution facilities are located in the Atlanta area and in seven Florida locations—Boynton Beach, Deerfield Beach, Jacksonville, Lakeland, Miami, Orlando, and Sarasota. Starting pay rates depend on a technician's knowledge and experience. Future pay increases are based on performance.

Qualifications we look for

The required qualifications differ depending on the specific equipment in each facility. They also differ depending on the level of responsibility for a particular position. We prefer to hire individuals who have work experience in a highly-automated plant. In general, however, our Maintenance Technicians must be:

  • proficient in electro mechanics, pneumatics, and hydraulics
  • able to read and interpret schematics and drawings
  • experienced in PLC controllers and process instrumentation
  • practiced in safe work habits
  • team players with obvious enthusiasm, initiative, and pride in work well done, and
  • self-starters dedicated to continual quality improvement
