The locksmiths and I are on a split schedule. We work five days one week and four the next. We are also on call at varying times.
How is lock work scheduled?
We try to maintain the locks and hardware using pre-maintenance. I have set up schedules for servicing locks and door hardware to try to prevent problems from occurring when there are visitors in the museum. We cannot always catch a problem before it happens, but using communication and pre-maintenance, we have been able to limit the problems.
I work with all of the service and security personnel to have them notify me if there is the smallest hint of a problem. (As an example, during this interview, a maintenance person brought in a part that had come from a mortise lock.)
Does your employer provide an acceptable pay scale and benefits?
I am satisfied.
