Distribution technicians deliver messages, documents, packages, and other items between offices or departments within an establishment. They observe, receive, and otherwise obtain information from all relevant sources. They then record that information in written or electronic/magnetic form. They must also develop constructive and cooperative working relationships with others. Distribution technicians earn a median sum of $29,000 annually or $14 per hour.
Distribution technicians are responsible for demonstrating a solid commitment to all aspects of safety. They assist supervision in establishing work commitment dates and take steps to expedite delivery when necessary and practical. They also participate in interactions with internal/external customers on inquiries concerning construction and maintenance activities.
Distribution technicians typically hold a bachelor's or associate's degree in electrical engineering technology or a related field. In some instances, they may only hold a high school diploma or its equivalent. They are expected to have some years of work experience and adequate knowledge of the national electric safety code (NESC) and national electric code (NEC).
