Careers in Focus: Facilities Management

Over the past 3 decades, Ray Turbessi of Dickson City has built a career and a life at Allied Services. In that time, he’s made the most of his time, talents, and the support offered by Allied Services to climb the corporate ladder and enjoy success and a rewarding career.

Ray joined Allied Services at the age of 20. While working as a housekeeper, he utilized the tuition assistance program at Allied Services to take electrical classes. From there, he went on to become a utility employee. Once again, Ray went back to school with the financial support of Allied Services. His HVAC training and certification, and his work ethic saw Ray work his way up from mechanic, to construction mechanic, and then senior mechanic.

Most recently, Ray completed a Business Management certificate at Penn State – with, you guessed it, tuition assistance from Allied Services – and earned his current title of Facilities Manager at Allied Services Skilled Nursing Center in Scranton.

Throughout his career, Ray has worked at many of the 50 or more Allied Services locations throughout Northeast and Central Pennsylvania. He has been at the Skilled Nursing Center in Scranton for the past 10 years. Despite the challenges of providing support for such a large facility, Ray enjoys the environment and the team he works with.

“I enjoy working here. This is where my friends are."

Allied Services is currently hiring maintenance mechanics, plant operating technicians, and an Assistant Director of Facility Services. Explore job opportunities.
