Describe Your Locksmith Department

Postby JohnHubel » Sun Jan 08, 2017 2:20 am

Some departments only rekey locks. Some departments only address mechanical products such as locks, hinges, closers, etc., but do not address operators or other electrified products. Some address the total door opening. Others handle trades beyond locksmithing such as carpentry, electrical, or transportation. What are the limitations for your department?

I am the lone locksmith within the Facilities Department at Oneida Casino in Wisconsin. I only have 8 buildings to take care of. I cut and issue keys for all the doors, file cabinets, padlocks, etc. Re-key cores, repair/replace all door hardware, including power operators (with the assistance of an electrician if needed), maintain our Key Watcher system and locks & keys for table games and slot machines. Inventory and record keeping is critical. I work with our Surveillance Dept. on the handreaders and electric strikes for secure areas.

I do not do vehicle lock-outs as I am not here 24 hours. The security department handles that.

Customer service is the #1 priority so, if needed I will help out wherever needed. Such as shoveling and plowing snow (which I'll probably be doing today)
