Good job to get started in the automotive maintenance field. Useful for improving your knowledge of cars and trucks and basic maintenance and repair operations. Quality of management personnel varies wildly by location. The hardest part of the job is dealing with challenging weather while working on vehicles. Engine compartments become unbearably hot during the summer months and simply maintenance operations can get cold, wet and messy during the winter. The best part of this job is the opportunity to learn new skills that remain useful later.
