Flexible, diverse, rewarding part-time job during university
Sherwood Park. Service technician (Current Employee) – Sherwood Park – 30 October 2014
Work included recommended and performing maintenance, warranty and general repairs on many types of vehicles. There was much to learn about the automotive trade including mechanical and electrical functions in cars, the use of various tools as well as troubleshooting and repair diagnosis.
The company is run by a conglomerate, and management generally follows the hands-off approach.
My coworkers included students, journeymen and apprentice mechanics, salesmen and administrative employees.
The most difficult part of the job is transitioning to a full-time role that suits my education, my experience and my career goals.
I very much enjoyed spending my days helping customers solve concerns, fixing problems and practicing one of my hobbies for a living.
Monthly employee events, flexibility, much to learn
Demanding work in difficult conditions, subpar benefits and few career opportunities
