I began my first job this week as an Automotive Technician at a local Ford Dealership. It has been an incredible week. In a recent post I shared that my dealership seems to support my professional goals. Well, everyday that I have been there so far, this idea has been reinforced.
It was a little awkward on my second day as I was called in front of the group and introduced formally to my shop. Of course, those scary words came out the meeting leads mouth, “Tell us about yourself.”
Today, in front of the group, my boss told me to make sure inspections were being carried out. So with four people on my team, we should be able to cover four basic systems: Brakes, Suspension, Exhaust/Fuel, as long as everyone is willing to participate. Sometimes we are so busy that we have to break up into two teams to get the work out faster. I guess the person doing tire rotations could do the brakes and suspension inspections while the person doing oil changes could run the fuel/exhaust system inspections.
I performed my first recall repair today. 🙂 Maybe tomorrow I will do a re-program.
