Actively Looking for Technician jobs within 25 miles of Watsonville, California.
I’ve been in the automotive field since 1990 and plan to stay with it as long as possible. I consider myself a “B-Level” mechanic and strive to do my best at what I do. I’m no expert, but I try. A little older, a bit slower, and hopefully a little wiser, I know my way around a car and can take a challenge without complaint. My weaknesses?? Well… Honestly… Everyone has them. Mine are European cars, transmissions, alignments and in depth diagnostics. Why hire me over someone else?? I’d like to say I’ve accumulated good experience and have learned many useful skills that have enabled me to succeed in my job. If my qualifications and capabilities are not enough, I am very open to training and new ideas as needed. Preferably, I'd like to seek employment in the Santa Cruz through Monterey areas. I am not seeking employment as a "Smog Tech" or seeking to renew my smog certification at this time. A shop with serious, long term, goals is desired. Not trying to be too up front, but I am not looking to go "backwards" in wages and health insurance is a must. My ASE certifications are currently expired. Thank you for your time:-)
