Actively Looking for Technician jobs within 20 miles of Fredericksburg, Virginia.
I am a technician to work with, not around. I like to be busy and I don't like to sit around during a workday. My ideal day is a steady stream of work (any kind) from beginning to end. Down time is spent cleaning the shop or helping other techs.
Tools and Equipment
Experienced with Hunter-branded brake lathe, alignment, and tire mounting machines.
Experienced with A/C recovery/flush machines, brake and power steering flush machines (air-powered), and transmission fluid exchange/flush machines.
Experienced with transmission and engine jacks and cradles.
Experienced with MAPP and Oxy/Acetyline torches for heating or cutting.
Comfortable with scissor, 2-post air-powered in-floor, and 2-post aboveground electric lifts. Not thrilled about single-post center lifts but willing and able to competently use.
I have all the typical service tools and a few drawers of special tools (e.g. VW triple square bits, E-Torx sockets, etc). Willing to obtain anything necessary.
Sold passenger vehicle parts to shops and the public.
Student - Associate's Applied Science Degree - Automotive Technology
Graduated with honors, 3.8 GPA.
Course of Study
Was apparently "the only guy we've seen" in 20 years to drive a vehicle into Engines II, remove, strip, overhaul, rebuild and reinstall the engine, and successfully drive it away in one semester. It's still one of our daily drivers today (a 1.9L turbo Volvo v40).
