Actively Looking for Service Advisor/Technician jobs within 50 miles of Livingston, California.
I am a 30 year old smog technician who has spent most of my life working in automotive. With 14 year experience, yes I started my first job at a ripe 15 years old, in diagnosis and repair I believe I've found the right balance between speed and skill to be truly efficient. I have a strong background in electrical and emissions(MIL and tailpipe) diagnosis, but also very adept at driveability and general repairs. I can mount and balance tires and have some practice with alignments. I'm looking for a shop with room to grow into a management position, and that can help me learn a new skill.
I have owned a shop in the past so you'll also be getting a versatile tech you can have in the office or outside turning wrenches. I am familiar with Mitchell Manager Program, AllData, and even old fashioned hand written invoices(my favorite). Also capable of running daily profit reports, filing, keeping books, and talking to customers, sometimes all at once.
Tools and Equipment
All basic hand tools
Older style Modis
Mostly electrical power tools
I believe a shop should have the tools it needs to correctly perform the jobs it sells.
