This is 2021 - during a worldwide pandemic, unemployment is at a high, the government is encouraging the public to take unemployment and so many of them are getting the extra covid cash on top of the normal unemployment pay. This makes hiring good mechanics, knowledgeable mechanics so hard. We would love to give a lube tech the opportunity for employment but we are a specialty shop. We specialize in transmission repairs, transmission rebuilds, transmission diagnostics. We need mechanics that know a thing or two about transmissions, that have some knowledge, that are willing to listen to direction, instructions, and to be detail-oriented with removing and replacing these massive, so important, parts of the vehicle.
We have had a few team members since the pandemic, through the pandemic, and now we are giving second chances. We believe in second chances as we know what it is like to forgive and we know how to learn from our fallacies. We have had our fair share of faults ourselves. Especially in a world that is so quick to toss away people and things.
We have a team member that we think deserves a second chance. Big dealerships, big corporations would not give this team member a second look once they looked at their resume. Now, don't get us wrong, we did our due diligence, but this team member really knows their way around a vehicle, has the proper tools in their secondhand tool chest (like all of our tools chests that are second hand) and they listen very intently to their superiors.
Does everyone deserve a second chance, maybe not, but like a classic car overlooked, or undersized rookie, you can find a real gem that others overlooked. We are excited to add a "classic car”, a comeback kid, to our team, and see their value in a disposable society. Everyone loves a comeback story, so follow along for ours.
