An automotive service technician conducts a variety of duties from the basics, such as changing oil and filters, to conducting custom modifications. The type of work a technician performs depend largely on the type of shop in which they work; for example, a lube shop has different workflow than a mechanic’s shop specializing in converting vehicles to limousines. The compensation package of some automotive service technicians includes a commission component. This may mean that there is also a significant sales element to an automotive service technician’s job.
