Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Bus or Truck Mechanic, Diesel Engine Specialist in Miami:
"Do not let employers under-value your abilities."
If you are a certified master mechanic do not be afraid to ask for what you are worth. This is a dirty job in most cases but a rewarding one. I have chosen public service at a reduced rate of pay and more stability but I have done very well in the private sector as well. Make sure you take advantage of any and all training opportunities made available to you through your employer or otherwise. If you are not moving forward, you are falling behind.
