Automotive Technician Advice

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

Automotive Technician in Edmonton:
Work your ass off and don't lip off the journeyman.

Automotive Technician in Kelowna:
"Automotive Technician advice from one who knows."
This career path may make you lose your passion for Cars/Trucks. Don't assume that you will get paid what you expect. Expect to get dirty. Expect to get hurt. Think about all of the toxic fumes and chemicals you will be exposed to. Think about noise. When I was starting out, the noise didn't bother me. Even with hearing protection, the noise is very distracting and annoying. Tools and tool boxes are incredibly expensive. This fact will definitely take $500-$2000 + off of your yearly income.
