Diesel Mechanic in Denton:
After being here for over 2 years I have found out that most employee’s hate there job here because of very low pay, terrible retirement fund, horrible insurance, and unfair holiday vacation between what they offer their shops vs. What Corp. Takes off.

"The deisel mechanic."
Diesel Mechanic:
Pros: I like that we are always busy. My company allows us to work close to 60 hours a week. What I enjoy most are my coworkers. I like the group of people I work around everyday.
Cons: This job can really wear on your body. I'm 22 and my the end of the work day I feel 50. The work conditions can be rough too. The shop is outside so if it's a cold day I'll be cold all day. If it's a hot day then I'll be hot. It's also very easy to get stressed. At most times I'm the only mechanic so work can pile up. I don't feel like I get paid adequately for all that I do.
