Job Description for Tire Technician
Tire technicians work in garages and for mechanics, helping to inspect, repair, and replace tires. For some shops, tire technicians also must be willing and able to operate roadside service vehicles (typically a pickup truck not requiring a commercial driver's license) and assist stranded motorists in need of assistance.Read More...
Normally the bulk of a tire technician's job takes place in a dedicated garage, usually run by a car dealer or larger tire manufacturing company. The tire technician inspects and assesses the damage to tires and determines if they are repairable or require replacement. The technician then performs any repairs that can be safely made or matches the tire to the specifications of the car model and other tires on the vehicle for replacement.
Because the decision to repair or replace a tire can seem subjective to a customer (although from the point of view of the shop, there are fairly definitive rules to cover liability concerns), the tire technician should be able to provide an estimate of work to be done and show the reason for the decision prior to performing the work. The technician must work efficiently and safely while keeping the vehicle neat and clean. The workspace used by the technician must also be maintained in good working order and kept neat.
To work as a tire technician, typically a person must have a high school diploma or equivalent. While this position may be entry level for those looking to make a career as an auto mechanic and have vocational training in the field, for others it may be necessary to gain practical experience in a shop at lower levels first. A tire technician typically works during regular business hours, but for shops offering roadside assistance, a person may be required to be “on call” for specified times during the week as well.
