Chicago, IL Advanced Mechanic Job Description
So, what does the day-to-day life of mechanics in Chicago look like? When you join the Firestone Complete Auto Care team as an advanced mechanic, you can expect your days to be filled with all things car-related, from road testing and fixing vehicles to explaining technical terms to less car-savvy clients.
Advanced mechanics in Chicago have a number of responsibilities including diagnosing and repairing vehicles to specifications by taking care of things like transmission repairs and alignments, as well as brake and hydraulic fixes. Additionally, advanced technicians mentor their less experienced teammates, assisting them with hands-on tasks such as battery checks and oil changes. Most importantly, you’ll help support Firestone Complete Auto Care’s brand promise: to deliver vehicles that are fixed right, priced right, right on time.
Required Qualifications for Chicago Advanced Mechanics
Wondering how to make your Chicago advanced auto technician job application stand out? You must have five or more years of experience working on cars and have completed an automotive Vocational-Technical program. Having a valid driver’s license at all times, combined with the ability to perform road tests on customer vehicles is required. You will also need excellent reading, writing, math, and interpersonal abilities. An outstanding application will also show you’re A.S.E. certified in at least five of A1-A8 (L1 counts, too). Don’t have these qualifications… yet? No worries, you’ll have up to two years from the date of your employment to comply. If Illinois calls for extra certifications, you’ll be expected to get those, too. Lastly, you should be able (and patient enough) to mentor your less experienced teammates and advise non-technical customers about automotive diagnostics and complex services.
