Lexington Advanced Auto Technician Job Description
So, what do auto technicians in Lexington do? As an advanced auto and tire technician at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you can expect your days to be filled with all things car-related, from test driving and repairing vehicles to explaining technical repairs to non-mechanical clients.
Advanced mechanics in Lexington have a number of responsibilities including troubleshooting and repairing cars to manufacturer guidelines by performing services such as fuel ignition and electrical repairs, as well as brake and hydraulic fixes. Advanced mechanics also mentor their less experienced teammates, overseeing them as they perform everyday services like battery checks and oil changes.

Required Qualifications for Lexington Advanced Mechanics
Wondering how to make your Lexington advanced auto technician job application stand out? You must have five or more years of experience working on cars and proof of completion of a Vocational-Technical program in the automotive field. A valid auto driver’s license along with the ability to test drive clients’ cars is a must-have. You will also need excellent reading, writing, math, and customer service skills. An ideal candidate is also A.S.E. certified in at least five of A1-A8 (L1 counts toward the five, too). If you are not, you will have a maximum of two years from the date of your employment to comply with this requirement. If Kentucky calls for extra certifications, you must also obtain and maintain those. Last but not least, you must have the ability (and patience) to train apprentice mechanics and advise non-mechanical individuals on automotive diagnostics and complex services.
