1: Was Mechanics a job you’ve wanted from the start, and if not, what was your dream job?
Yes, it was


2:What influenced you to become a mechanics?
As kids our life revolved around car and making them go faster.



3: How long have you been a mechanics?
about 50 years from when I started training and learning the trade.


4: How long did it take you to get classified as a class A mechanic?
Those are not classifications normally used in the US. We have a voluntary certification program called A.S.E


5: Where do you currently work?
in a repair shop


6: What would your dream work location be? Why?
In my recliner



7: how many different places have you worked as a mechanic?
Too many to count


8: What is your favorite Part of mechanics or the part that you enjoy the most?
Being able to systematically troubleshoot hard to resolve problems


9: What are some Types of things you need to learn while taking your trade in mechanics?
Training in new technology and constant changes is never ending. Modern cars are computer controlled with new advancements/technology every year.



10: Are there any tips or words of advice you could give me before I take my trade in mechanics, or some things I should expect or know?
It's a highly technical job now that requires a very large investment in tools and equipment that never stops. If you become one of the truly talented people in this field, you will never be without a job but it will take a toll on your body over the years.


11: What has been your experience with the following?

Are you unionized?
No

Are you covered for workers compensation?
Yes

Are accidents a major concern with mechanics (what was the worst that you have experienced or seen?).
Yes, it's a very big concern because you are constantly working under cars and using some dangerous equipment.
