Becoming an automotive technician can be scary. So many unknowns just like coming into any new job. Being a new automotive technician brings some challenges you may not have expected. What do you do about tools? How are you going to get trained? What the heck is flat rate? The list goes on and one. So today Rusty and I talk about some of the experience we have in this area. We also look at what we have seen new guys go through over the years. It’s safe to say, this is not a job for everyone.
