Arvada Auto Center
Ever since I was a freshmen I wanted to be a mechanic and got signed up to a job shadow to at auto shop almost 3 blocks away from school. For the few hours I was there it seemed great to work in a auto shop so I felt it was right to say if they we're hiring. Sure enough I got the job! I had to start from the bottom and work my self to the top so I basically came after school for 3 hours everyday and Saturdays 8 hours. What I did was clean the shop all the time reorganize anything in the whole shop. This wasn't hard for me I wanted more work and more experience in the lube tech side. Like everyone else I started to learn from Oil changes to maintenance services, then got into tires, tune ups, how to ring out people, speak to costumers, after all that I started to do more Remove and replace parts. These are just some examples of types of jobs that had to get done. Right now I am a full time tech working or heavy line with diagnostic skills, now I replace engines, transmissions, suspension, breaks, drivetrain, a/c recharge, and almost anything now. I couldn't do this with out my mentors that worked with me that had years of experiences! This shop has been here for 20 years and it's number #1 rating in Arvada. I worked about 6 years already and plan to keep going to till I get my master ASE certification with them. Willing to keep going with them.
