Engine tech

I serviced Volvo D12, D13, and Detroit engines for the Freightliner. I have experience with complete tear down and rebuilding Diesel engine experience. As well as overall chassis repair of Volvo and Freightliner semi tractor trailers. While with the company I was moved into the OTR department that oversaw the scheduling of all scheduled and unscheduled maintenance. This position also was responsible for breakdowns of a fleet of 1200 tractors. Explaining how to fix the truck to the driver over the phone to get the vehicle on the road again. If the driver was unable to get the vehicle running we worked with local vendors all over the country, Canada and Mexico.

Machine operator/ maintenance tech

I was in charge of running and maintaining a national 500 cold forging machine. This system is unique to cold forging featuring a fully articulate finger and rocker system to make suspension fasteners using 18.5 mm wire. Due to the fact that the machine was so complex there were only two operators qualified to use the machine. We were also in charge of the maintenance of the machine. This included changing out all parts, conveyor systems, hydraulic pressure systems, nematic control systems and electrical troubleshooting procedures including some work with the Plc. I would have stayed at this factory but due to the fact that my first born had a lot of health complications I resigned.

Overhaul tech

I was in charge of all cockpit overhauls. This included avionics, flight controls, emergency jettison equipment, and the TADS system that controls the operation of the 40 mm canon on the underbelly of the apache helicopter. I would have been more than happy to stay with this career path, but do to government cut backs there are no longer jobs available to civilian contractors.

Body/ mech tech

While working at Dave's Auto I was responsible for all sanding and prep work for collision repair vehicles. This was an entry level position and my first job. While there I also learned the basics of being a mechanic as we also serviced automobiles. Oil changes, filters, and brakes. I worked there for about two years until I joined the Army.
