Being an auto technician at Sweeney Chevrolet in Boardman is more than replacing brakes and getting grease under your fingernails.
Today’s auto techs are doing more with technology than they were in years past. That also makes it a cleaner job than one might expect.
“It’s definitely not what people think it is,” says Alex Charnesky, an auto tech at Sweeney. “I know myself, I imagined a lot more changing pistons, changing engines. That kind of thing. But it’s a lot more of a cleaner job anymore.”
In this exclusive Brain Gain Navigators video, hear from Charnesky and other auto techs at Sweeney Chevrolet on why they got into the job and what the day-to-day work is like.
