Skilled Electrical / Electronics Technician

I work in the maintenance department for a large automotive manufacturer. I went to school for Electrical, Electronics, Computer Repair & Electronic Communications.  My college has really paid off. I use a lot of what I learned in my everyday job.  I troubleshoot problems with equipment used to build the SUVs  & Crossovers vechiles. Troubleshooting electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic, mechanical & programming problems is one of our primary tasks. Even though something is not broke, there is always room for improvement (Kaizen in Japanese), which we’ll spend our time doing.
Technology is ever changing in the automotive market, which means for my crew and I, we’ll always be forced to learn something new.  To me, it’s very exciting and it keeps my Career interesting.
