Hire a Mechanic

 

Mechanics are skilled problem-solvers with skill in maintaining and fixing vehicles and machinery. With the convenience and ease that modern machines and vehicles bring, there is no doubt about the importance of mechanics. With each inspection and repair, they help ensure our safety. 

 

Mechanics work in indoor garages on a part-time or full-time arrangement. Because they deal with customers and other mechanics daily, mechanics also should have excellent customer service skills. 

 

In hiring mechanics, a job description is a crucial first step in the recruitment process. Creating a job description that is concise yet detailed helps attract your ideal candidates. It is easy to think of a job description as merely a list of requirements and job expectations. However, a job description can also serve as a way to pique the interest of job seekers and encourage them to apply. 

 

Another reliable way to source candidate leads is through employee referrals. You never know if the next efficient mechanic you are looking for is already within their network. 

 

Responsibilities of a Mechanic

 

Mechanics consult with customers to learn about their concerns and issues with a machine or vehicle. To further assess the vehicle, mechanics use diagnostic equipment to determine any mechanical problems and functional issues. They communicate their findings to the customer and provide an estimate of costs. Once the customer approves the estimate, mechanics can proceed with the repair plan.

 

Another important aspect of being a mechanic is conducting regular maintenance jobs to prevent damage and ensure that machines and vehicles are functioning optimally. They evaluate the condition of systems, lights, and accessories. Mechanics rotate and balance tires, lubricate vehicle components, inspect hoses, mirrors, fluid levels, and change the oil as needed. Other responsibilities of mechanics include taking an inventory of all materials, ordering new stock, and keeping records of all jobs. They document all the details of inspections, repairs, replacements, and all services rendered on each vehicle.  Lastly, mechanics are responsible for maintaining a clean and safe working environment to prevent any mishap or accident. They wear personal protective equipment as required and work according to all safety standards and precautions. 

 

Skills and Qualifications of a Mechanic

 

A high school diploma or GED is required to apply, and candidates with a certification from a technical or vocational school are preferred. Also, a valid driver’s license is typically required. Previous work experience as a mechanic is a definite plus. 

 

Candidates must have strong knowledge of hydraulic and electrical systems, vehicle diagnostic equipment, and other machinery. Similarly, the ability to confidently operate various hand tools and other equipment is part of the job. Mechanics communicate with customers and other team members frequently. As such, excellent listening, interpersonal, and communication skills are beneficial. The ability to follow written and verbal instructions with attention to detail is essential. The ideal candidate for mechanic is a problem solver with good customer service skills. Lastly, candidates must have the physical strength to lift or carry heavy objects as required and be on their feet for extended periods.
