Diesel Technician (Former Employee), San Diego, CA – June 24, 2013
Pros: worked with very good people, very little micromanagement
Cons: high management turnover
I never believed I would get a chance to use my education in Diesel Technology as I had worked mostly in the Automotive field. I was able to get the job by networking through a friend and became a part of the team in no time. I really liked the people I worked with and was always sad to see them leave when they decided to. It was not an easy position to have and required a great deal of time management and assertiveness to get through the day. An unfortunate reality working at Freightliner was that managers did not stay very long. I was there for almost two years under three different service managers. While it was a trying experience at times, I believe my professionalism helped maintain good working relationships with all fellow employees.
