What made you interested in joining Gerber’s Technician Development Program?
“I’ve always been interested in working on cars and working with my hands. I worked before on oil changes and tires but was getting sick of it and I wasn’t paid well. This fits me a lot better, getting more of a satisfaction out of things.”
How would you describe the TDP?
“I thought it was great. I couldn’t speak more highly of my trainer (Tim Hague). He won an award. Incredibly patient, knows everything, has so much knowledge to spare. Plus working in this shop has been fantastic. I’ve been at other shops but this one’s the best.”
How do you feel the program has prepared you for a career in this industry?
“It gave me all the tools that I needed to work with. Training me to know everything that I needed to know. A team supporting me from behind and with the knowledge to get everything right.”
