I started working for Steve’s Auto Repair and Tire mid-April as a Communications Specialist, which usually means getting to sit behind a desk in front of a computer all day – but that’s not how it works at Steve’s.
Doing communications for an auto repair shop requires being very hands-on. I can’t create content for Steve’s without knowing what I’m talking about. For the first few weeks of my employment, I only worked part time so I could wrap up my college degree, and only recently started working full time. I’ve been at Steve’s for a little over a month now, and in this short period of time, I’ve learned a lot about not only how an auto repair shop works, but about cars themselves. I’ve also learnt why your car sometimes smells like rotten eggs (it’s your catalytic converter, by the way.)
I look forward to continuing my job here at Steve’s. I work in a friendly environment where the guys on the job don’t mind stopping to answer my questions, even if they seem completely ridiculous. I’ve also been promised that someone here will finally teach me how to parallel park, so I can finally commute to D.C. without having to take the darn Metro.
