My day to day duties include everything from light line repairs all the way up to engine and transmission diagnosis and repair. My days usually begin with prioritizing the vehicles to get them back in service in the most efficient way possible. One of the best things about my job is there are no two days alike. With multiple vehicle lines in current and previous model years every day is filled with new challenges and is always a learning experience.
My advice to transitioning soldiers would be to take advantage of all the resources provided while you are out processing and make sure to keep track of all your paperwork (especially DD214). Spend as much time perfecting your resume as possible and ask others to review it so you can get their feedback." Be proud of your military service.
Outside of my basic daily duties which includes managing our readiness and executing our process. The true reward in my position is the opportunity to build a team through leadership, compassion, and education. When my management team and workgroup employees know that I have their best interest at heart along with understanding how important their position is in reaching our goal, they take pride in what they do. Mentoring my managers and challenging them to think outside the box, whether it's changing a process or implementing a new one. This has given them pride and ownership in improving our location. I have taken great pride in relaying the message of our senior leadership which is "family first and Do the right thing".
I would advise anyone transitioning from the military into this company that growth and recognition is what you make of it. Hard work and dedication is noticed and rewarded. Throughout the years that I have worked for ABG in various locations, the common thread is the work ethic and loyalty the employees of each location have. This place will become more than a job it becomes your second family.
