Female Quick Lube Tech
placed an ad for a new quick lube/ maintenance tech. So far we have had
about 20 male applicants and 3 female applicants. This is interesting because I
can’t remember ever receiving an application from female for a technician. The female
applicants seem to be better prepared, more organized and interview better than
the male applicants. In fact the three female applicants are at the top of our
prospect list! All have prior experience with a dealership, quick lube or
independent repair facility. With the
exception of our female employee’s in the office we have never had a
female tech work in the shop but we are definitely are open to the idea.
Has anyone hired or currently employ a female tech? Did you run into any issues
between the male and female techs in the shop? Many
thoughts have gone through my head like employees dating, “typical male
talk” possibly offending and employee, the physical demands of automotive
has any comments or advice it would be greatly appreciated!
