    I am finding it necessary to truly spell out what the following means

    “On time
    Rarely misses work”

    I would replace those with something like the following:

    “Vividly understands the importance of being at work, every single day they are scheduled to work, 10 minutes before their start time, in uniform and ready to work.”

    I would replace “loves cars” with “enjoys technical challenges”

    and add “above average math skills”
