There's a job opening at a local Cummins shop for an entry level diesel mechanic. The job requirements don't include any sort of a degree other than HS diploma. I don't have a degree beyond HS and I've never worked with engines, but this job really interests me. What are they looking for in this type of a position? Do they typically hire people who don't have a degree related to the job? Are women more/less likely to receive a job offer?
I'm comming up with alot of jobs on monster jobsearch that pay 40-50,000 a year BUT they require highschool education or equivalent.
I was wondering if anyone had any idea on what I could make as a diesel mechanic if I had a bachelors degree to bring to the table.
Is it possible that I could get a job as a supervisor and get some good pay like that? I do have military leadership experience.
Any and all input is helpful, thanks.
I have a friend who is looking for a job and is interested in becoming a diesel mechanic. He is asking for my advice. He has a talent for working on small engines and is considering applying for a school to work on trucks. However he is worried that his weight will get in the way. He is borderline overweight/obese. It is said that this job is physically demanding and you have to fit in tight spaces. Can he do this for a living?
Im 23, working for a fortune 500 company as a Diesel Mechanic making $25.80 an hour with full benefits, no kids, no wife, and hardly any other attachements. Is it worth it to leave a really great job to work in Australia for $50-$60/hr.
I am probably willing to relocate anywhere when I get my degree.
I am currently applying to a school in Arizona that is for Diesel mechanics ,it is supposed to be the equivelent of a 2 year degree. I already know about the pay just starting and journey level pay. I just want to be able to get my foot in the door!
Does anybody know how difficult it might be?
Penn foster is accredited and legit. Its just that as an online school, even with a valid diesel mechanic certification, I'll still have had no hands on experience. Will this make it a waste of time? I'd like to get in to the oilfield to work on rig diesel engines, but I live nowhere near a school that offers diesel mechanic classes and can't afford to move.
My husband was told he would earn $15/hour as a diesel mechanic when hired. Logically, you would think that hours would be counted from the time he punched in each morning until he punched out at the end of the day. However, we've learned that he's paid for actual time punched into each job throughout the day. Sometimes he has to wait for his shop foreman to assign the next job - meaning he's not punched into a job and not getting paid. Is this legal in Wisconsin?
I was looking to apply for a job with csx as a diesel mechanic. I was just wondering some of the things that are done and what type of work environment it might be like.

I'm thinking about going to a school like UTI or something for diesel mechanics, but I'm a really indecisive person, haha. I can't decide if that line of work is something I can see myself doing for the rest of my life or not. I do have a lot of interest in diesel engines and mechanics, though. Has anyone done this? Thanks for any help!

I've been doing hard labor my whole life. I am a 51 year old marine diesel mechanic. I own my own business and my labor rate is 75 dollars an hour. Is there any other job I can get into making the same or nearly the same amount of money without intense or excessive schooling? I am getting to old, the heavy parts and intense labor in the past years has been putting a hurting on my body. No rediculous answers please.
I am 15 and wanting to be an auto mechanic/diesel mechanic. Is there any websites out there that are free and show you how to work on cars.

Thanks for any help!
My boyfriend has been out of the marines for almost a year and he's been offered a job in Afghanistan as a diesel mechanic. We've been together for 7 months which I know isn't very long but we're definitely great together and love each other very much so we're going to try to make it through this. He will be gone for a year. Any advice on how to keep our relationship going and stay close while he's away?
