Hello, Joseph.
I am not a mechanic, but many in my family work in and around that industry, and I am currently interested in a mechanic business in my hometown. So, I might be a good fit to answer this....

The toughest part about being a mechanic is being able to communicate. Communication with people about their cars or any machine you are working on is tough because of the language. Being a mechanic, there are words you will use that a layperson will not understand. (A layperson is a person without the knowledge of a specific field - like mechanics)

So, learning to communicate with your words in a way that others without your experience in that field will be able to understand you is key.

Good luck!

Thank you comment icon Hello Angie, I've been working on transportation vehicles all my life and will have to say that your answer is so true. Communication is the most important thing. If you cant understand what's wrong you cant fix it. I would also like to add long hours and very physically demanding at times. chris baber

chris’s Answer

Being a mechanic isn't hard, especially if you love what you do. I'm 48 years old and I've worked on transportation vehicles all my life and if I didn't love it, it would be a hard job. I've always liked fixing things. But will have to say the hard things are understanding what the problem is and what approach to take to fix it. Many people explain things differently, you may get many different ways of people explaining what's going on. So being patent is very important when communicating with someone. Stay positive and open minded when it comes picking a career, Make sure you love what you do and you'll never work hard.
