Vincent’s Answer

The automotive industry is certainly making significant progress, particularly in the realms of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and connected vehicles or infotainment systems. However, the financial rewards might not always compare favorably with those offered by tech companies. That said, pursuing a career in the automotive sector does come with its unique benefits.

A lot of traditional car manufacturers offer their staff vehicle lease incentives. This is not only a valuable benefit for the employees but also a chance for them to represent the company's brand.

Furthermore, the chance to participate in projects that give an up-close look at the future vehicles the company plans to launch is a noteworthy benefit in itself. This offers a sneak peek into the future of automotive technology, making it an exciting prospect for those passionate about cars.

There are multiple benefits! With the given advancements in technology, you get to work on cutting-edge automotive technology such as autonomous driving, connected car systems and electric vehicles. There are multiple domains within automotive so you may be working in engineering and then in designing and if you want then you can switch to marketing or sales, all within automotive. All this while, you will get to contribute to future of transportation, sustainability, and other mobility solutions, making a meaningful impact on the society.

Mack’s Answer

Well as in any career field the benefits very greatly depending on where you end up working. Small mom and pop shops don’t usually offer any benefits. You are a flat rate worker usually. The dealerships offer much better benefit packages. Most of them have a fairly messed up hierarchy though and not the greatest advancement program. I started as a mechanic out of engineering school. After two years of changing tires and doing brake jobs I walked. I had graduated at the very top of my school. I already had been turning wrenches my whole life as my dad owned a marina. We built off shore fishing vessels and had a large rental fleet. I ended up in construction but have zero regrets with going that route in school. I’ve taken multiple vehicles to SEMA that I’ve built. I actually taught a seminar a few years ago there. I still build cool vehicles and I’ve been on a panel that is just about the first group of people to get their hands on preproduction vehicles and give my feedback and paid very well. I would do it for free really because it’s that cool. My case isn’t the way it is for everyone. Being at the right place at the right time has some magic to it. I built a boat a few years ago and broke a world record. None of this would have ever been possible if it wasn’t for my love of it all and the schooling I have done. I just finished my Garrett turbo level 1-5 certifications. I taught a class a couple months ago for the mobile installers association. Brand new Mercedes Benz custom stereo and lighting installation with can bus integration. I now haul equipment all over the US and won out the position over a ton of other people due to my mechanic ability on top of a flawless driving record. A lot of jobs really want you to be versatile. I really believe I’ve been paid above most always due to my versatility. If you have any specific questions feel free to ask.
