Yea depends on how much he knows and how good he is? How are his certs. Most diesel work here is all warranty. So you have to be Ford Diesel Certified to do the work. A month ago we were like 25 trucks behind. Now we've caught up since we hired a new tech. IMO if he has a job keep it till it picks up a bit more. But shops are always looking for "good" diesel techs.
i work at prestige ford and i make good money but these guys are right hes gotta have certs in diesel through ford or he will only start off making 12 to 15 an hour if he can even find somebody to get him on.
Apparently millions judging by some of their race cars! One of my cousins clears an easy $120k at his day job and no telling what doing side work. He's in a much smaller market and is the only Navistar specialist within 200 miles.
