Avoid overtime if you don't get paid for it, learn diesels, save up what you can, then either do the aviation thing, or keep with the diesel technology. Oh, and congrats and good luck!

what happened to moving to boston?

glad to hear u got a job so quick
soon, just needed something to put some cash in my pocket, hopefully they are going to work me on weekends, its a 7dayaweek shop so we shall see.
i think i will do the aviation thing, seems there is a lot more long term benefits and i wont be busting my ass working flat rate trying to make money.

Ford treats their employees like gold I hear.
Ford doesn't have much to say about how employees at dealerships are treated. That's all in the hands of the dealer owner. :shrug

Definitely learn the diesel stuff, that's where the money is. And yeah, pursue more schooling. I can't see how anybody makes a living at a dealership and retires from there unless you really have a strong desire to fix things and put up with the bull crap that comes with a dealership.
