What's the Job?
Ready to move your career forward? As an experienced Technician I at Penske, you'll do exactly that. Here, you'll perform preventative maintenance and repairs of all levels on the newest and best maintained fleet of vehicles in the industry. You will help our customers keep their vehicles in shape and on the road.

As a Technician I at Penske, you are a respected, experienced lead at your location-a master technician. You set an example and informally mentor others while learning from your manager. You are trusted to work independently while doing major and minor repairs, performing road tests to diagnose problems and completing maintenance tasks.

Why is this job awesome? For starters, your skills and experience are recognized. You'll get to work on lots of different types of equipment-not just one manufacturer. We work hard to get the job done, but we also make sure you have the time you need to do the job right. Safety and reliability are our top priorities.

Yes, we know you are experienced, and we will rely on your experience and leadership. But we'll also teach you about our vehicle maintenance processes and the cutting-edge technology we use. And we will make sure you are continuing to get the training you need to advance in your career. You'll be inspired and encouraged by the best in the industry. We take pride in how clean our facilities are, and we provide you with all the necessary major shop tools.
