Where would I work?
Maintenance Managers work in truck maintenance facilities across the country. These can range from small independent shops to large maintenance facilities that are an important part of a carrier's business. Technicians work 8- to 12-hour shifts. Evening and night shift work is common in larger operations.
Working on trucks can be dirty and physically demanding. Most shops provide coveralls and/or shop uniforms, and some provide safety footwear and other personal protective equipment. Whether or not your employer provides you with the necessary uniforms or protective gear, it's your responsibility to stay safe at all times.
