What this job is about

You know that grinding noise your car sometimes makes when it's hot? Or that squealing noise your brakes make? An automotive service advisor actually knows what those sounds mean. Automotive service advisors are in charge of checking out and testing troublesome cars to find out what can be done. Inspection and testing usually give way to repairs so that noisy and non-functioning cars get a second chance. Perfect if you're mechanically-minded, precise, extremely thorough and have good customer service skills, you'll be able to tell car owners what their car is trying to say to them.
