Becoming a Technician at Ruan

Jul 1, 2020

Becoming a diesel mechanic or technician can be a highly rewarding career. It's not just another job or paycheck; a career at Ruan as a technician will set you up for a successful future. Here are some insights from one of our regional maintenance managers on becoming a diesel mechanic at Ruan. 

What are the advantages of working for Ruan vs dealerships?

Most dealerships operate on factory standard repair times (SRT). Dealerships typically don’t take the condition of equipment or the situation into account. Pay structure is representative of SRTs, and technicians must perform to this measure.

At Ruan, we use standard time for guidance but focus on the quality of repairs. Ruan holds our maintenance team to a high standard, and this ensures our equipment will perform its best once leaving the shop.

Another advantage is of working for Ruan is the ability to grow in your career. You can start your career with Ruan and advance as far as your goals will take you. Ruan is proud to offer career paths that benefit our team members, and we have had many employees start as a Utility Worker or Technician I and move up through the organization, even reaching the level of senior vice president.
