I am a fleet mechanic for Pike Electric. As a fleet mechanic you are pretty much your own boss. When you leave there in the mornings to go within your radius to work on a truck you know what equipment needs to be looked at and you know what needs to be done. For a big company like Pike there is so much equipment that it is never the same thing. You can learn so much more. There are all kinds of opportunities to move up and advance. When I started I worked on the yard helping some of the drivers. I showed an interest in driving and they put me on the road. After that I just showed some interest in being a mechanic. I have always felt good about my job knowing it is a good, strong, stable job. Good equipment to work with and you are with a good bunch of guys. It is good to be part of a team like that. That comes from the heart. We are strong. We are dependable. We are proud. And we are Pike.
