New Diesel Technician Job Opportunities at Expanded Shrewsbury Facility

When attending the different career fairs throughout the country, I receive many different questions about Schneider. A couple of the first questions are:

  • “Where are we located?”
  • “Do we have a location near this area?”

Schneider has many facility locations throughout the United States, and we’re continually adding service sites in new areas, meaning more diesel technician jobs and career opportunities for you.

A prime example of expanding diesel technician job opportunities

I usually refer to the situation that we have in Shrewsbury, Mass.:

3 years ago when we opened:

  • A service site
  • 2 technicians
  • 1 service truck

Today since opening our new Shrewsbury facility in May 2017:

  • 7 maintenance bays
  • 167 parking spaces for trucks and trailers
  • 12 technicians

Continued expansion is expected with even more career opportunities.

Meet our Shrewsbury facility manager

Shrewsbury Shop Outside

Richard Hebert is the manager of the Shrewsbury shop. Rich has been in the diesel industry for about 19 years. Rich originally went to school to become an auto mechanic, but after eight months he decided to make the move into the diesel industry.

Rich started at the bottom and has been working his way up ever since. Rich started out his diesel technician career working for Mack, where they put him through school. From there he worked his way into a master technician position. When asked what it is he likes most about Schneider, he replied, “Core values — seems no matter who you talk to in the company, everyone sticks to them.”

Rich also added “I like that we don’t cut cost on maintenance; we like to keep the fleet rolling.”

What the future holds for our Shrewsbury facility

Shrewsbury Shop Inside

The Shrewsbury shop has a couple different goals in mind:

  • Become a 24-hour shop that is open seven days a week.
  • Become a shop that can work on anything that rolls through the door.

Schneider is looking to hire people that are looking for a career in the diesel technician industry. We want techs who are looking to grow in the industry and advance with our technology as well as having a strong work ethic and a great attitude.

Today, Shrewsbury has several different career opportunities as we continue to expand our shop. If you feel you have the skills and the drive that would fit with our team, please feel free to apply today.

Do you have any questions about diesel technician careers in Shrewsbury or at any of our other facilities?
