Newb from IL

Story of me,

My names Joe,

When i was 19 i went to UTI to learn about cars. I graduated and got accepted into the Benz ELITE program. Now i'm 20 and working at MB of Chicago

I dont have a benz but i do have a '67 mustang, '92 240sx, and a '04 Nissan Frontier.

My mustang is a restore project, and i Drift my 240sx. My Frontier is just my DD. I've learned a ton of shit from 240 forums and i joined here to help me learn little things u wouldn't really learn in the shop.

Just curious, could you share some info about your career?

1) Just how much does the UTI/MB Elite program prepare you for the real world of working in a MB dealer?

2) How difficult is it to find employment with the respective auto maker be it MB, BMW,Porsche, what have you?

3) What do you make out of school?

4) What does the typical day at work look like?

I have younger brother who thought about going to UTI.

I have younger brother who thought about going to UTI.
UTI was 27k when i went, the Elite program is 8900. If u get a job within 3 months of graduating MB pays for ur ELITE schooling. U have to hold the job for a year or else u have to pay the money back

It's hard as hell. I called about 20 dealerships+ in Florida and here in IL and i am one of like 3 people who ended up getting a job out of the 14 in my class.

Pay starting is 14-18 an hour.

Typical day at work is badass. I work with a bunch of guys who are cool as hell and teach me a lot. I myself do alot of work and when ever i need help i jsut ask the guys. It's really an amazing shop to work at.

I start work at 8 and get off at 5, and i get an hour lunch
