Body Shop Maintenance Technician

“The freedom within my work as a Maintenance Technician at Nissan is second to none. It’s up to me to make decisions and implement initiatives as I see best and that autonomy is the thing I love most about working here.”

Chris loves the freedom he gets to have a real input on the projects he works on at Nissan. He doesn’t feel micromanaged, instead he is given the responsibility to improve the way we do things – important projects like commissioning lines in facilities that will be used to build our newest electrified models. It’s this autonomy and flexibility that gives Chris his sense of job satisfaction.
