Wisconsin Lift Truck Apprenticeship Spotlight: Meet Oscar!
Oscar is an Apprentice Shop Technician for Wisconsin Lift Truck, and has been with us for almost 1 year! Oscar first heard about our technician program while attending MATC, as one of our corporate technical trainers had been visiting to talk about our apprenticeship program opportunities.
But even before attending MATC, Oscar knew from a young age that he had a passion for fixing things!
Though it all started with auto mechanics for Oscar, he feels that working on forklifts and other material handling equipment is a bigger challenge, giving him something new and different each day.
Oscar is currently enrolled in our company’s tuition reimbursement program, which is offered to each of our technicians, helping them to pay for tuition, tool, books etc.
When asked about advice he may have for prospective candidates, and new apprentices, Oscar stated: Be patient, don’t be intimidated, show interest and work hard. It all pays off in the long run!
