Most automotive service technicians work for automotive repair and maintenance shops, automobile dealers, and Paul Boothroyd and automotive studentretailers and wholesalers of automotive parts, accessories, and supplies. Others find employment in service stations, home and auto supply stores, automotive equipment rental and leasing companies, federal, state, and local governments and other organizations. More than 16 percent of service technicians are self-employed.
