Oscar began his career with TMC Transportation in 2006 working as a part-time cook in the Chrome Café. While working in the cafeteria, Oscar expressed interest in repairing trailers. He ended up being offered a full time job in our wash bay, where he helped wash our Black & Chrome trucks.

He worked in the wash bay for ten months. In December 2007, he was offered a different position after our new Century Body Shop opened. He started at Century repairing parts, moved up to hood repair, and he’s now been working as a painter for the past year. 

Oscar is a husband and father who enjoys his work and the people he works with. Oscar’s father has been a truck driver in his native Mexico since 1986, and he thinks this is what sparked his interest in working on trucks. Oscar would ride along with him occasionally as a child and enjoyed the experience.  Oscar offers these words of advice to others looking to get into the diesel maintenance field: work hard, listen to your supervisors, and get along with others well.
