Career Traction with Transmissions | Service Manager Rene Talamantes through Internship

Ricardo (Rick) Rodriguez took full advantage of his internship at South Plains Implements, during his Diesel Technology program at Western Technical College. As Service Manager Rene Talamantes says, “During his internship, we knew we wanted to hire him by the third day. We didn’t have an opening to hire him, but we created a position so we could.”

“Western Tech prepared me for the workforce through hands-on training and all the operational theory,” says Rick. He claims that the interview practice also made him more confident. “They showed me how to express myself and explain what I know with confidence.” Today Rick is responsible for diagnosing and repairing electrical, hydraulic, and transmission issues on tractors. “Transmissions are my favorite things to work on because they are challenging, and in this industry there is always a different and new model to work on.”
