Everything starts from a banal pub for Norauto on social networks. ” I saw that there was a quiz on mechanics. I clicked out of curiosity, to take stock of my skills. Here is Louis, a mechanic from Arras, caught up in the gears of the Meca Master. A competition that claims to find the best mechanic in France “.
Ten thousand candidates
Like Louis, 10,000 Internet users answered technical questions, but not only. ” They are also asked about topics around customer relations, electronics, alternative energies “, explains Ingrid Robil, leader of human development at Norauto.

A day of trials

Does it ring a bell ? ” It was rightreports Rodolphe, one of the finalists. These are not simple operations, it requires a little experience. But mechanics wasn’t the only event on the menu. They were also judged on electronic problems, a new quiz and on their pedagogy with customers.
