A Service Advisor’s main responsibility is to interpret customer concerns for the auto mechanic so that the mechanic can diagnose and repair problems correctly. The advisor then translates the actual repair problem, which may be very complicated, into language the customer can understand. Auto Service Advisors also work with customers to schedule service and handle administrative aspects of customer service departments.
