Adonis Auto - Houston - Technician Jobs in Houston, TX

About Us

WE HAVE MANY OPPORTUNITIES FOR GOOD PEOPLE! COME WORK IN OUR BRAND NEW, AIR-CONDITIONED, RECON-ONLY AUTO REPAIR SHOP. Adonis Auto was founded in 2010 with one goal in mind: to provide our customers with the reliable transportation they need and the respect they deserve. For too long, credit-challenged individuals have been taken advantage of by shady used car dealerships and predatory subprime auto lending practices. We aim to “rescue” people from those companies, and we find creative ways to do so. We are radically open-minded in our recruiting process and pride ourselves on our diversity. Working here will be challenging and stimulating for people with all levels of experience in the automotive industry and is an opportunity for you to work in our largest Recon-only shop, located in South Houston’s Pearland area. Adonis is a company dedicated to providing our team members with the best career opportunities: we’ll support you in obtaining ASE training and certifications, leadership training, and an array of other learning and development tools to grow your skills. Come work with us, and you will be a part of a company that is different - a company that strives to genuinely help people, thrives on its asymmetry, and believes that when you care about people and act to positively impact individuals and families, you can and will make a difference in your community.

Your direct supervisor will do a performance review with you at 30, 60, 90 days and then every six months.

There is nothing required of you to apply. We conduct our own safety training for our team members on their first day and then periodically after that.

We encourage this very much, but just because someone is a more experienced technician, we don't require them to work with less experienced techs. We match technicians for learning based on skills but also mutual interest in mentoring and being mentored.

We are new to the South Houston/Pearland area, so we have not begun outreach in the community, but we hope to do so. We aim to be good, responsible neighbors as long as we are here.

Do you phone screen applicants before doing in-person interviews?

We do a phone screening with all qualified applicants. If we decide to move forward, we will next schedule an in-person interview.

What do your in-person interviews entail?

You'll usually interview in the actual shop where you'll work. We do this so you can see the work environment and even meet some supervisors and team members.

Do you perform background checks, drug screening, or personality tests before hiring an applicant?

We do a reference check. We will also ask you to complete a Predictive Index personality test, so we can better understand your work style.

Do you perform a skill assessment before hiring an applicant? If yes, what does it entail?

Our interviews are usually with people here who have done the actual job. They will ask you about your specific skills and be sure you have all the necessary skills to do the job.

After an in-person interview, approximately how long should I expect to wait for a rejection or an offer?

We try to send notice to you within three days.

Approximately how long does the full hiring process take from submitting the application to the time of the hiring decision?

We move very quickly at Adonis, especially for this brand new shop as we have many roles to fill - and quickly!
