Can you describe opportunities for career growth at your business?

We are growing rapidly! In addition to helping our technicians become certified, we also encourage every technician to think about where they see themselves in 5, 10, or 20 years. For some technicians, that means continuing to excel at their passion. For others, that means stepping into a foreman role or transitioning to the front desk or an upper management position.

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

Yes, our head of recruiting will contact you directly by phone and/or text if he thinks you're a fit for the position. You can expect this call to last 10-15 minutes and will cover basics like: what you're looking for in your next shop, which parts of the vehicle you're most comfortable with, and an introduction to our story and philosophy.

What do your in-person interviews entail?

We want you to see our shop! During your in-person interview, you may be meeting with our GM, our owner, or both. We also encourage you to walk around the shop. If you like, talk to some of the other techs or front desk personnel. What do they like about working here? What don't they like? We want to make sure this is going to be a good fit for YOU.

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

All job offers from Village Autoworks include a pre-employment background check. We know that mistakes happen, and people change, and we're happy to give folks a second chance. All we ask is that you're up front with us about what your background may include, so that we're not surprised by the results.

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

We do not conduct a "working" interview, but you will be asked about your automotive knowledge. This will include being asked to provide specific examples of previous repairs or asking how you would respond to different scenarios.

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

We typically provide a rejection or an offer within 24 hours after your interview.

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

Our recruiter will contact you within 24 hours of receiving your application. An in-person interview is then scheduled based on your availability.

If you are available for the initial phone call and in-person interview immediately, the entire process can take as little as 24 hours, but typically takes 36-48 hours.
