Why Become a Top Shop?

20% of technicians have no interest in leaving their current shop, less than 5% are actively looking for work, and 75% of technicians are open to new opportunities

Less than 5% of technicians are looking at job boards, but 75% are open to new opportunities. If your recruiting strategy starts and ends with job boards, you’re not getting in front of the majority of technicians. You need to take a different approach to attract passive candidates with employer marketing.

Our WrenchWay Top Shop program is designed to attract both active and passive candidates and show them why they should work with you.

“It’s a lot more than just a plain recruiting tool. WrenchWay has become an integrated part of our daily process.”

Shop Talk Videos

Video is becoming an increasingly important tool for recruiting technicians. We will create two professional videos each month. These will only take a few minutes on your end, and we’ll do the rest. If you’d like to add more, we also provide guides on other types of videos you can record.

The videos will show up on your Top Shop page, and you can use them on your social media pages or anywhere else you would like. We will also promote them in our Shop Talk video feed and in our Local Shop Talk Newsletters.*

*Local Shop Talk Newsletters will be launching later this summer in limited cities. Keep checking back as we will be adding more cities!

Inclusion on WrenchWay’s Top Shop Listing

Once your Top Shop page is approved, you will be included on the WrenchWay Top Shop listing on our website and on the WrenchWay mobile app.
