Cox Automotive Mobility Fleet Services keeps your fleet moving.

Headquartered in Indianapolis, Cox Automotive Mobility Fleet Services (CAMFS) has grown to become one of the largest fleet maintenance companies in the country.

CAMFS is the leading provider of on-site mobile maintenance and repair services nationwide, offering mobile on-site fleet service for light medium, and heavy-duty trucks and trailers. CAMFS also services customers utilizing its 20+ nationwide service centers; each offering accident repair, painting, refurbishment, and heavy mechanical repair. We are supported by a 24/7 in-house call-center and provide scheduled maintenance services and unscheduled services to fleets anywhere, anytime.

Cox Automotive Mobility Fleet Services is proud to announce open enrollment into our next FleeTec Academy class, which is scheduled to start  Sunday, March 5th, 2023.

FleeTec Academy is our Paid Entry Level program that puts you on a path to become one of our expert Diesel Technicians. It was established by us to help people get into Diesel Maintenance field who otherwise might not be able to afford to spend over a year of their life at an expensive formal Technical School with all the associated tuition debt and buy all of the necessary tools for the job without maxing out their credit card.

Here is what we ask from you in return:

  • You must be willing to study hard for four (4) weeks of full-time schooling at our Academy Campus.
  • Upon completion of the initial classroom phase, you will be paired up with a Lead Technician in your market for further hands-on training and offered an actual full-time job with us!
  • Every so often you will be sent back for further classroom study to keep developing your skill set, and upon successful completion of the full multi-year program, you will be able to call yourself a Diesel Technician! Oh, and keep the tools.

To summarize:

  • 4 weeks paid classroom training; Travel expenses are paid by us, along with hotel accommodations and stipend for meals, plus a weekly paycheck.
  • Free Technical Education
  • Further hands-on training by one of our technicians and a full-time job with us as a Mobile Diesel Mechanic in your market.
  • Our Mobile Technicians are assigned a state-of-the-art vehicle, with all the bells and whistles, which they use to perform vehicle repairs at our customers’ locations. You are not going to be doing emergency truck repairs on a side of the road as part of your everyday duties, but rather go to our customers’ locations to do preventative maintenance and general repairs onsite, so they can keep their vehicles running efficiently without having to take them to the shop.
  • Real pay rates and a predefined pathway for raises.

​  Pay Details: 

  • $12 per hour (or state minimum wages, whichever is greater) + $250 / week stipend (taxed)
  • $19 per hour after that for 6 weeks
  • Then 2nd class for 4 weeks at $19 per hour + $250 Per week (taxed)
  • Then + $1 per hour upon graduation.

Sounds like something you might be interested in. Apply now! Our class size is kept extremely small to ensure we can dedicate the time to teach our future technicians properly. We only have one spot in each geographical market we hire, so it will be competitive. Could that next hire, be you?

Requirements:

  • Desire to start a career as a Diesel Technician and become one of our Mobile Mechanics.
  • Willingness and ability to study hard.
  • Dedicate 4 weeks away from home to be with us.
  • Maturity level to focus on the task at hand. This is not a summer camp, but a start of your career path.
  • Technical aptitude and a passion for fixing vehicles.
  • Ability to operate iPad. 
  • Must be 21 to drive one of our trucks.
  • High School Diploma or and equivalent combination of education is preferred, but not required.
