The road of life has lots of twists and turns, and our Automotive Technicians are the torque wrench-wielding surgeons for everything on four wheels who keep it moving smoothly. So, this job is kind of a big deal. It’s the kind of work that calls for someone who loves cars and people. If the idea of making cars sing gets your motor running, keep reading. We’re Manheim, part of the Cox Automotive family of businesses, and we may have something under the hood that will interest you.
What You’ll Do
Working solo or with a team, you’ll maintain and repair vehicles for Manheim to make them look and run like new. Remember that “loves people” thing? Well, that’s because you’ll be delivering exceptional service to customers, and mastering the fine art of balance (not just wheels, but wallets) as you mindfully manage costs to keep customers satisfied and our margins within the white lines. Here’s a list of some of the key responsibilities that accompany this job:
- Perform preventive maintenance and “health checks” on vehicles – everything from changing oil, oil filter, fuel filter, & transmission flushes, to inspecting vehicles for mechanical flaws. The car doctor is IN.
- Troubleshoot and repair complex hydraulic systems, generators, and electrical systems, hybrids, and on-board computer systems on specialized trucks.
- Depending upon your certification level, you may perform various repairs and maintenance that involve (you ready for this list?): OBD II systems, brake components, tires, tune-ups, suspension components, aerial lifts, electrical systems, state safety Inspections, interior/exterior components, engine and drive line components, and bumper stickers. (Okay, we made up the bumper sticker part.
- You may be asked to repair and maintain shop equipment, because you’re good like that.
- You’ll be expected to know and follow all safety procedures.
- You’ll need to create and maintain vehicle histories and maintenance records. You may even up fit vehicles with necessary equipment, and even provide custom equipment when needed by engaging in equipment design and moderate fabrication tasks including welding.
- You’ll assure prompt repairs by working with vendors for parts and repairs, and from time to time, you may even perform roadside assistance.
What’s In It For You?
- Let’s face it, you can’t get the job done without the right tools. At Manheim, you’ll be working with some of the most advanced and innovative tools & technology available, allowing you to make every repair remarkable.
- Cox is a big believer in developing leaders from within the company, and once you’re with us, we’ll support your efforts to find an ideal mentor, train for other opportunities, and make moves within the business that support your goals. Whether you’re looking to accelerate your path, or shift gears, we’re here to fuel your journey. When it comes to your career, we care about the details.
- You’ll be rewarded with competitive pay and generous incentives. If you’re full-time, there’s tons of other perks you’ve come to expect (e.g., 401k + company match, comprehensive medical benefits, etc.) and others you may not expect (e.g., tuition reimbursement for academic pursuits, adoption assistance, paid time off to volunteer, childcare and eldercare resources, pet insurance (crazy cool, right?) and much more…)
- As part of the Cox team, you’ll be a part of a culture that puts people first, and believes in being a force for good in our communities as well as for the planet (more specifically – Earth, though we like them all).
Who You Are
You’re confident with the right tools in your hand, and you can bring vehicles back to life with your abilities to repair and restore. When someone says, “Can you fix this?” you pretty much say “Yes” before you even know what’s wrong. Despite all that swagger, you’re an easygoing, friendly person, who gets along well with others and likes being part of a tight-knit team. You’re cool behind the wheel of any kind of ride, and take great care with how you drive. You’re comfortable with all the rigors that come with working on a vehicle – outdoors and in the elements — and believe that the best way to raise your game is to take advantage of training opportunities as they roll your way.
- High school diploma or GED (or 3+ years of related work experience servicing vehicles instead of the degree).
- 3+ years vehicle service and repair experience.
- Ability to drive standard and automatic transmission vehicles.
- Valid driver’s license and safe driving record.
- Continue training to maintain current A.S.E. status and to meet with technology and fleet changes as they occur.
- Requires some A.S.E. Automotive or Truck Certification or other related certifications.
- Frequently required to stand, walk, reach, talk, hear, stoop, bend, kneel, crouch, squat, climb, and tolerate excess noise levels, car exhaust and outdoor weather conditions.
- Vision requirements: close, distance and color vision, depth perception and ability to adjust focus.
