General Automotive Tech / Mechanic

Automotive Technician / Mechanic Wanted (Kalihi)

Do you like to work on cars? Are you tired of working Saturdays? Would you like to work for a shop that values their people and the contributions they make? Would you like to work for a shop who cares about their customers AND employees?

We are Starkey's Auto Repair. A single location, 10 bay general repair shop in Honolulu, Hawaii. We are family owned and operated and we have been in business for 6 1/2 years. Our shop is busy, upbeat and professional and we are looking for a qualified Automotive Technician with some experience to add to our team.

Our family's vision for Starkey's Auto Repair is to be the most reputable and referred auto repair shop in Hawaii known for our competency, quality, integrity, and service. As an employer, we want to employ qualified, up-beat employees who are honest, show integrity and share in making this an enjoyable place to work where everyone involved can earn a quality living. As a service provider, our goal is to be an efficient, profitable, and successful auto repair shop that has an excellent reputation and who delivers appreciable value to our customers. In our community, our goal is to support efforts that promote a "spirit of service" and improve the conditions for the community that our customers and employees live, work, and play in.

We have many employees who have worked with us for years and have helped us to deliver on these goals. It is rare for positions to open in our shop but when we need to add an employee to our team, we want to find like-minded people who have a high care factor and want to be part of an industry leading family.

If you are reading this and think you are the person for the job, we encourage you to apply.

This role would help us primarily with light/medium duty vehicles. As you can see from the photos, we work on all makes and models. You get to work on what you are comfortable with.
