    We've been posting on several sites regarding our lube tech opening for at least 3 months with little response and the ones we get are inexperienced or unqualified.

    Any suggestions on where to advertise for service tech job openings to get a better pool of applicants from?

    Used Indeed, Monster, CareerBuilder, Zip Recruiter, Craigslist, FB Marketplace, local papers... We're really hurting for help and now we're losing a full line tech as well.

    Thanks for any insight or tips!

    Katherine, thanks for posting. I'm not 100% how to answer but I'll see if I can't find someone to help out. Maybe Adam from Hireology can help out.

    We had a really tough time hiring for these positions as well, especially when you factor in the cost of living in NorCal near our stores. We maintained relationships with some of the local high schools that still have an autoshop program, local community colleges, and job fairs with the major mechanic schools. Lots of hard work to find the right people.
