Audi to hire U.S. military technicians for service department jobs in its dealerships

Article by Christian A., on May 28, 2013

Audi plans to launch a program in the United States that targets military technicians for service department jobs at its dealerships. Dubbed the Veterans to Technicians, the program is developed in part by Calibre a.k.a. a Virginia-based management and technology services company.

The program will recruit veterans that have proven automotive skills but also canditates with experience in power generation, electronics, aviation, welding, hydraulic systems and maritime systems.

Under the Audi program, Calibre plans to handle employment opportunity outreach to more than 1,800 military service alumni groups such as Veterans Service Organizations, Veterans Affairs departments, public and private organizations that support veterans and military transition assistance centers. Of course, eligible veterans must have an honorable discharge and three to five years of direct experience in a military unit's maintenance operations.

According to Audi’s official statement, the veterans will complete (if hired by an Audi dealership) their fast track two-week training program to learn about Audi products and technologies. Audi also said that members of the National Guard and Reserve that are currently serving may also apply.

The German manufacturer also added that as its footprint grows in the United States it is crucial to help its 276 dealers to identify and recruit highly skilled service employees. For those who don’t know, Audi sold almost 140,000 vehicles in the United States last year and expects to sell 200,000 this year. [source: Audi, automotive news - sub. required]
