Automotive Jobs & HR Site

Listed below are some of our guidelines for the Job Hub: • Don’t discriminate- Jobs must be made available to qualified candidates regardless of age, race, gender, and sexual orientation. Jobs may also not exclude smokers from applying. Employers may state that smoking is not allowed on-site or at the workplace but may not specify that a candidate cannot smoke outside of work hours in private. (more…)

Auto + Performances Job Hub and our HR Strategy are newly launched. We received a lot of complaints from Collision Centres, Dealerships, and Auto Repair shops that they're in a crisis when it comes to finding the right people and retaining them.

The Job Hub has many well-known Automotive customers throughout North America.

Unfortunately, nothing is guaranteed on the Job Hub. However, our HR strategy Plan and documents can guide and support you along your hiring process.

Since we are Automotive specific it lowers the chances of people ghost-applying. For example, do you find that many of your applicants apply for the job then you never hear back from them? That’s where the term “ghost applying” comes from. By our Job Hub being specifically made for automotive jobs means there is a higher chance that people are applying with the intent of following through with their application.

No, we cannot guarantee employees after using our Job Hub because nothing is guaranteed. However, we have many different techniques and strategies to help set your automotive business up for success. Please review our directory to seek further information!

Looking to get started on your Social Media Journey but not sure where to begin? We suggest starting with these 8 Easy Steps!
  • Step 1: Determine Approach
    • Where do you want your brand to show up?
    • The more you show up, the better it is!
