Relatively current basic knowledge of modern automotive systems, knowledge of the NYS inspection and Repair Shop laws & a valid driver's license.

Not only is AJ Foreign Auto the place for personalized, professional car maintenance, it's the automotive workplace with potential! Why stay in a dead-end job when you can enjoy all these benefits:

  • Your skills + ambition = Rewards. Progressive pay plan to reward your skill & efficiency, plus full benefits package!
  • We have the diagnostic shop tools you need. We have extensive diagnostic equipment with updated software. Some of our equipment includes a Redline Smoke-Pro machine, John Bean 3D alignment system, John Bean tire balancing system, and Corghi tire mounting system. Additionally, we subscribe to various industry exclusive online information systems to assist with diagnosis & have acquired many specialized factory tools. We help you do things right--the first time.
  • Professionalism = Consistent business flow. We are a AAA Approved Repair Shop, BOSCH Service Center, NAPA AutoCare Center, Chamber of Commerce member, have an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau and have ASE Certified technicians. These associations help portray our professionalism to the community and also help bring business to you! We utilize many venues of marketing to keep customers coming in and coming back, which greatly minimizes slow times and allows us to stay fairly busy when some other shops are sending tech's home due to lack of business. Additionally, we try to have some shop projects in mind to keep our team busy with "shop time" work when customer business is low during the dead of winter.
  • Benefits. We offer a weekly tool allowance with Snap-On, health insurance premium contribution, trainings, ASE certification, a retirement plan, vacation time, sick/personal time and holiday pay.
  • No baloney. We have a small shop attitude with big shop benefits and pay! Why keep suffering at that big place where you're only a number?
