I had always dreamt of being a part of a dealership team. Being a part of the Kayser family has allowed my training and insight to further my automotive career. Having the ability to work and learn hands-on with experienced technicians has taught me in ways no college course or time spent at another repair facility has. I am personally excited to continue to grow and learn at Kayser. Being able to share and continue a growth of knowledge within the next generation of Kayser family technicians is nothing short of a privilege.

Why become an Automotive Technician at Kayser?

There is no student loan debt to pay off

Start earning immediately while you are “in school” learning the trade from some of the best technicians in the business.  When you’re done with your 2 year training, you have no student loans to pay off, as we pay for all your training, while also paying you.  How about that...A school that will pay you to attend and teach you for free!

You control your income & career advancement

Take control over how much you make and how quickly you progress through your career.  Unlike many fields where your income is pre-set, a career in automotive allows you to control how much you make per hour by improving how well you complete jobs and how many hours you chose to work. We don’t limit the number of hours you can book, that’s up to you.

You operate as a business within a business

We buy your tools, and they are yours, you own them and keep them. Look at it like your own business that operates inside our larger dealership businesses. You have more control over your career when you own the tools that make your work possible.

Multiple future career options available

Few industries provide as many opportunities to branch off into several different directions as your interest and desires change.  Life is full of changes, and wouldn’t it be nice to choose a career that allows you to pursue many interests while still in the same field.  You can chose to work on different brands of cars, from Fords to Ferraris....from dozers in Alaska to big rigs in Florida...and if and when you no longer have the younger body to get in and around car engines, you could move into another role at a dealership, staying within the same company, staying on the same team. Few industries can give you more opportunities.
