We are currently hiring for two positions at our salvage yard in Merlin, Oregon, as listed below. Join our supportive team and work with the cars you love.
Organized, Motivated Technicians & Shipping Agent
We're looking for two highly motivated people with a decent amount of general automotive experience who learn quickly, can adapt to different tasks throughout the day, and can create and maintain organizational systems. You must be physically fit and able to regularly lift 50+ pounds; you will be required to work under cars, on the ground, and in other physically demanding situations.
We are currently hiring for two full-time positions at our Classic Mercedes specialty salvage yard in Merlin. Both of these involve wearing two hats and are also opportunities to train into more advanced technical positions.
- Repair Assistant & Salvage Technician
- Shipping Agent & Salvage Assistant
Both positions consist of dismantling/pulling parts off vehicles in our salvage yard which will also include:
-Adding parts to our online database
-Maintaining inventory organization
-Cleaning and organizing the salvage shop
For position #1 we are seeking someone with work experience in the automotive industry—a repair shop or salvage yard. Ideally you have experience working with diesel engines, classic cars and German vehicles. You will be assisting our lead technician in our repair shop and doing more advanced technical work in the salvage yard, such as stripping down engines.
For position #2 you need not have professional experience in the automotive industry, but should have a solid understanding of vehicle parts, have good mechanical skills, and have some basic experience with shipping. Your primary job will be packaging and shipping parts to our customers. Through this you will learn a great deal about the cars we work with and the parts we sell. In addition you will work as an assistant parts puller.
Both positions will start out part-time during an initial training period until you have enough experience to manage your own task list. Both positions will require some amount of computer work. You absolutely must be able to do work on the computer without getting frustrated or intimidated or you will not work out at this company. You must also be able to manage your own labor without continual supervision.
We are a growing small business based in Merlin specializing in online sales of new and salvage parts for Classic Mercedes.
This is a great opportunity to get in on the ground level of a growing company. We are about to expand operations into southern California and expect a lot of growth in the next few years. The more you put into the job, the more you will get out of it. There is opportunity to move up to a position such as Salvage Manager or Fulfillment Manager if you perform well.
Pay is hourly and starting wage depends on experience.
In addition to the following formal benefits, we also offer a work environment that is highly understanding of employee needs, and allows for more flexibility than elsewhere.
After an initial 2-3 month trial period, you'll receive the following benefits:
-4 hrs paid time off per month
-3 paid holidays per year
You must be willing to submit to drug testing for *illegal* drugs.
Please email us with your resume and a brief paragraph detailing both why you are interested in this position and why we should consider you over other applicants. Applications without both will be ignored.
We have no tolerance for discrimination or harassment of any kind. Whether it is based on gender, race, sexual orientation, religion, trans/gender identity, or anything else.
