Julie Holmes, co-CEO of Virginia Tire & Auto announced that the company will hold a Cars & Careers hiring event on Friday, January 13 from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at Virginia Tire & Auto’s Tysons Training and Technology Center (2055 Chain Bridge Rd., Tysons). The Training & Technology Center is the company’s second and newest learning facility offering both classroom and hands-on technical training for general service and all levels of technicians.

Interviews and Hiring

Virginia Tire & Auto has 17 locations across Northern Virginia, including Bristow and Gainesville, and will be hiring for all locations with hiring bonuses up to $4,500. The company will be interviewing candidates for a variety of technical and sales positions. All attendees are invited to participate in live demonstrations and hands-on activities before and after the interviews. Those interviewing will be provided a choice of gift certificates including $10 off service or free computerized alignment at any VTA location. Technicians completing an interview will also receive a Snap On Tools gift certificate.

“On January 13, we’ll be making on-the-spot job offers,” said Holmes. “And for those with no automotive experience, we will train them.” Walk-ins are welcome but preference will be given to those who sign up in advance. Call or text 703-785-5153 or email to set up an interview.

“We have fantastic employment opportunities,” added Holmes. “We have a great company team and provide a variety of career opportunities and benefits.” Some of the technicians at Virginia Tire & Auto earn as much as $100,000 a year and the company provides upward mobility for motivated employees.

Recruiting More Women

Holmes has been focused on recruiting more women into the automotive industry and she has hired more than 30 women over the past year. “I just think there’s a great career here for women as well as men,” she said. Holmes, who practiced law before returning to run the family business, believes that there are a number of individuals who either did not complete college or went to college but have not been successful at finding employment who could be perfect candidates for the automotive industry. “College is not for everyone,” said Holmes. “I also know a number of people who are working hard to pay off student loans. We can provide an alternative to college with a good paying salary or work for anyone who has completed college and is looking for employment.”
