Audi Launches Program to Hire U.S. Military Technicians
May 28, 2013—Audi of America has launched a new program aimed at attracting former military technicians to Audi certified service department roles.
Audi says the new Veterans to Technicians program will fill an immediate need for both U.S. veterans and Audi retailers.
Emphasis will be placed on recruiting veterans with proven automotive skills, but candidates with power generation, aviation, welding, electronics, hydraulic systems and maritime systems experience are also eligible.
“Our nation has invested significant sums to train veterans in technical fields, leadership skills and uncompromising values,” said Reinhard Fischer, director of strategy for Audi of America. “That means former members of the armed forces are ideal candidates for the opportunities Audi and its dealerships offer. As the Audi footprint grows in this crucial market, and as our cars become more complex, it is imperative to help our 276 U.S. dealers identify and recruit highly skilled service employees.”
