Lee Johnson Auto Family Announces the Launch of New Auto Technician Tuition Reimbursement and Apprenticeship Program
The program provides up to $12,000 tuition reimbursement, a paid part-time apprenticeship with flexible hours that supports the student class schedule, as well as the opportunity for full time employment upon graduation and a Mac Tools Master kit with Tech Box (valued at over $12,000).
"Here at Lee Johnson, we pride ourselves on giving back and being a part of the communities we serve. What better way to do this, than providing meaningful financial assistance, as well as a paid apprenticeship to students working towards becoming a technician. In addition to making a positive impact in the community, we hope to continue to build our team of skilled technicians to be able to serve our customer base," said Lee Johnson Director of Fixed Operations, Brett Baker.
Lee Johnson COO, Justin Meek said, "The service we provide after the car sale is just as important as the service we provide during the car sale. We are committed, as operators of franchise car dealerships, to developing a skilled team of technicians to keep the cars in our community safe and on the road. We are proud to offer this program and opportunity for people in our communities to build a career."
Applications for the program are due by the 15th of each month – for more details and to apply, please visit: www.leejohnson.com/
