We have a position available for a Technician at our Extremely Busy  Plano location. With locations in both Georgia, Texas, and soon-to-be Tennessee we are the largest independently owned European Repair Shop in the United States. We have been in business since 1980. Because of COVID-19, the business landscape will be changing for the automotive industry. Many Mom and Pop Shops will not be able to weather the storm. We have survived the Stock Market Crash 1987, Dot Com Crash 2000, Two Gulf Wars, and the Real Estate Crash 2008. These times were challenging, but we saw our business grow immediately following these events. Our company is positioning itself for the largest growth since we were founded. 

We are not franchised. The Owner Bob Saladna started repairing cars out of his mother's garage in 1979 and opened his first shop in 1980, and he still runs the company today. ESC understands that each shop needs the latest and best diagnostic equipment, which is why we have multiple diagnostic platforms at each location. We also have internal and external tech support We also provide on-site and offsite technical training on the latest automotive technology and diagnosis strategies. We also understand that each shop location is slightly different which is why we allow each manager flexibility to manage their location differently. European Service Center offers a family atmosphere that makes for a great work environment.

We are looking for talented automotive mechanics to join our growing company. The individual in this role will be responsible for servicing and repairing European cars. We are seeking a candidate with a solid background in automotive repair, as well as experience with electronic system diagnostics. We provide all the diagnostic equipment Autologic, AutoLand, Autel, DAS, ISTA, and more. This shop has the latest 4 wheel camera alignment equipment from Hunter, a top-of-the-line Hunter tire mounter and balancer. This is a climate-controlled shop.
