The car dealership chain is looking to bolster its digital, technician and customer service ranks. The company has 220 stores nationwide.
The hiring spree includes adding more 1,400 auto technicians, detailers and painters as well as 700 customer service consultants, 150 digital and technology workers and 900 sales and business associates, the company said Tuesday.
The company is offering signing bonuses of between $1,500 and $7,500 for some positions.
Employers have been struggling to fill some open positions requiring added benefits, bumps in pay and signing bonuses.
