Help Wanted: Office/Warehouse Assistant and Tire Tech in East/South Bay - PT/FT
ApexRaceParts.com is a growing e-commerce distributor of high performance automotive parts for racers and serious car enthusiasts. We sell wheels, tires, suspensions, brakes and other performance accessories, with a primary emphasis on BMW’s as we begin our expansion into other European makes. We carry our own line of light weight performance wheels and accessories in addition to being a reseller of other major brands. Our Goal is to ship a high quality product with a fast order fulfillment time that meets the specific needs of our enthusiast customers. We are currently located in Livermore, but our facility will be moved to the San Francisco South Bay by April.
We are looking for candidates to join our team as our office/warehouse assistant and tire technician. This position would be responsible for assisting with general needs in both departments of the business, in addition to assembling wheel/tire packages on an as needed basis.
Warehouse assistants help process daily incoming inventory, break down and sort pallets, and unload monthly freight container shipments. They pull inventory to fulfill orders, package products for shipment, and process them through our shipping software. They are also responsible for helping with inventory counts and keeping the warehouse and work spaces clean and orderly. Forklifts and pallet jacks would be used to move inventory. Experience is preferred but training can be provided.
Office assistants would provide general assistance around the office as needed. They would help answer phones and transfer calls. Pickup supplies, run check deposits, and on occasion a delivery. This position would also assist in the production of marketing material such as flyers and cut vinyl. They would be trained to design, produce and install vinyl on company race cars and promotional vehicles as needed. They would also assist with setup, hosting, and tear down at promotional events.
As a tire technician, this position would mount and balance low profile tires plus TPMS sensors on brand new, high cost wheels without damage, using our new Hunter Auto28 and GSP9700 RoadForce Balancer. Wheel/tire assemblies would be carefully packaged for shipping or installed onto customer cars in our shop. Because tire sales are a newer addition to our service line up, tire mounting will grow from a small portion of work activity. Tire mounting experience is preferred, but can be trained.
This position could be part time or full time. Part-time applicants could convert to full time in the future. We can be flexible with school schedules. This position would report directly to the CEO, and would be working with and trained by other staff. Work would be performed between the hours of 9am and 6pm Monday through Friday. Candidates would need to be available to assist at open house events and offsite for major car shows a few times a year, which are generally held on weekends, and may include travel plus hotel stays. Additional event participation such as races and local car meets would be non-mandatory.
Additional experience and skills that could allow for faster internal promotion are: photography, photo editing, customer service, sales, and e-commerce product management.
If you’re a serious car enthusiast that loves to be around performance parts, race cars, and be actively involved in the automotive community, then this is the job for you.
