Service King Collision Repair Centers, as part of the organization’s ongoing commitment to promoting and generating awareness around career opportunities in the collision repair industry, on May 31st, hosted U.S. Representative Derek Kilmer (D-WA) inside its Tacoma, Wash., repair center.
The visit, which featured key Service King leaders and onsite teammates, provided Kilmer a first-hand look at Service King’s growing operations and continued investment in developing career paths for the next generation of the automotive repair workforce.
“From its public commitment to hire 500 veterans and military family members in five years to investing in the next generation of automotive technicians and operating a vibrant, growing business, Service King continues to provide great opportunities to folks in our region,” said Kilmer. “I look forward to the continued positive impact its team makes in the future.”
Service King is currently invested in several recruiting and industry advocacy programs, including its Mission 2 Hire initiative, Apprentice Development Program, Service Advisor Internship program and more.
“Service King and our teammates are honored to visit with a leader who shares our passion for promoting gainful career opportunities to Washington and nearby residents,” said Wesley McAlester, Service King market vice president. “Congressman Kilmer’s visit was a valuable experience for all of our teammates as we continue to build Service King into a beacon of opportunity for area residents.”
