The Rewards of Independence
As an independent Hunter Technical & Training Representative, your success is directly determined by your personal drive and skills. At the same time, you'll have the support of a recognized leader in the automotive service equipment industry.
You'll use multiple skills: troubleshooting electronic and mechanical systems, performing repairs, training equipment users, interacting with technicians and shop owners.
You'll install and train technicians on state-of-the-art equipment. You'll operate from your service van and your in-home office. Today's communication and computer technology puts your customers and Hunter resources at your fingertips.
Your Efforts Directly Affect Your Compensation
Hunter's service force is unique in the industry. All service income goes directly to the Representative who performs the service; Hunter does not take a percentage. As a result, Hunter T&T Representatives have a low turnover rate. Among those past their first year of service, the average is over seven years, with many in the 20-year category.
Work With Hunter's State-of-the-Art Equipment
Hunter Engineering Company was founded in 1946 by Lee Hunter, recently inducted into the Automotive Hall of Fame. Hunter pioneered four-wheel alignment in the '70s, and in 1980 introduced the industry's first alignment system using a CRT method of display. The company has grown dramatically in the past decade with an expanding product line.
