Careers at Yellow Hat (full-time and part-time jobs)

  • No car knowledge, no experience required.

Yellow Hat may give off an image that says you need to have car knowledge to work here, but that isn't true. Many staff members don't know anything about cars when they begin. Our workers (including homemakers and foreign students) started working here for various reasons. These reasons include a desire to work close to home, to be able to commute by car, to be able to learn new skills, and to be able to work short term. We provide full training support so even those without experience can work with confidence!
