Are you looking for a dealership position or an independent shop? I don't know much about the area job-wise (we moved here when I retired last year), so don't really have an idea of what's available. You could browse CraigsList for Boise or also the Idaho Statesman newspaper to get an idea of what's out there.

I dont care if it's a dealer or indy shop as long as they always have cars to fix and I dont stand around not making money. Honestly I was just hoping someone connected would see this and get me an inside track. Thanks for your response

I'm fairly new here in the Boise area, so have no connections. However, I will keep my eye on the employment ads for you.

Good luck!!

TXRanger19,

I've been looking at the weekly ads and also the Sunday paper, and am just not seeing much of anything for auto techs. Strange....most larger metro areas seem to always have openings. Guess people like living here and stay put in their current jobs.

Try boisehelpwanted.com. It's a popular local site. There are several mechanic positions posted right now. Also, Craigslist.

We moved to the Boise area very much so far even though it's been much colder than usual. The people are friendly, there is always something to do, and the amount of outside activities, even in the dead of winter is something else! One thing I haven't liked is the amount of fog we've gotten recently and the lack of sunny days, but all the natives insist that it is not usual. I moved from the Jacksonville, Florida area back in August, and the two areas are so vastly different that I started a blog about the differences. If you're interested, the info on how to get to it is on my info page. It's been a very, very interesting transition so far.

My wife and kids say that they've heard that this is Boise's 2nd coldest winter on record. Boy have they had a nice welcome. They arrived there just before Thanksgiving and I guess they made it just in time.
They have told me they have adjusted well. They just wish I was there with them to enjoy the cold!
I would love to, but 'gots' to sell this house here in NM first! Pray it happens soon. I miss them dearly.
