    Drive a Winning Career with Checkered Flag


    At Checkered Flag, we’ve been providing drivers in Norfolk, Chesapeake, Portsmouth, Newport News, and Hampton with first-rate vehicles and services since 1964. In the 50+ years that have passed since then, we’ve expanded our vision of service to over 10 different dealerships in the area. We’ve done this all without compromising our vision and mission, because we know it’s our commitment to excellence that has allowed us to reach the level of success we’ve been fortunate enough to achieve.


    As a Body Technician at Checkered Flag, you will be at the forefront of the automotive industry. You will have the opportunity to work with the latest equipment and technology in state-of-the-art facilities.  



    The Checkered Flag Body Shop is under new management and is looking for a master class “A” Autobody Technician/Body Shop Foreman.


    As a Body Technician, each day will bring new opportunities, but you will always be involved in:

    • Perform work as outlined on repair estimate assigned with efficiency and accuracy, in accordance with dealership and factory standards.
    • Advise Collision Consultant immediately if additional work or parts are needed, if work outlined is not needed, or if repairs cannot be completed within the time promised
    • Learning new product and technical information and techniques to stay proficient in automotive parts


    We are looking for someone who is high energy, driven, and has proven customer service skills. A successful candidate will be highly detail-oriented with solid organizational and time-management skills, possess excellent communication and interpersonal skills, along with strong customer service and active-listening abilities. 


    Applicants must have at least 8 years of experience, excellent references and produce only first class work.  Training is a plus to include either I-CAR, ASE, manufacturer training, Chief certifications or a combination of the above. Position requires attention to detail, ability to “blueprint” the repair to the most minor components and fasteners, ability to work on high line vehicles with prompt cycle times, and excellent communication skills with management, the crew, and insurance representatives.

    The ideal candidate is someone with a winning attitude who sees obstacles as opportunities.

    • High school diploma or equivalent
    • I-CAR, ASE, manufacturer training and/or Chief certifications
    • Someone with dealership experience preferred
    • Passion to change a onetime customer into a “Customer for Life”
