La PINE, Ore. (KTVZ) -- If you're looking to make some extra cash, and know a certified technician seeking work, a La Pine business is looking for help -- and willing to pay big to get it.
Integrity Auto Services is growing and offering a "reward" of $5,000 to the person who refers the right technician for the position.
Owner Jeremy Johnson is an Oregon native and family man who has made La Pine his home for the last 17 years. He said Wednesday he believes that Integrity is not just about honesty and trustworthiness. He explains integrity as two-fold and shares the other part of his definition.
"It's to be complete or whole, and by that, we mean somebody who can be of great service to the client and be very skilled at what they do," he said.
The mission statement for the auto service also makes it clear that the business is not just looking for any certified technician, but one who values morals just as much as performance.
Johnson has also had a deep interest in working on cars.
“I was working on cars, far before I was legal to drive them, really," he said.
But working on cars wasn’t the driving factor that prompted Johnson to move to La Pine.
“What brought me to La Pine is that I helped start a church over here, Calvary Chapel,” he said.
In due time, he decided to start an auto service business where Integrity became the highest order of operation. He's enthusiastic to keep building upon the company's foundation and is looking forward to choosing the right person to come on board.
According to the company's website, if the the job requirements are met, half the reward will be provided on the technician's first day of work. The other half will be given after a 90-day probationary period.
