Job Board FAQs

Got questions? We’ve got answers.

This section provides answers to the most frequently asked questions about AIA’s Job Board.


Why use AIA’s job board?

AIA is connected to major Canadian schools and technical colleges where a great pool of talent resides. Each new job posting is communicated to these colleges and other stakeholders through various channels. As a member, you can take advantage of AIA’s job board at no charge at this time. As we grow our network of job seekers, AIA may move to a fee for service, although for members, this fee will remain nominal.

What types of job opportunities can I post?

Any job opportunities available within the aftermarket sector and that are located in Canada can be posted. They include executive level positions and technicians – and everything in between. The automotive aftermarket is the part of the automotive industry concerned with the manufacturing, re-manufacturing, distribution, wholesaling, and retailing of all vehicle replacement parts, accessories, tools, equipment, chemicals and services, except those products that are used as original equipment to manufacture new vehicles. The traditional aftermarket includes service repair facilities – both banner aligned and independent, collision repair facilities as well as mass merchandiser facilities.

I am not an AIA member, can I use the job board to post a job opportunity?

Yes. AIA’s job board aims to facilitate recruitment within the automotive aftermarket sector. If your company or business is part of this sector, you can submit a job posting at a non-member price of $200 (plus taxes) per posting. AIA offers a 50% discount to service and repair facilities within the aftermarket (includes mechanical and collision repair facilities). Recruitment or staffing agencies are welcome to contact AIA to discuss posting opportunities. How long will my posting be visible to job seekers? Your job posting will initially be visible to job seekers for 30 days from the day of posting. The deadline can be extended or shortened by you at any time using the job board’s dashboard.

I don’t know if I am a member. How do I find out?

Do you screen applications?

No. AIA does not screen applications. Job seekers will send their resumes through our job board directly to you. As an employer, once you upload your job posting, you will be able to access applications on your dashboard. When a job seeker submits an application to your job posting you will be notified by email.

Does my job posting show immediately?

Not quite. The AIA team reviews all postings to ensure compliance with the job posting policy. Job postings that are submitted over the weekend or after hours will be approved as soon as possible during regular working hours. Our regular operating hours are Mon-Fri (8:30 am. to 4:30 pm EST). Rest assured that AIA aims to approve postings in a timely manner.

Can I post a link to my company HR site on my posting?

Yes. You can add any links to the job posting by including it in the dedicated URL field. If you wish for applicants to only submit applications through your own websites via your link, please indicate this in your posting.
