Bicycle Mechanic

Job description:

Being a bicycle mechanic at Republic is great! We like to work with our hands, be presented with a problem, and use deduction and tried and true methods to come up with a tangible result. We know a customer will enjoy riding most when their bike is working beautifully, and when the ideal service isn’t possible, given timing or budget, we pride ourselves in describing the issues clearly. We don’t withhold information or gloss over problems, but instead, use our experience and knowledge to educate, inform and help make a plan for future service. We understand the customer is entrusting us with a big part of their leisure and so we work their bicycles to  high standard, as if it were our own, or better. We are good at time management and juggling different tasks of varying priority. We like to be timely, but also be given enough time to do a great job. We work methodically because we will be interrupted and will need to continue from where we left off. We ride bikes and get amped on customers experiencing bikes the way we do!
If this sounds like you, then you should apply for this job!

Service Advisor

Job description:

Being a service advisor at Republic is great! We like to interact with customers, understand their needs as well as investigate what maintenance is due on the bike, and help them have a better cycling experience by quarter backing the service of their bicycle. We are the face of the service department and manage the service relationship with the customer from intake to delivery and follow-up. We enjoy diagnosing issues, asking probing questions, uncovering and identifying problems, writing up home run work orders for our fellow mechanics and knocking off a few quick repairs ourselves. We are knowledgeable about all mechanical aspects of the bicycle and experts at recommending the parts and service best suited for each customer / bike. We like knowing a customer’s bicycle is handed back working beautifully, and when the ideal service isn’t possible, given timing or budget, we pride ourselves in describing the issues clearly. We don’t withhold information or gloss over problems, but instead, use our experience and knowledge to educate, inform and help. We understand the customer is entrusting us with a big part of their leisure and so we treat their bikes with the highest level of care. We are good at time management and juggling different tasks of varying priority as well as adapting to the peaks and utilizing the lulls of the workday. We like to be thorough and work methodically to produce consistent and repeatable results. We ride bikes and get amped on customers experiencing bikes the way we do!
