VIP Tires & Service adds five jobs in Presque Isle
PRESQUE ISLE, Maine — VIP Tires & Service has added five new members to its auto service team in Presque Isle. The five technicians and managers were previously employed in the auto center at the Sears in Presque Isle, which officially closed last Saturday. Sears announced in October its store at Aroostook Centre Mall would close in January 2015.
“My team and I are very thankful that VIP stepped up to give us this opportunity” said Eric Miranda, the Sears Auto Center manager. “This means so much to our families, especially as we near the holiday season.”
A VIP representative said the hiring of the extra staff will allow the company to expand its hours of operation. The company also hopes to expand the business in Presque Isle during the coming year to take the auto service center from five to 10 service bays.
