CARLOS (CHARLIE) JAIME
Senior Auto Technician
Charlie’s upbeat personality is well-suited for his position as Parts Manager. His primary responsibility is to order all of the parts and supplies needed by the Hillside auto technicians. He relishes the “adventure” of tracking down unusual, hard-to-find items and parts for older cars.
In addition, he does oil changes; rotates, repairs and replaces tires; books appointments; and gives rides to customers.
When he’s not at work at Hillside Auto Repair in Torrance, Charlie enjoys racing his fixed-gear bike and playing soccer.
He has two pit bulls and a chihuahua. Guess who’s the alpha dog? Yep, the chihuahua.
He likes listening to all types of music but is especially fond of Roy Orbison, Patsy Cline and rockabilly artists.
Ask him what’s his favorite type of food and he says with a smile, “There’s nothing better than Mom’s cooking.”
