AUTOMOTIVE DETAILER / LOT ATTENDANT
At Carvana, we sell cars but we're not salespeople. Since 2013, we've been making it our mission to change the way people buy cars by removing the painful process of the dealership experience and replacing it with a seamless and convenient online platform. For more information on Carvana and our mission, sneak a peek at our company introduction video.
Our quality promise is simple: we won't sell a car to a customer that we wouldn't sell to our own mom. Period. To make sure our cars are in first-rate condition, we've built multiple vehicle Reconditioning Centers around the country, where our cars are inspected, perfected, and photographed before reaching the Carvana website. Using our Carvana Certified 150-point inspection process, we're able to verify that every vehicle meets our rigorous mechanical and cosmetic standards.
We strive to provide only the highest quality vehicles to our customers in our mission to deliver a no-hassle, better car buying experience. We are actively looking for passionate and talented individuals who can help us deliver on that promise.
