Do you want to work in an exciting and expanding career field with lots of upward potential? One where you don’t have to go back to school or spend months in a training program to go to work after you get your DD-214? Then CarMax might be a great choice for your first post-military job.
In order to meet the CarMax standard, a vehicle has to undergo an extensive evaluation. Each vehicle will receive what is essentially an interior and exterior detail. This is where the reconditioning associates come in.
Each CarMax retail location is served by a reconditioning facility. These are large buildings with large parking lots where vehicles from across the country are brought in, evaluated, and put into a process that typically takes less than 48 hours.
The focus is on efficiency. As a vehicle snakes its way through the warehouse, the reconditioning associates focus on a particular area (the right side passenger compartment, for example) and use provided tools to ensure that the vehicles meet the CarMax Quality standards. Reconditioning facilities are unique in that they are climate controlled, clean, and have music playing in the background. It’s a pleasant, high-energy work environment where time passes quickly.
Starting out as an entry-level reconditioning associate can lead to promotions into leadership roles or even crossing over to another function like Purchasing or Business Office operations. Some of these roles are part-time to begin with and can lead to full-time opportunities. On a tour of a reconditioning facility, Hirepurpose met an operations manager in charge of a crew of 75 associates and millions of dollars in inventory who was a former Army staff sergeant. The career potential for vets at CarMax is very real.
