Tales from the road Buzzwords don’t make up a culture. Shared stories do.
Our culture is an accumulation of the shared stories employees tell. From our humble beginnings to the people that make us who we are today, read on to learn firsthand about life at DriveTime and where you fit into the story.
Headquartered in Tempe, Arizona, DriveTime is the largest privately owned used car sales and finance company in the country. With more than 130 dealerships, 3 operations centers and 20 reconditioning centers across the nation, our 5,000+ employees are focused on getting the right customer in the right car, at the right terms.
Starting with selection at auction, DriveTime sources over 200 different vehicle makes and models. Each vehicle is then sent to the reconditioning centers for inspection before being delivered to the dealership. Once on the lot, our no-haggle pricing model and belief in transparency provide a pressure-free sales environment for every customer.
Using our proprietary scoring technology and financing model, we help our customers get into the car that's right for them, regardless of their credit situation. With over 25 years of industry experience, and our dedication to streamlining the purchase process, we're redefining what it means to buy and finance a used car.Learn About Life in Phoenix
Doing the right thing is our thing
“What we’re doing is so unique in the market. We are providing the opportunity for reliable transportation for consumers that most businesses shut the door on and say no to. Our responsibility is to get that message out there, that we can help, and we can offer a great customer experience on top of it.”Kyle T. - Director of Market Strategy
We aren’t afraid to take the wheel
“So I started as an intern actually which was a little weird because I had already graduated but I took it on, 10 weeks. And then…you know…that passion everyone talks about kind of came about and within 10 weeks I got hired on full-time and have been able to progress my career ever since.”Emily M. - Project Manager
No matter your make or model, you are welcome on our lot
“Being able to collaborate and to feel like I have the ability to grow and…kind of use resources and processes and ideas that I thought I would really never use before has been a lot of fun and a really great experience.”Aubari G. - Coordinator
We carpool to a shared destination
“The support system here is great. Wherever I go, if I ever need help, everyone and anyone is willing to help. So it’s definitely a great work environment to be in, especially when it comes to the support and the knowledge they give me.”Cesar L. - Customer Service Rep
Doing good feels good.
It’s not business – it’s personal. As part of the communities in which we live, DriveTime and its employees actively seek out opportunities to volunteer and make a difference. We are honored to support and participate in events for Women in Blue, PRIDE, St. Vincent de Paul, Wishes for Teachers, and many others.
We hire our heroes
We are proud to support our nation’s heroes and their families. Their commitment and dedication are valuable traits we look for, and we are just as committed to easing their transition into a new career.
Investing in interns
Our interns are the future of our workforce. Our 10-week internship program provides graduating students the real work exposure needed to advance in their field of choice.
