    DriveTime needs YOU, an Automotive leader:

     

    What’s under the hood:

    DriveTime is the nation’s largest used car retailer and finance company, focused on helping people find and finance used vehicles (trust us, it’s more exciting than it sounds).  An innovative company who has rebuilt, retooled, redreamed and reconfigured the way people think about buying cars; breaking apart from the industry’s status quo for more than 14 years. All the way from purchasing vehicles, inspecting and selling; to financing, servicing and warranties – when it comes to owning a vehicle - we know what’s up! As motivated as we are to take our customer on the path to ownership, we are just as focused on taking our employees on the path to owning their careers.

    That’s Nice, But What Does Leading the Line Mean?

    In short…… Supervising and motivating a team of Automotive Technicians by reviewing their reconditioning repair work completed on inventory vehicles in preparation for delivery to dealerships.

    The Details… In long 

    • Managing the movement of cars into and out of the Inspection Center safely for repairs, while meeting or exceeding set production and quality goals.
    • Reviewing and approving identified mechanical and physical defects of incoming inventory.
    • Leading and training a team of Auto technicians to complete repairs effectively, minimizing re-checks and delays in production.
    • Work in ways to decrease possibility of injury to yourself or other team members in the shop due to spills or other preventable hazardous conditions.
    • Performing other related duties as assigned and conduct business within DriveTime policies and procedures.

    So, What’s in our Candidate Inspection? 

    • Top of the “Line” communicator. Ability to talk and write with confidence, charisma and competence for a wide variety of audiences including management.
    • Master of managing. Effectively manage and work with all levels of employees and customers.
    • Takes a hold of the wheel.  You’ll need to take the initiative and be comfortable doing so.
    • Quality decision maker. Good decisions are made based on knowledge.  We’ll need you to gather all the facts and take them all into consideration when making decisions.
    • Listeners…Not Hearers Someone that seeks to understand, not hears to reply.
    • A mind for the details. Okay we know “detail-oriented” is on about every job description – but we really mean it! 
    • Plays well with others. You will be working in a high-functioning team environment.  We work together in order to win together.

    The Specifics - What do you need?
