Online car warehouse holds hiring event in Tooele City

Carvana, an online car buying and selling business, recently finished construction on its facility in Tooele at the Industrial Depot. 

The company now plans on hiring 220 individuals to join their team with an hiring event on Wednesday and Thursday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Best Western hotel in Tooele City at 365 N. Main Street.

Carvana has an array of open positions, with interviews conducted on-site and same-day offers planned for the mass-hiring event, according to David Klemow, public relations specialist for Carvana.

Some positions are eligible for sign-on bonuses and relocation assistance.

“More than just jobs or seasonal gigs, positions inside our new state-of-the-art Tooele inspection center are career pathing opportunities that allow qualified candidates to gain valuable on-the-job knowledge in the automotive industry, even without prior experience,” Kelmow said. “From there, Carvana team members can explore several different career paths within the company, with cross-training programs available to help team members branch out and pursue their interests.”

Positions open include auto body repair, auto painting, automotive repair, and auto detailing and inventory associates.  

Currently, Carvana has one shift opening Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. and they offer full time, free medical benefits, and paid time off.

Pay rates will be discussed during the hiring event.

Carvana was founded in 2012 in Phoenix, Arizona to make online car buying and selling easier.

“By removing the traditional dealership infrastructure and replacing it with technology and exceptional customer service, Carvana offers consumers an intuitive and convenient online car buying, selling, and financing platform,” said Klemow.

After being announced in 2020, Carvana’s location in Tooele, built on a 107-acre plot at 299 Lodestone Way in the Industrial Depot, will officially open next month.

“Before the move to Tooele, we strategically determined which communities to invest in based on several factors, ultimately looking to both serve as many customers as possible with a great selection of cars at great prices but also to stimulate the local economies that we join as well,” Klemow said.

The company won’t sell cars at their new location but will inspect, recondition, and photograph cars for sale.
