Pit boss. Coach. Crew Leader.  The titles may be different, but they’re all synonymous with someone who leads a team of high-performance drivers in the auto industry, whether it’s Daytona, Indianapolis, or the world’s largest, most comprehensive wholesale vehicle marketplace. Manheim’s massive auction lot is your playing field. Your driving teams – rookies and pros alike – will look to you for the second-to-second strategic decisions that will catapult us into the lead by safely moving thousands of vehicles for our auctions. But that’s only a part of how you’ll drive our success.

Job Responsibilities:

  • Train new drivers and help them find their place on your tight-knit team.

  • Coach and monitor all drivers on safety procedures.

  • Make sure each auction is adequately staffed and assist in communicating schedules and assignments.

  • Keep an auction day playbook with each Manheim vehicle stock number and lot location, ensuring each vehicle is where it should be when it needs to be.

  • Collaborate with your lot manager and quadrant coordinator to move vehicles and people to ensure each auction operates like a well-oiled high-performance engine, purring smoothly, safely, and without incident.

  • Transport drivers, customers, and employees to locations as needed and on schedule.

  • Perform daily van maintenance, including cleaning, and routine oil changes and upkeep, on vans.

  • OR the right candidate could also have a different combination, such as any level degree/certification beyond a HS diploma/GED in a related discipline.

  • OR 5 years’ experience in a related field.

  • Valid driver’s license and safe driving record.

  • Ability to drive automatic and standard transmission vehicles.

  • Basic mechanical experience (changing flat tires, checking fluids, jump-starting vehicles, etc.).

  • Overtime may be required on occasion.

Physical Requirements:

  • Able to lift at least 15 lbs.

  • This is a physically demanding, fast-paced job in a chaotic environment. You’ll need to sit, stand, walk, kneel, squat, reach, hear, and talk for extended times. 

  • Ability to work in varying weather conditions, tolerate elevated noise levels and ongoing car exhaust fumes. 

  • Vision: ability to see close, distance, color variations, depth perception, and adjust focus.
