La Description

It seems the job title Inspector can cover everything from investigating crime at Scotland Yard to confirming Fruit of the Looms is ready for wearing. You'll be happy to know this Inspector job doesn't require either of those duties. Instead, it's a cool gig inspecting incoming vehicles for safety and quality before Manheim (part of the Cox family of businesses) turns them around for auction. So, if you've got an eye for all that's right and wrong with everything on wheels, here's the deal

New Hire Sign-on Bonus $750.00 will be paid at 90 days of continued employment with Manheim

What You'll Do

You're the subtle studier of scratches, the one who dusts for dents. But it's about more than body damage. When auctioning a vehicle, everything from the A/C to the engine has to be humming nicely before sale day. You help us get there, by identifying the flaws and faults, assessing repairs and costs, and documenting it all so we can turn every VIN into a winning number.

Here's a breakdown of how you'll rock your role:

Key Responsibilities

  • Works closely with a mentor/trainer while processing through the apprenticeship program for daily guidance and learning new skills.
  • Becomes familiar with auto industry inspection concepts and methodologies.
  • Gains knowledge of inspection guidelines and processes.
  • Inspects and records a vehicle's interior condition, including seats, dash, safety features, options, etc.
  • Inspects and records vehicle's exterior condition, including tires, frame, glass, panels, and mechanical components.
  • Completes and verifies data entry in support of vehicle condition, reporting damage, necessary repairs, and operability/inoperability.
  • Works in a team environment.
  • Learns and applies company and industry standards and inspection procedures.
  • Performs work in a safe and conscientious manner as directed by management and the company's safety standards.
  • Interacts and coordinates with company and location associates while performing day-to-day work.
  • Performs other duties as assigned by mentor, supervisor, or manager
  • Works in outdoor environment and possible occasional inclement weather.
  • What's In It for You?

  • You'll want to inspect this section closely, as we've done our best to provide you with the kind of incentives and opportunities that make you feel appreciated for what you do
  • You'll be rewarded with competitive pay and generous incentives. If you're full-time, there are tons of other perks you've come to expect (e.g., 401k + company match, comprehensive medical benefits, etc.) and others you may not (e.g., tuition reimbursement for academic pursuits, adoption assistance, paid time off to volunteer, childcare and eldercare resources, pet insurance (crazy cool, right?) and much more).
  • You'll work in a culture that truly values your role and you as a person. We get that recognition is important, and Cox works to uplift those who help make us successful every day. You'll be part of an organization where relationships are crafted with care and successes celebrated with high fives!
  • Boundless career opportunities. Cox provides lateral and upward movement across a diverse family of businesses from automotive and broadband communications to cleantech and esports. Well, support you on your journey to explore your passions and evolve your plan. Wherever your vision takes you, well help you get there. And, in this role, as you grow your skills there are advanced Inspector roles potentially waiting for you.
  • Become a part of a movement for good at a company making bold social and environmental commitments. Diversity Inc. recently named Cox a Top 3 Company for Philanthropy (2019). This is a place you can feel good about working because you'll be a part of growing the good in the communities where we work and live.

We hope your inspection was a positive one and you found no missing parts to this list of the ways we'll reward you for your outstanding work.

Who You Are?

If the devil truly is in the details, you'll find him, because you're all about the details. You're the kind of person who straightens a crooked picture because your eye tells you that's how it needs to be. Multi-tasking? Multi-yes! You're comfy behind the wheel of all kinds of vehicles and equally at ease with getting down (or up) to study all angles of any given set of wheels.



  • High school diploma or GED.
  • Basic computer skills.
  • Valid driver's license and safe driving record.
  • Ability to drive standard and automatic transmission vehicles.


  • Must be detail-oriented, accurate, and able to multi-task.
  • General knowledge of mechanical and automotive bodywork.
  • Previous body shop and mechanical experience.

Physical requirements:

  • Ability to stand, walk, reach, talk, hear, stoop, kneel, crouch, and climb.
  • Vision requirements: close, distance, depth perception, and color variations.
  • Must be able to work in varying weather conditions.
