The Richmond, Virginia, used-car retailer said Jan. 23 that it is recruiting for positions in sales and service operations, including detailers and technicians, with additional positions in purchasing and the business office. Full- and part-time permanent positions with day and evening shifts will be available.

CarMax is looking for candidates who are dependable, team-oriented, possess strong customer service skills and have high integrity,” Pam Hill, director of selection and recruiting for CarMax, said in a written statement. “We also look for individuals who have a willingness to work the varied hours of a retail work environment.”

CarMax CEO Tom Folliard said last year that the company plans to open as many as 55 used-car stores through February 2016, with 10 stores opened in its fiscal year that begins March 1 and 10 to 15 stores in each of the three following fiscal years. CarMax now operates 107 used-car stores in 52 markets.
