CarMax is searching for a Retail Manager – Buyer in Memphis, TN.

As part of our CarMax store Purchasing Team, a Buyer in Training (BIT) is responsible for conducting vehicle appraisals, coordinating on-site auctions, and attending various regional auctions. Our unique retail environment allows BITs to train on a rotating weekly 40 hour schedule. BITs will spend 8 to12 months learning the dynamics of the used car wholesale industry using various resources to determine the price that CarMax should pay for a used vehicle. BITs track their purchases through the quality inspection and reconditioning process and set pricing based on sales data and competitive analysis. ┬áThis position provides a unique mix of analytical and physical challenges due to the fast-paced nature of the business, and approximately 50% of a buyer’s time is spent outdoors in a “hands-on” environment.
