Vehicle Appraiser/ Buyer

McDonald Automotive/ Audi Denver - Littleton, CO (30+ days ago)


The McDonald Automotive group is expanding and seeking to add a Vehicle appraiser/buyer to our team! Some Automotive industry employment experience is required, though management experience is not necessary. This is not a traditional “used car manager” position, as our team does not sell cars. The Vehicle Acquisition Department is responsible for appraising vehicles, purchasing vehicles from wholesale auctions, purchasing vehicles from the public via our cash offer buying center, writing the online vehicle descriptions each vehicle, approving repair/reconditioning work to be done for each car, and quite a bit more!

With six separate dealerships, the McDonald Automotive Vehicle Acquisition Department is responsible for overseeing over 500 pre-owned vehicles at any given time. The job of the appraiser/buyer is fun, fast paced, and requires great attention to detail. If you love the auto industry, but are looking for something a bit different, then you could be the candidate we are looking for!

Successful candidates in the past have had experience as automotive salespersons, service advisors, or managers. The keys to success in this opportunity are:

  • A solid understanding of cars (makes, models, and general mechanical terms and meaning)
  • Ability to multitask and handle bursts of activity
  • Attention to detail and ability to work at a computer for most of the day
  • Great sense of teamwork and desire to go above and beyond to help the team reach collective goals
  • Above average writing and grammar—this position is responsible for writing our personalized vehicle descriptions
  • Working knowledge of the automotive sales industry—even though you won’t be selling cars, this position is integral to the process and must understand how it works

Compensation is dependent upon experience and performance. Salary plus monthly achievement bonus. Compensation levels range from $50k to 100k+.

What We Offer:

  • We are family owned for over 50 years, providing excellent opportunities for advancement and growth within our multi-franchise company of dealerships.
  • A highly competitive compensation package.
  • A professional, fun and friendly working environment for both employees and customers.
  • Medical, Dental and Vision Insurance Available
  • 401K Retirement
  • Flexible Medical Spending Accounts
  • Supplemental Life Insurance
  • Short Term and Long Term Disability Packages
