Job clarity and realistic expectations of what you can expect as a Buyer Inspector.

Our Vehicle Inspection Specialists are the face of our company. They're the first people our suppliers/vendors meet when we come to get to get their vehicle inspected, and the last person our suppliers/vendors shake hands with once we've come to an agreement. In previous lives, they were trustworthy automotive technicians who could build a car from the ground up and believed in nothing but top-quality workmanship. They know a ton about cars, and love to talk about them. But instead of being know-it-alls, they act like teachers, explaining to our suppliers/vendors what they need to know in a way they can understand. They have boundless energy and work tirelessly to ensure suppliers/vendors get nothing but the best. Our inspectors are meticulous. Nothing gets by them. And they choose to treat our suppliers/vendors, and their cars, with great care, because it makes them happy.
