CarMax, the way your career should be!
CarMax Strategic Sourcing & Procurement is seeking a talented individual with a passion for supply chain management and supplier relationship management for a paid summer internship at our Home Office in Richmond, Virginia. The intern will be responsible for securing housing and daily transportation (no public transportation is available to our Home Office).

What is CarMax?

  • A great place to work. We're proud to be one of FORTUNE®'s "100 Best Companies to Work For." We have a fun and casual environment with perks like an on-campus fitness center and café, and everyday casual attire.

As the nation's largest retailer of used cars, we currently have over 200 stores in more than 95 U.S. markets, more than $15 billion in annual sales, and an overwhelmingly positive consumer response. But the biggest opportunities lie ahead: we hold only a small share of the late-model used car market, allowing room for exponential growth.
