Life at KAR: What to Expect When Applying for a Job

Searching for a job? KAR Global and our subsidiaries only accept applications via our official channels—so before you hand over your personal info, be sure it’s the real deal. Visit karglobal.com/careers to apply, and remember:

✔️ Emails from our team will come from our official email domains including @karglobal.com, @adesa.ca, @autofinance.com, @backlotcars.com, @traderev.com and @openlane.com.

✔️ We want to meet the real you! Our interviews are conducted by phone, video or in person depending on the role, and the process typically includes conversations with a recruiter or member of our Human Resources team, the hiring manager and possibly some of the people you’d work with.

✔️ Did a recruiter just slide into your DMs? A legitimate recruiter will keep the direct messages via job board or social media brief and quickly move the conversation over to their company email. At KAR, we will always schedule your interview with a calendar invite from one of our official company email domains.

❌ Our team will never email you from @gmail.com, @yahoo.com, @outlook.com, @aol.com, @hotmail.com, @usa.com or anything similar. Please note that info.karglobal@usa.com and karglobal00@accountant.com do not belong to KAR and are not legitimate.

❌ While we may communicate with you via SMS/text, we won’t interview you via text, chat or instant message.

We’ll never ask for payment as part of the application or hiring process. We’ll provide any necessary job-related equipment directly to successful candidates.

❌ Never share SSN/SIN, bank, financial or other sensitive personal information during the interview process.
