We have a responsibility to each other and to our communities to serve others. Here, community outreach is a core value that goes beyond a statement of intent. It’s our enduring acts of kindness and compassion that represent who we are as individuals and what we stand for as a company. It’s ingrained in our culture, encouraged by our leadership, driven by our team members and enthusiastically embraced – at every level – throughout the year.

We believe community service should be fun, authentic, meaningful, and effective. That the experience should live within and inspire more. Above all, it should be celebrated. At Cox Automotive, we are making inroads – with each other, with our clients and with our communities.

Matthew Zerkus created and designed a preferred supplier scorecard to track contract service-level agreements for our suppliers.

“I had a great hands-on experience and networking opportunities. During my internship, I gained valuable project management knowledge by doing meaningful work to drive results for the company. My advice for incoming interns, is to come in with an open mind, don’t be afraid to ask questions and get your name out there! You wouldn’t have considered this internship if you didn’t see yourself at this company somewhere down the road!”


Briana Daugherty created content and worked on communication projects for digital channels at Cox Automotive.

“I had a great manager who encouraged me to step outside of my department to meet other people and learn as much as possible about the company. It was great to be encouraged to grow, and leadership was very available for either shadowing or meeting up for coffee. Being able to learn from leaders really gave me insights I wouldn’t have made otherwise.”

    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Cox Automotive.


    The Recruiter reached out to me by email for an initial phone interview. They asked for a time and a day that I would be available to discuss my experience and the opportunity. I responded half an hour later with a day and a time. The Recruiter never called me. I emailed after what was supposed to be our interview asking them to let me know if I missed something or if I needed to provide anything further on my end. No response to that email as well.
