"I love what I do and I love the people I work with. This job is never boring. I come in and find something different and something new to do everyday. This job is always fresh and always new... even after eight years."- Janice, Office Supervisor, Nashville
Copart was founded in 1982 by CEO Willis J. Johnson, a true American success story. Johnson grew up learning about business from his father – an entrepreneur who dabbled in everything from dairy farming to running restaurants and building houses.
Johnson took that entrepreneurial spirit, along with a strong work ethic and a passion for change, and started Copart with just one salvage yard in California.

Life at Copart
"This is a big company and it's a stable company. It's always a good atmosphere. I really enjoy my job and I like to talk to people all the time. I never wake up and don't want to go to work in the morning. That's rare for most people."- Erin, Dispatcher, Springfield
"The two things I enjoy most working at Copart are the people and the opportunity. There are no shortage of 'hellos' and 'good mornings' when you walk through the door! It makes it quite easy to come to work, because I enjoy what I do, and the people are great too! Opportunities present themselves also. I started as a title clerk at Yard 1, went to the MIS Helpdesk, became supervisor, and now I am a Business Analyst in the MIS QA department!"- Vincent, Business Analyst, MIS QA
"The people are fantastic, that's the most important thing. All the people are super. It's the people that make the company great."- Helen, Billing, Ocala
"I like the corporate philosophy - that we are a family and help each other out to accomplish good things. I feel like what I do is important and my work gets noticed. That's very fulfilling. This is the best place that I have worked and it all goes back to the people. We are always coached and given good feedback."- Barbi, Office Supervisor, Des Moines
"One of the things that really motivates me and makes me love my job is a positive working environment. My manager here and many other managers I have had the pleasure of working with are well balanced and let you know when you are doing a good job. It really is a wonderful company to work for and I feel now that I have a career and not a job."- Ken, System Engineer, MIS
"I like the work that we do here. It makes it easy to come in to work every morning. I talk with different personalities and different people everyday... it's very interesting."- Phil, Dispatcher, Kansas City
"I like the area where our yard is located - it's just 10 minutes from where I live so I don't have a commute. I really like the people I work with. We all know each other so well because we have all been here so long. It's really a family atmosphere here. We help each other out. We are a team."- Vera, CSR, San Jose
"I like the challenges that Copart affords us. I am the kind of person that needs to be challenged and push the limit and Copart challenges me everyday. We are change-centric so just when you think things are starting to settle down, we go and buy some yards in the UK."- Thad, Equipment and Safety Manager
