Carvana, the online used-car dealer, plans to hire 350 people to work at its $40 million inspection and reconditioning center under construction in southwest Oklahoma City.

The Arizona-based company received approval Thursday to participate in the Oklahoma Quality Jobs Program for those employed at its new reconditioning center. The 196,141-square-foot facility, on 100 acres at 5500 S Rockwell Ave., will be part of Carvana’s national logistics network.

Details of the performance-based incentive package were not revealed.

The state’s Quality Jobs Program provides a type of reimbursement for companies’ payroll expenses. The program does this by providing quarterly cash payments, worth up to 5% of new payrolls, for up to 10 years.

The program is considered one of Oklahoma’s oldest and most successful incentive programs, and has transferred hundreds of millions of dollars to participating companies since it was launched. A 2017 report from the Department of Commerce showed 780 companies have enrolled since the program began, creating a payroll of over $22.3 billion.
