    AWESOME Place to work

    Sales Consultant (Former Employee) Albuquerque, NM

    ProsGreat corporate environment, most of the co-workers and management are real team players, more than most. Casual uniforms, great internal discounts.

    ConsWork/Life balance. If you don't make the commission you need before pay day, you'll work open to close every day to get it. During those bad times, if you divide out your pay by the hour, it's very low.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe a team player as much as you are a coach.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great culture, but losing its direction

    Sales Consultant (Former Employee) Albuquerque, NM

    ProsGood training. Good feedback system. Positive encouragement. Decent but expensive benefits. Excellent website and tools to work with.

    ConsCarmax is making as much or even more per car than reputable dealers, but pays its sales people about 20% of what they should be making per car. Also, their mechanic shops have cut a lot of corners + the mechanics were converted to hourly, effectively cutting their average pay by about $10k annual. Nothing sucks like telling a customer how great quality Carmax cars are only to have your customer angrily walk out because the car is not of acceptable quality.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay your people what they are worth and bring back the quality and prices that made Carmax a name worthy of respect.
