I have been working at CarMax part-time (more than an year)

Pros

-The business office management team at this location is very good. They have found a good balance of working towards professional goals and maintaining a fun atmosphere at work.
 -I would consider myself friends with everyone in the office although I rarely spend time with co-workers outside of the work enviroment.
-I never "dread" work. I always seem to enjoy going to work. The only thing that ever makes a work day unpleasant is high volume of customers accompanied with low staff levels.
-This is a fairly low pressure job

Cons

-There will ALWAYS be drama. Especially when there are a lot of females. Usually I can always find someone talking about someone else.
-Turnover due to low pay and a lot of students coming and going in this job (this location is very close to two Universities)
-inadequate management. Carmax as a whole is expanding rapidly 2011 and beyond and already management is being stretched; it remains to be seen if they can hire, promote, and train the management force needed to nearly double their number of stores over the next five years.
