Carmax from the POV of a part-time BOA

Business Office Associate (Current Employee) Oklahoma City, OK

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.

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