Current Employee - Business Office Associate in Midlothian, VA

I have been working at CarMax full-time (less than an year)

Pros

The training is top notch and very thorough. They provide regular feedback, both developmental and positive (although they really push the positive feedback). If you have the talent, they will let you grow as much and as fast as you can handle.

Cons

Inconsistencies with management, varying methods and processes depending on store. Communication can be lacking between departments.

    I have been working at CarMax part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Decent starting pay rate
    -Flexible hours for part time
    -Get to drive some awesome cars

    Cons

    -Standards will be "lowered" in order to meet production goals
    -Inventory has far too many responsibilities for one department
    -Work is outside so be prepared to be jumping in cars that have 140 degree plus interior temperatures
    -At my store, overtime is not allowed and will/can be a punishable offense
    -Half the time, our department is missing materials that are needed to do job
    -Inventory department is a dead end job with little chance of career advancement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pitch in when production is falling behind instead of telling staff to make sure everything "passes"
