    Pros

    Carmax is a fun place to work, flexible hours, and great benefits.

    Current Employee - Buyer Assistant in Irving, TX

    I have been working at CarMax full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good starting pay, good benifits

    Cons

    work in any and all weather, rain or snow. being an assistant is a "grey area" for promotion. Tons of office politics and gives you the run around. every store is run different.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be open and honest with your employees. quite giving them a sence of false hope. rather than ignore the issues in front of you, deal with them
