Current Employee - Manager in South Miami, FL
Current Employee - Manager in South Miami, FL

I have been working at CarMax full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Great pay. Prospects for new managers that are just starting with the company should take advantage of the growth that is currently taking place. If you can get on the bandwagon of the new and improved "small" store concept, you could be promoted quickly.

Cons

Benefits - (insurance, stock,,,,etc..) have went down considerably the past year.

    Current Employee - Senior Sales Consultant in Dallas, TX
    Current Employee - Senior Sales Consultant in Dallas, TX

    I have been working at CarMax part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The sales team is friendly. Basic respect amongst co-workers. Not many pros anymore.

    Cons

    Micro-managed, over-trained, oppressed. Sales Consultants income cut in half in the last six months due to daily mandatory trainings you are not paid for, nor are needed. Trainings go on for hours and and are basic, boring, and rudimentary. Perhaps, a new sales associate, who is also new to sales, could learn from them but most are offended.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get Austin Ligon back. Go back to the old sales process. Let your associates breathe.

    I worked at CarMax full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They are closed for Easter, Christmas and Thanksgiving....those are the highlights.

    Cons

    Selling or trying to sell vehicles that do not meet the standards as set by the company. Oh wait...the company lowered the standards so it could be even more profitable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to trying to be better than the traditional dealers.
