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

Pros

Good company that treats you well. Learn new things and interact with different departments everyday. Learn a lot about cars. Manager level. People at the company are good.

Cons

High stress job; more physically than mentally. On your feet and sometimes in the elements for most of the day. Salary is on the lower side of the industry.

    I worked at CarMax part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Working with cars. Drive different cars. Indoor and outdoor work.

    Cons

    Working outside when it is too hot or too cold or too wet.
    Micromanaging managements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Micromanaging is ok but when it is done too much, then it shows that management does not trust the employees. If you cannot trust your employees, then you need to revamp the selection/hiring process.

    I worked at CarMax full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Coworkers are definitely the best part of working there.
    Nice to not have to worry about haggling

    Cons

    MANY factors affect paycheck but out of your control
    Do all the financing apps, etc yourself
    Pay has not changed but ONCE in 20 years!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less micro management. We don't need DAILY meetings for the most part, especially ones we aren't paid for.
