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

Pros

Big company, lots of room to grow if you are acceptable of relocation. Very good benefits with average cost. Used to be a fantastic company to work for, however as they get larger they give less to the associates.

Cons

most training is self taught, little effort from local managers to push development. Less benefits and morale activities as the company grows

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

    Pros

    Steady work resulting in steady pay that can be counted on. Great retirement and matching from company. The shop is air conditioned and the shop equipment is up to date and top notch for the most part. Co-workers tend to be good, decent people because of pretty in depth screening on the front end.

    Cons

    Sick pay for production jobs is at a lower rate than your normal rate - not a big deal, but just seems like it would be an easy fix. The pay scale is on the low side - having said that the work is very steady.

    Carmax harasses you to leave if you actually have a need to use their insurance.

    I worked at CarMax full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    That I am not there any longer

    Cons

    If you have high medical bills, whether due to your own medical issues or that of a covered family member, you will quickly find out that you are inferior in your job performance and you need to go.
