I have been working at CarMax full-time for 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 for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Used to be an excellent work environment, team building, managers interested in your career.

    Cons

    Inadequate training. Current focus is on text book type recurrent training instead of hands on. Senior and Regional management too far removed from the sales floor to see what works effectively. Definite double standards between management and sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out on the floor and sell occasionally, it is the only way to see for yourself what actually works.
