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

Pros

Good benefits and training. Great atmosphere, laid back and somewhat casual. CEO and top execs are very down to earth and came to our store and had a bbq with us. It was great, felt like a family.

Cons

Typical salaried job, coming in on your days off. Big corporate structure, bosses of bosses, etc. Some bureaucracy

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Able to have a bit more of a home life.

    I have been working at CarMax full-time (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.
