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

Pros

Good Benefits, exempt employees are engaged in the business.

Cons

The company punishes those who will not relocate from big market stores and hand out bonuses to managers in store that do significantly less work in new markets off the backs of big market employees. Company shows a lot of favoritism behind closed doors. Employees are significantly underpaid compared to similar jobs at competing companies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

retain your talent by paying what the market dictates their talent deserves.

    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
