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

Pros

Great coworkers. Feeling out all the various new cars coming into inventory.

Cons

Micro-Managed is an understatement. Constant criticism from management. Underpaid. Require multiple unpaid morning huddles each week. Sales Managers giving away deals to meet budget. The amount of work does not reflect in the pay that we make.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Restructure the pay scale. Consultants that average 10 cars a month should make at least 40k a year. Sorry but less than that is not acceptable. Not here in California. And not for me.

Doesn't Recommend
Positive Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Company has a great culture and desire to be a good employer. Fortune 100 Top Company to work for.
