    Pros

    Great business model which is never compromised. Honesty and integrity are very much part of the company culture.

    Cons

    Management by "checklist". Execution of company principles at the store level is mediocre. "Treating Associates with Respect" is an operating principle but frequently disregarded by store management. Associates are denigrated in front of employees and in public arenas. Store managers create an environment of intimidation and hostility, reprimanding employees without listening to or soliciting all the facts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Teach your managers to listen; not have knee jerk reactions to situations without listening to and collecting all the facts. Teach store managers to employ common sense rather than follow robotic instructions that satisfy check list requirements.

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

    Pros

    Working for a dealership is entertaining with constant new challenges and CarMax allows employees to do this without using shady or sleazy tactics, people are great and management is fair.

    Cons

    The commissions are on the low side and there is not enough traffic to sustain the income promised in the interview.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More local advertising may be beneficial
