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

Pros

Fast pace environment, promote from within, lots of opportunity if willing to relocate. Overall, great business practice with the sales process.

Cons

With operations, work 60 - 70 hrs during peak times and 50 - 60 hrs the rest.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Wish they would look at manager to associate ratio with all the demands you ask of the ops mgmt team.

    Pros

    Cars if you like them, and some of the customers.

    Cons

    The managers pick a chosen few that are bound for success. The managers micro manage you. Upper management does care about employees. The pay sucks. The hours suck and there is no work life balance as you are requested to come in on your off days.the managers tend to promote those that either have 'extra curricular relations' with their subordinates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit acting like a wanna be paramilitary group.
