    I have been working at CarMax for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Training program for someone coming in with no car sales experience is a Pro.

    Cons

    Doesn't matter what part of the country you work in, you get paid the same per car sold. So, if you lived in the South and moved to the North, you will not receive an adjustment for living in a higher cost of living area. LGM's do not take your management experience into consideration if you want to advance your career. I have seen people get promoted to Sales Managers because they sold over 800 cars even without a prior management background. This doesn't always make good leaders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HQ should take the Millions that the company makes and pay cost of living increases per cars sold for your employees instead of losing good people who struggle to earn a living. Corporate greed at it's best!!

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

    Pros

    positive environment, not simply sitting in a cubicle on a computer, meet lots of interesting people,

    Cons

    sales is commission only, lots of hours...no work/life balance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    allow for some schedule flexibility and employees would be more likely to stay longer
