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

Pros

Great training, great team atmosphere. Outstanding support. Quality work life balance. Unique tools to the industry. Unique approach to used car industry. Excellent entry management training.

Compensation as compared to your earnings for the company are not aligned properly. Inadequate staffing for work load. Slow to promote at times, limited growth without relocation.

Advice to Management

Align purchasing compensation to reward top performers. Regional awareness of opportunities inside each department is needed.

    Pros

    the pay is good for the work that you do. The people you work are very nice and work hard.

    You work outside most of the time in the heat and cold and rain and snow. Some times there under staffed and the managers don't care.

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

    Pros

    Great people to work with, decent pay for the job. Opportunity for growth as long as you do things there way. Opening alot of new locations around the country so great for relocation.

    Cons

    Company doesn't promote from within, they would rather hire new folks from right off the street with no experience. Micromanagement is horrible, managers try to brainwash associates.

    Advice to Management

    Start to hire from within the company, especially if you have good potential associates. Tweak the competency model it's a bit of a contradiction once one really reads into it.
