I have been working at CarMax part-time (more than a year)

Pros

No haggling on prices, customers have 5 day money back, great environment, No quotas, won't get fired if you don't sale a car

Cons

Strictly commission, $160 per car you sale, $100 if they get a service plan and $15 for credit applications. But you don't get paid to go to the daily meetings but they are mandatory, you don't get paid for appraisals, nor test drives but you can't say no. And they will pay you minimum wage based off the hours you work only if you made less then that amount selling cars. BUT THEY WILL DEDUCT IT FROM YOUR NEXT CHECK! CHEAP

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Too many professional development meetings and we don't get paid for it.

    I have been working at CarMax full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Friendly working atmosphere, college reimbursement for both part time and full time associates. Flexible scheduling due to its retail format. Excellent full time benefits.

    Cons

    Although one of its pros, if you're looking for a consistent schedule, because it is retail, you will not find it here. Need to move out of your region in order to progress in any type of management position.

    Tiresome and rigid management procedures, but if you can get over that, it's not bad

    I have been working at CarMax full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Work, life balance. Flexible vacation policy, nice home office building

    Cons

    Culture that needs new programs to validate people are continually improving. Revolving door of new programs and training takes the eye off more important conversations that teams need to be focused on, like selling more cars.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop shoveling training down our throats and forcing crazy procedures for future promotions.
