Pros

Great customer traffic. Lots of chances to make a sale. Good product.

Cons

Work hours. You do have to work a little late now and then to meet with customers. Comes with sales no matter where you go.

    Pros

    Strong senior leadership team, relatively low bar to join from college, nice people, good work life balance

    Cons

    Low competent mid-low level management team, lack of talent for innovation, awful IT infrastructure and staff, departments can be political but people avoid to admit it, little useful training for associate development, headquarter people get decent pay while doing nothing useful, store associates who contribute most directly to the company work hard but only being paid sadly

    Advice to Management

    Explore outside to hire competent directors/managers to lead departments

    Pros

    The company is really geared towards their employees development, both personally and professionally. They provide their employees with a variety of different tools to accomplish their goals.

    Cons

    CarMax's management team is very political. You have to be friends with your management team and other departments management team in order to move up in the company or transition into another department.

    Advice to Management

    The company wouldn't loose so many employees if they treated us like individuals instead of expecting every single person to fit into the same "box".
