    I worked at CarMax full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Generally, a great place to work. Great culture. Continuous training. Constant feedback and chances for improvement of skills to increase execution.

    Cons

    Extremely, politically correct. Will repremand employees for perceived offenses even though they are exhibiting outstanding performance. Would prefer an outstanding customer review over selling a vehicle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Loosen up on the political correctness. Employees are allowed to offer praise or opportunities in communicating to each other. Some employees are extremely sensitive, which can lead to issues between employees.

    Pros

    Supportive management, empowered work experience. From a customer's perspective, arguably the best place to buy a car.

    Cons

    Laughable pay plan if it didn't hurt so much. No base salary. If you can't sell "extended warranties" you will be out in 3 months or less because 40% of your commission-only pay depends on it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need base salary!!!
