    Pros

    Learn a new field for my resume and work experience.

    Cons

    Horrible work environment. If you disagree even slightly with management(mind you they are always asking for employee opinions and outlook) you will immediately have a target on your back. The upper management is clearly showing favoritism, and only care about makin money. The office feels like a high school lunch room, and EVERYONE TALKS ABOUT EVERYONE, managers included. In fact the managers will say things to stir the pot amongst the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being so childish and focus on the growth of the company, and not the growth of your friendship circle.. A bunch of losers who had no friends in college and are using Carmax as a campus.

    Pros

    Great place to start career, fun atmosphere, great training, good core values, different experiences every day. Co workers.

    Cons

    Compensation is not great, expected to come in early and stay late, weekend hours, recently hired managers are clueless and in meetings all day, preaching about work life balance is garbage-there is none. Hard work is rarely rewarded, Lots of carrot dangling for promotion. Senior managers avoid customer service situations at all costs, then explain how they would have handled it in a different/better way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be sure to hire quality employees considering new store growth, not just warm bodies to fill positions, take a hard look at compensation across the board at store level...
