Pros

My work schedule was ideal. I enjoyed having my weekends off. I knew what was expected of me in terms of production and results. My supervisor was understanding and fair minded.

Cons

My hourly wage was less than I expected for the work I performed. At times, additional help would have produced better end day results. Communication with other personnel could be improved.

Advice to Management

Give employees more decision-making opportunities.

    Pros

    The pros are great benefits. They pay a good portion of my college. Everyone is respectful of each other and there is a "family feel". Carmax already has an established name so you never have to worry about getting customers. The pay can be great if you work hard. Even when im doing bad for the pay period, I'm doing 9x better then my previous job. They are open to hiring younger/less experienced people. Carmax provides training and its not impossible to be hired at 18 but you have to really stand out. Hours are very steady. Part time is better than full time because you don't have to go to all the meetings/huddles. Best part time job for sure. Seems there are opportunities for advancement if you stay in the company long enough.

    Cons

    Customers think you are hourly, so they will show up when you are not there and you will lose a hard earned sale. Weather affects traffic. In the winter you see less people than in the summer. There is no steady paycheck. At some times you do feel like you are micro managed but it is a sales job.

    Advice to Management

    I love Carmax but putting "Hiring" signs right behind the podium does not send the right message to your workers.
