I have been working at CarMax full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good business culture with high respect and integrity by associates
Unbelievable growth potential

Cons

Pay scale is very behind for Sales Managers considering their growing responsibility for resolving all customer issues, unrealistic sales development programs, and ultimate accountability for security of a multi-million dollar inventory every night. At-risk compensation component is very disproportionate.

Advice to Management

Re-evaluate the Sales Manager base-pay before meeting a retention challenge for upcoming growth.

    Pros

    Quality of life with time away and flexibility.

    Cons

    Now totally HR driven and lacking freedom to do your best. Senior management is on a different level and sends it all down hill.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to the business that built the company less time spent updating HR profiles and more time spent driving the business to be successful.

    I have been working at CarMax full-time

    Pros

    In sales you are truly in control of your paycheck if you work hard and smart you can earn a decent living. Most of the people you work with are truly good people.

    Cons

    Management micro manages and you are not given a true definition of where to go in terms of growth. Even after you have shown success in your current position it is strictly politics. You should be compensated more on the sales side we have only received one pay increase in 20 years.

    Advice to Management

    Quit micro managing so much keep an eye on your performers and help out when needed. Also do a better job of identifying growth candidates you are setting the company up for failure when you are losing strong management candidates.
