I have been working at CarMax full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Great coworkers. Feeling out all the various new cars coming into inventory.

Cons

Micro-Managed is an understatement. Constant criticism from management. Underpaid. Require multiple unpaid morning huddles each week. Sales Managers giving away deals to meet budget. The amount of work does not reflect in the pay that we make.

Advice to Management

Restructure the pay scale. Consultants that average 10 cars a month should make at least 40k a year. Sorry but less than that is not acceptable. Not here in California. And not for me.

    Working with great customers. Not micromanaged. Training is very helpful, keeping up to date.

    New consultants our held to different expectations. Veteran consultants get a lot more slack, held to different expectations

    Sales managers need to be on the same page with every sales consultant
