    I have been working at CarMax full-time

    Pros

    High integrity culture. National locations. Quality Brand.

    Cons

    Misinform multiple new hires during the hiring process. Mid - high level opportunities. Advancements are strongly determined by who you know in the good ole boys arena. Though performance is a key factor. Operations opportunity for mid - high level mgmt is limited for females.

    Advice to Management

    C level may want to take a closer look on clicks and good ole boy mentality. Quality mgrs and associates have left because they were overlooked because of who they weren't friends with outside of work.

    Pros

    Free coffee, at least not unemployed but can not wait for retirement., very poor work environment.

    Cons

    long hours, deals are being taken from you and nonconsistent policies applied to individuals, treated like babies. Highly micromanaged, no respect.
