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

Pros

Great company to advance with, many new store openings, paid vacations, sick days, holidays, stock options, 401k, fun environment, company pays health insurance for mechanics and inventory employees, paid trips to Vegas for top sales people, demo cars for managers, company stands behind its products, fun store activities such as, summer bbq's holiday parties and community charity events.

Cons

Long hours, Insurance could be better, low appraisal offers sometimes make it hard to purchase or sell vehicles, non paid morning sales meetings.

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

    Pros

    If you like cars, it can be fun.

    Cons

    Working in 100 degree heat is death, also cold winters are terrible. I had no idea I would be outside this often.

    Advice to Management

    Hire at least 1 more part time night crew worker

    Pros

    Fun people to work with. Buying at the auction is great! Great training program and company.

    Cons

    Low pay for the amount of work you have to do

    Advice to Management

    Pay your buyers more for the work they do. You might keep them and not loose so many of them. They say you're not a manager, but yet we have to manage the prices of our front lot car, margins, other buyers at auctions, our aged inventory, options on the cars, the office, help struggling sales consultants and more. I love the job just not the pay.
