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.

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

    Pros

    Great training, good managers, nice environment.

    Cons

    Industry reputation is hard to get rid of even though CarMax is nothing at all like the used car industry. Pay is very low so turnover is high. Only one Saturday off every 6 weeks.
    Management is obcessed with timekeeping late by 1 minute 4 times in a year and you are fired-automatically.

    Advice to Management

    Pay a competitive wage.
