I worked at CarMax full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Human interaction. Passion for cars. Employee discounts (Max 3 cars per year). Role play skills. Self confidence. Auto trade secrets. "Buyer" position has higher job satisfaction.

Cons

Schedule inflexibility. Unpredictable hours. Forget about personal life. Training material is overwhelming. Low pay (especially at newer locations with low sales)

Advice to Management

Help me, help you.

    I have been working at CarMax full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work, they really appreciate what you do, teambuilders, decent pay, decent benefits, great work life balance.

    Cons

    Health plan is mediocre, Upward mobility even for top performers is nonexistent, your manager will speak out of both sides of their mouth (using lots of words to not say anyting)

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within, most management is hired from outside. Doesn't give much hope to those of us wanting to move up.
