Former Employee - Sales Consultant in Austin, TX
Former Employee - Sales Consultant in Austin, TX
Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Payed for your performance, felt like running your own business

Cons

Most weeks have split days off with the occasional Friday Saturday Sunday and a Sunday Monday within a 6 week period. 100% commission is rough on a bad month! but overall it was fairly consistent.

Advice to Management

Come to Corpus Christi!

    I have been working at CarMax (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Training program for someone coming in with no car sales experience is a Pro.

    Cons

    Doesn't matter what part of the country you work in, you get paid the same per car sold. So, if you lived in the South and moved to the North, you will not receive an adjustment for living in a higher cost of living area. LGM's do not take your management experience into consideration if you want to advance your career. I have seen people get promoted to Sales Managers because they sold over 800 cars even without a prior management background. This doesn't always make good leaders.

    Advice to Management

    HQ should take the Millions that the company makes and pay cost of living increases per cars sold for your employees instead of losing good people who struggle to earn a living. Corporate greed at it's best!!
