Align purchasing compensation to reward top performers. Regional awareness of opportunities inside each department is needed.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great people to work with, decent pay for the job. Opportunity for growth as long as you do things there way. Opening alot of new locations around the country so great for relocation.

    Cons

    Company doesn't promote from within, they would rather hire new folks from right off the street with no experience. Micromanagement is horrible, managers try to brainwash associates.

    Advice to Management

    Start to hire from within the company, especially if you have good potential associates. Tweak the competency model it's a bit of a contradiction once one really reads into it.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Reasonable compensation, Good benefits, Flexible Scheduling

    Cons

    Scheduling-no one wants to work nights/weekends, People who are not ready for management positions are promoted while hard workers are over-looked, Compensation is not commensurate with the production of the business, overworked

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on personality when hiring employees, too many applicants interview well but when placed into office setting there are too many different personalities and no diversity development. Move people up who deserve it, not because they are your buddy or have been employed there for a long time.
