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

Pros

Socially responsible, volunteering is highly encouraged.

Cons

Sometimes we were set up for failure due to manning issues.

Advice to Management

Address manning issues, especially around the holidays. My only issue at CarMax was when there were call-ins and we were left short staffed without the approval to call unscheduled employees in.
The laid back atmosphere of the 7152 location helped to make me feel like a part of the team, not just the business office. Keep that.

    Pros

    -I got to leave and never looked back.

    Cons

    -Horrible pay
    -No respect
    -Unprofessional management
    -Racism and sexism complaints easily dismissed
    -Disgusting work spaces
    -Unsanitary restrooms
    -Dangerous during winter
    -Deadly during summer
    -No security measures at all
    -Expired/uncooked food given to employees
    -No commitment towards the actually employee environment
    -Training is dreadful and not helpful or informative at all
    -I hate to be negative but, it is true, basically everything about this store/company was disastrous.
    *Not a rant, true life experience: I really wished there were better things to say about a company I thought was once great but now I will never allow friends or family members to even give them business because of the knowledge of what actually happens behind the scenes. A despicable company hiding behind the mask of pure luck and lies. The company should look a bit closer not only the performance of the store towards sales and why sales are happening but also pay attention to the actual employee 'happiness'. I know not all stores are like this, since I have been to two others while being transferred, so my last remark is this: Everything in a company should be dealt with responsibly and professionally. When personal issues and bonds are the only thing the company has to offer, you should turn around and look for a business - business is always professional and not personal. Good luck.

    Advice to Management

    Get some professional help. A company should not have to suffer because of incompetent managers that have no past experience in cars nor sales. (Horrible judgement)

    Advice to Management

    Allow the sales staff to do what they're good at with less interference.
