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

Pros

Unrivaled career development. Work Ethic pays off I am truly blessed to work for CarMax. Exceptional pay and I look forward to my long career at CarMax

Cons

Retail hours. But that is what I signed up for so I can't complain. Not too much to complain about really. Not sure what anyone who is unhappy is talking about.

Advice to Management

Keep on developing and keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule (create your own as a Senior Consultant), Company cares about employees, You earn more "perks" as you continue to achieve better results.

    Cons

    Pay does not follow rising cost of living, management shows a great deal of favoritism, the better you do, the more you lock yourself into your current position, sales will always have a "cut throat" mentality

    I worked at CarMax full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    -Great People
    -Good place to start
    -Simple job with little skill needed to be successful

    Cons

    -Compensation is not competitive
    -Management make simple tasks out to be world changing initiatives that are only able to be performed by a select few
    -Very easy to become bored and complacent
    -Lots of politics involved to advance
    -Clubhouse management - your either a part of the club or your not
    -Times are changing in the industry and the competition has evolved faster

    Advice to Management

    Revisit the culture that made CarMax a great company. Over the last 5 years that culture has completely disappeared along with the opportunities and compensation. Go back and find out why your number one asset (your employees since you have forgotten) are leaving for new opportunities. The competition is learning and adapting to the CarMax model and they are offering a future that doesn't exist at CarMax anymore. Training, Culture, Compensation are now 3 things that have taken a back seat to the new CarMax Next Generation model.
