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

    Pros

    Met some very nice people, who by the way are totally disappointed in the job as well.

    Cons

    As a full time sales consultant there is absolutely no work life balance. You are expected to come in early, move cars, clear the lots when it snows for no pay. The hours are non stop. You will get one weekend off every 8 weeks. You will constantly be in on your days off to complete a sale rather than to lose it. the commission is the lowest in the industry, you will never see your family. In addition to that there are daily huddles, non paid, meetings that are scheduled that you are expected to attend even if it is your one day off. They love to say they are in the top 100 companies to work for, how that is possible I have no idea. You may think that I write this because I have not done well, not the case, made lots of sales but you are also selling your life away.

    Advice to Management

    Be truthful with information regarding days off, weekends, hours and the fact that the minimum wage you are given if you are not making sales is a Draw, it will be deducted from your pay.

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

    Pros

    The training that I received at CarMax was like going through boot camp for sales. The business model they have come up with is awesome and it makes for a comfortable and enjoyable environment to work in.

    Cons

    It is 100% commission, so if you have a bad month, you really are out of luck.

    Advice to Management

    Tom is doing a great job. I'll never buy a car anywhere else.
