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

Pros

Very challenging mentally and physically. A lot of time outdoors and a lot of pressure to spend the company's money with complete accuracy.

Cons

Winter months or hot summers can be as challenging as the really bad stinky cars.

Advice to Management

Keep the team environment alive and healthy - it makes coming to work more like making money with friends.

    "I've been with CarMax for nearly 20 years. The only dissatisfied Associates I've ever seen had unrealistic expectations."

    I have been working at CarMax full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A growing company with lots of room for advancement. The company truly cares about its employees. Decent pay and good benefits. Family environment - I've made many close friends for life. When my wife and I meet new people we are always proud to say that I work for CarMax. Two of my kids work for CarMax - I can't think of a higher endorsement than that!

    Cons

    None that aren't common with any other job. If it was easy it wouldn't be called work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and thank you for the opportunities I've been given.

    I worked at CarMax part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fun, relaxed, informal work environment. Team builders and company events are good for employee moral.

    Cons

    Numbers. A very number centered industry, but the numbers mean more to the managers than the people do. Not afraid of turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Find a compromise between statistical quotas and various work personalities and you will inherently motivate success.
