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

Pros

CarMax is a great blend of traditional retail and well...something else. It's a high energy, fast paced, team and customer focused environment- but a culture that is sooo much more personal than traditional retail. The stores generally have 150 or more associates in each one, but we never feel like just a number. Our leaders actually care about us, and we genuinely care about each other. We can feel really good about the product that we offer our customers and at the end of the day we all know that we're here to sell cars - we each contribute to that process differently. I've only been here for about six years and I have decades before I'll be able to retire, but I hope to spend each and every one of those years at CarMax! I couldn't imagine working anywhere else!

Cons

Nothing really - it's so good that my 'cons' are wishes. It'd be great to have an onsite gym for the associates to use in the store and/or onsite daycare.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you're doing! It's worked for 20+ years and it's only getting better each year!

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

    Pros

    Co-workers are generally pleasant to work with.

    Cons

    The culture has changed dramatically. One of the companies founding principles was quality which has become a farce.
    Senior Company leadership are immature and only care about their personal wealth.
    The company business principle is built around low balling customers to sell their cars outright and then make $$$$$$ through internal wholesale auctions.

    Advice to Management

    Start running the company vs obsessing over the stock ticker.
