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

    Pros

    Great benefits, good sales managers (but a little slow to dump bad ones). Very good training with the right mentor. Pay considerate with effort put in, want to make $50,000 work 50-60 hours or move onto management after proving yourself

    Cons

    No pay for unrelated sales activities ( boring trading sessions, lock ups, snow clearing, putting tags on cars,etc.) Minimum wage on bad periods, than required to pay back (questionable labor law violation)

    Advice to Management

    Hire professional trainers to " mentor" New employees locally. Many great teachers ars just decent sales consultants.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at CarMax full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    None. Unless you are good at sucking up to the boss even though you are completely incompetent and have a terrible work ethic.

    Cons

    Long hours.
    Lowest pay in the industry.
    Incompetent management.

    Advice to Management

    Promote the people who actually know what they are doing and not the one who are best at regurgitating the company rhetoric.
