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

Pros

My work schedule was ideal. I enjoyed having my weekends off. I knew what was expected of me in terms of production and results. My supervisor was understanding and fair minded.

Cons

My hourly wage was less than I expected for the work I performed. At times, additional help would have produced better end day results. Communication with other personnel could be improved.

Advice to Management

Give employees more decision-making opportunities.

    I have been working at CarMax part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Generally speaking, there is usually "that person" at work that you can't stand. At the Easton location in Columbus, OH, that person doesn't work there. Very positive, supportive environment.

    Cons

    The work/life balance is not the best. Also, there are broad structures and practices that are might have seemed efficient in a small sampling that do not work out applied with a broad corporate brush stroke.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the underlings more. Top down isn't effective if you are deaf to what's happening at the bottom. Especially when considering different locals and populations across the country.

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

    Pros

    Im a student so the tuition reimbursement was great. Great people at the location I worked at. Ability to get raises with certifications.

    Cons

    As inventory associate you have to answer to every department in carmax which can be hectic. It is very fast paced so if you're more of the laid back worker than this position is not for you.
