CarMax is great place to meet and build relationships with people. They offer great benefits for part-time and full-time employees. It's a great place for any motivated individual to start from the bottom and move their way up the ladder.

Great place to work if you like big corporate
Service Advisor (Current Employee), FLSeptember 21, 2014
Alluring business model, friendly staff, award winning, but could be getting too big a company for true advancement from the bottom up. Management seems to come mostly from outside the company. If you're lowly, you stay lowly.

fun place to work
Car Detailer (Current Employee), San Antonio, TXSeptember 12, 2014
a typical day at work would be very calm but yet fast pace environment every day you learn the progress that the company makes the managers are very nice and are encouraging on going to school. the people you work with are fun and nice. the hardest part of this job would be the long days when theres a bunch of work to be done. over all the best part – more... of the job would be me being able to attend school and them working with my schedule – less

Team based, good overall starting place for new technician
Automotive Technician (Former Employee), Charlotte, NCSeptember 12, 2014
Pros: employee benefits are outstanding, catered lunches common
Cons: production based company, customer vehicle repair secondary for bottom line, lack of dealer based software for proper diagnosis. lack of dealer specific tools for repairs, low pay.
Typical work day consisted of daily meeting/ pep talk. Work is usually slow on retail side. Team is easy to work with and eager to lend specific advise about manufacture based concerns. Knowledge of all type of manufactures learned. Nothing about job is difficult.

productive fast pace work place
detailer (Former Employee), Houston, TXSeptember 10, 2014
Pros: 1hr long lunch breaks, team meetings with food
Cons: graveyard shift
CarMax
a typical day at CarMax was for me a wonderful and fun experience every day I would get a new car to take care of. you clock in check in your computer get your details on what is needed to be done to the cars your going to have that day and get to work. As long as you manage your time well and your keep up with the pace your managers tend to – more... be very laid back. My manager was very helpful and well as my coworkers. you work by yourself but if your coworkers see that you are in need they are always willing to help. the hardest part for me was the night shift. being a fulltime mother with two children it seemed as if I hardly got any sleep so I was exhausted by the end of the week. the most enjoyable part was being able to drive different cars and trucks also my team mates – less
