Sales Associate in Ashburn, VA

I liked working here everyone was very nice and training was easy it would be long hours and could be time consuming at times it’s a great way to start
Lead Business Office Associate in Tucson, AZ

Terrible company to work for they have us doing our tasks along with managers tasks while they slack off roaming the store chatting with sales associates or disapear for over an hour with no knowledge of where they went. And when terminated wont even tell you why you were fired. Just tell you your fired and you have such amount of time to clear out your desk. Also have you working 1-3weeks straight with no days off. At times working 9am-9pm shifts. Show no appreciation for all your hard work.

I enjoyed working for CarMax for the most part. It can be pretty stressful at times, but any sales job is going to have stress. It is a great place to work starting out in the car business, just because its not all commission based and you can learn the basics while working there.It can be stressful when there isn't someone that can help/ doesn't want to. And for growth within the company? You would have to be in their "click" and be their top favorite (in my personal and a lot of other people opinion). You get payed pretty decent, but you make basically nothing as you would at a traditional dealership would.

it was ok working their just a lot of things could have been better. like any sales jobs you have to move. which was not a problem, but working with only one good Manager and the other two really needed better training.
