Fast Paced like crazy
IA (Former Employee) –  Winder, GaAugust 16, 2018
The IC grew like crazy in the year I was there.
More and more cars every week. Constantly being asked to hit bigger numbers.
Lots of room to elarn new stuff. A lot of movement around the ic that lets you see new skills and learn. A lot of people are promoted.
Very few saturdays, some overtime here and there.

Fun culture. free food, events, giveaways.
Pros
Room to grow, fun place to work.
Cons
Strict attendance policy, no sick time

Long days and no work life balance
Outside Advocate (Former Employee) –  Danvers, MAAugust 9, 2018
I worked here for three months. I was let go after one incident. The hours were long and it was stressful. I did enjoy being out and about not being behind a desk. My coworkers were great as well. They preach all this company value stuff but they are just like any other company and they could care less about you personally. Oh and since most of their cars were used, they were mostly full of problems. You're better off dealing with a dealership. I would avoid this company for your own benefit.
Pros
Ok pay. Good time off
Cons
Understaffed. Terrible management.

Struggling to Keep up with the Growth
Team Lead (Current Employee) –  PhoenixAugust 7, 2018
Fun work environment with great people, but the company has struggled to maintain their culture and core values as they've grown. What once was an amazing opportunity to kick start your career and advance in your personal growth, has now turned into a churn and burn call center that only cares about metrics.

Over worked, salary pay, Cut throat Human Resouces and manager
Car Hauler (Former Employee) –  South Windsor, CTJuly 31, 2018
Don’t bother working here. The manager and HR will lie to you verbally telling you one thing and then send an email or text saying something else. No respect for DOT hours-of- service. Management will try to get you to violate hours of service. Carvana does not tell you that you will be sent to a car auction in Framingham, MA to pick up about 9 cars at a car auction in a big 3-4 football fields in size parking lot to search for cars that are spread out all over the place. Some car engines will not start because of lack of fuel or dead batteries. They dog you because you are on salary. And if you get injured they’ll fire you as well.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
No time for lunch break, managers micromanage, HR lies

The job was good but they let others get away with more than me
Offlot Runner (Former Employee) –  Tolleson, AZJuly 31, 2018
I missed worked due to a fractured rib also being diagnosed with asthma, other co-workers got away with being an hour late to work, or not showing up.
Pros
Long breaks, donuts on Wednesdays and paid vacation.
Cons
Being blamed for others mistakes, working overtime eventhough I had school and unlocking many doors due to people's mistakes.

Decent place to work. Good advancement and pay. They are willing to hire from with-in. So you can advance quickly. They look more towards the final goal.

Keep Your Nose Clean
Inventory Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Blue Mound, TXJuly 18, 2018
At first, it was not a bad place to be. They offer great benefits from the moment you start and act like the genuinely care about the employee. After awhile you'll notice great favoritism and lack of empathy on you. They'll push you to meet their goals, and even if you're going through something, you're expected to be there or you will lose your job. Middle management is pitiful and big headed. They're not your friend at any level. They talk about promoting from within, but that is also a lie. They do not care how hard you work, as long as they meet production, you do not mean anything.

They Lie & don't Train as they advertised.
Driver (Former Employee) –  Delanco, NJJune 29, 2018
Working there was slow & no real training in Delanco way different than Winder (wkd as a team). Mngmt & team lead was supposed to train but they were all over the place. They made up job as they go & watch you make a mistake during training which they fire/fault you for it. Made promises that they don't keep about schedule & fault you for waiting around when there is nothing else to do when trucks were late coming in. Did what was asked of me not lazy but team lead was gone half the time I kept myself busy helping others. Some days were 8hrs other 12hrs, same pay. Some co-workers are cut throat some are nice/helpful, toxic environment from a bunch of guys. Compared to training in Winder GA it was 2 different companies. Take caution if wkng nj site
Pros
Benefits, free lunch Friday
Cons
Back stabbing lies PTO/schedule

Driver-Class A Semi (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZ 85018June 25, 2018
Carvana's main problem is their constant deviation from the original agree upon offer. There main mantra is "No Sidelines". However, the Local Logistic Manager at the Denver Hub Mike Alfaro which descriptive words which to describe him would be: Sloth, Apathy, Side-Liner, Never Present, and Not A Team Player, etc...

If you want a good job dont work for CARVANA . it is the worst job I've ever had . the general managers now nothing about vehicles and they only think of saving them money for there bonuses. And carvana managers makes the employees do really bad work on every car at Bluemound location.I can tell you just what to look for on all cars if you find me .dont work for this company .benefits are good but management is really bad the worst I've ever seen anywhere.and they alter your pay time when there computers go down.
Pros
Free lunch if you like cheep greesy pizza
Cons
Park out on the streets were your vehicle can get broke into .no security.

Place where your will to live goes to die
Body Shop Technician (Former Employee) –  Winder, GAJune 11, 2018
There's no PG way to explain the atrocities that occurred here at the ole Winder Carvana IC. The Management was a band of loony, incompetent phonies that pretend to be your friend but will pierce a dagger of betrayal into your skull if it meant they can make themselves look better. Instead of actual advancement based on merit and skills, they move people up the ladder by how well they kiss up to the management above them. Anyone who wants a real career with real fulfillment and purpose, stay far away from here. Your life will be a joke and your will to succeed will be slow roasted over a fire built by the company. Stay away. The only way to get rid of an incompetent manager is to make up an agreed upon lie that he/she made a lewd comment to an employee. That's it, that's the only way to bring about change. This company is a joke. Oh and if you prefer bean bag chairs and xbox in the break room over a raise in your pay for all your hard work, this is the place for you.
Pros
Gettin sideways in some new Stangs in the parking lot
Cons
Everything Else

Nothing fun about this place.
Unknown (Former Employee) –  TollesonMay 28, 2018
Management is horrible and breathing down your neck. They expect you to bust your balls for $12 an hour. They don't care about employees and worry more about their numbers. They tell you to work overtime the minute you're getting ready to go home. Don't waste your time here!
Pros
We get free donuts on wednesday and the home office gets everything free from Red bulls to beer.
Cons
Bad wages and management

An exciting company, fast mover but...
Inventory Associate (Former Employee) –  Winder, GAMay 21, 2018
The but comes from low wages, strict attendance policy meaning if you are sick and don't schedule your sick time on your PTO days, you are penalized. Training is somewhat of a myth, it's kinda sink or swim. the culture is great, young, up and coming company that just went public last April. I learned a lot about photography and auto paint correction. There were uniforms provided but you could wear t-shirts that you bought with the Carvana logo on them. Advancement was difficult if you had any points against you, you were basically looked over regardless of circumstance.
Pros
great hours, occasional free lunches and breakfast, giveaways
Cons
low wages, slow advancement, constantly changing processes

Cosmetic Inspector (Former Employee) –  Blue MoundMay 15, 2018
You will not find anyone else out there like the managers at Blue Mound Carvana. Beyond the best and completely laid back and understand you as a human. Would go back at the drop of a hat.

Worst place I've ever worked
Customer Advocate (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GA 30318May 14, 2018
I'm exhausted just thinking about the terrible work conditions and unprofessional management.
The management is definitely the worst part. Both the manager and territory manager are insensitive and wildly offensive.
