Pet insurance is most definitely a plus and theyll work on my car for s discounted rate regardless if its purchased at a CarMax

benefits - 401k match, dental, discounts, etc

The bonus is paid consistently and feels tied to our performance. Stock grants are generous, and the stock price performs well.

It's at a low cost you have a choice to pick from diffrent plans that may suit your needs

Its better than any union

Why do you feel undervalued and what would make you feel better about your compensation?

Compensation Reviews

The workplace environment is hostile to working, the managers are unprofessional and have attitude. Leader ship does not speak on what goes wrong and likes to avoid the situation. Also leader ship have other associates to delegate a situation causing a bigger problem. New hires don't last long.

Everbody engages with each other in a positive manner

We are all able to understand eachother

What do your coworkers need to improve and how could you work together better?

Team Reviews

Better communication and teamwork. Some employees like to pick and choose what they want to do. Also some employees like to ride the clock while others work hard. Also those employees choose to leave and have other staying long nights to finish all the closing duties, and it is a repetitive pattern.

Be better team members .

Be able to actually build geniuine bond

CarMax needs to stop hiring people with no prior automotive repair experience and start only hiring people with knowledge. The "we can train anyone to do this" mentality is horribly wrong and proves to be incorrect day in and day out.

Employees should recieve proper training ir be fored if they cant do their job

Very accepting environment of everyone, no matter your knowledge on cars

Like ince a year we get food

The insrtructor and co workers are helpful clean bathrooms

What needs to change to make the company culture better?

Environment Reviews

More women in supercisory positions. If coworkers make complaints about each other they should be briught together face to face.

Just about everything you can think of. Most of all treating employees as individuals, and not numbers and bodies that can just be replaced whenever as needed. Some shoes can not be filled.

CEO, Regional Management, LGM, and Sales Managers.

Management needs to set expectations & stop allowing things to continue being done the way the way they are now. There need to be some new procedures implemented to stop costly mistakes from being made & Management needs to insure procedures are being followed.

Review from Sales Dept

Team members need to feel like they are all important and their work is valued.

The process was efficient and friendly. The questions were relevant and I felt the interviewers were prepared.

Easy and not too long

I felt at ease during my interviews even though they do challenge you.

Interview is like a conversation.

if you apply for a auto tech have someone who knows what a mechanic can do and not have a sales manager interview them

Screen people better for work ethic

Better leadership is needed, including management. Everyone looks over the real problem and is not announced. The manager is always missing. And the assistant manager very unprofessional and needs management classes. Too many associates trying to be leadership and ate not being properly trained.

Car business is dying out fast

Communication to customers is terrible, customers are left confused. Working here all this pressure is put on you to speak and sell to customer but the tools given suck

Stop making horrible mistakes to people and make them pay for them!! Cars on the lot for customers to shop should all be available and not to only selected employees

Poor quality cars, low inventory, constant overcoming customer complaints.

name recognition carries a lot of weight

Leaving for work to go home.
