CarMax Compensation Employee Reviews

What is the best part about your compensation package?

My base salary and bonus potential are very fair.

Good insurance. 401k match is good

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

Our benefits are phenomenal and the added perks are unmatched!

I was unable tomwork long enough

The Healthcare package and available hours for PTO.

I feel compensated fairly and reasonable

tuition reimbursement and competitive benefits in all categories

Time Away policy (CarMax does not have sick or vacation time for corporate Associates)

They ask for feedback and adjust based on feedback

my compensation very good for now

Great pay, good bonus/stock setup

Its very comprehensive however, its very expensive in comparison to other well equipped plans.

Equity grants and stock purchase discounts

Its fair and benefits are cery comperitive

best part is the unlimited PTO

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

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.

I have been working at carmax for a year and stil am not given a personal day

Leadership pressures you to fix things that are out of your control.

straight commission sucks when sales are low

Review from Sales Dept

base salary plus bonus/commission with sales consultant position

Better and fair pay, growth possibilities, professional management.

Most of our commission is being taken away due to the call center & customers going from store to store in addition to the call center, coupled with losing sales due to people not doing their jobs correctly. It’s really hard to make any money at CarMa

Review from Sales Dept

The pay scale is a little low for the job

Review from Operations Dept

Do not cut our pay !!

Review from Sales Dept

I do everything there and receive the neutral treatment

The compensation hasn't changed in 20 years. It needs to be increased.

Review from Sales Dept

They are a bunch of corrupt and dishonest management, do a lot of favoritism to other employees, they are disrespectful and discriminating
