Review from Operations Dept

What's going wrong and how can it be improved?

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.

Stop selling cars that haven’t even been cleaned, they stink, they have mechanical issues and they’re too expensive. CarMax capitalizes on those customers who can’t purchase elsewhere due to bad credit. They have low quality standards & so does their customer

Review from Sales Dept

Our management team is very poor and is not understanding with our mechanics

Review from Operations Dept

fire managers and hire ones that know what they are doing

Review from Operations Dept

The laziness of the employees and managers.

Leadership has went down the toilet

Review from Sales Dept

Carmax boasts about the opportunity to advance, but it is very easy to get stuck in any particular position. It would be easier and cheaper to place an already loyal, hard-working employee in position and train them into what you need.

the corporate should carefully listen to all associate's concerns and eliminate all those bad managers that are greedy and disrespectful

What do you like best about your company?

name recognition carries a lot of weight

Leaving for work to go home.

What would you most like to see improved at your company?

Co-workers who care as much as I do

Giving me less hours for the same amount of pay.
