"The pay, while OK, was based on budgets set every month, with the per car $ amount going up or down depending. You had to make budget that day (each day) in order to end up with any bonus money. Base pay is minimal."
"Severely underpaid at this location."
"I am underpaid. I have skills that will allow me to be paid more."
"Underpaid. The Sales Consultants' pay has been raised once (yes, only ONCE) since 1993. The per unit price for non-club level consultants was previously $150, now it is $160. It's offensive, especially given the aggressive expansion of the company. CarMax plans on opening one new store every month for the next three years. It seems they would rather choose to expand than to pay their consultants a reasonable wage."
"I am part time and I make a great living at Carmax. My success has come with a lot of sacrifice at first in building a client base. There are sometimes where it takes a tremendous amount of work to close a deal and those are the times where I feel we are under-paid."
"Underpaid, overused and abused for the quantity of hours spent working with customers and selling, only to find out the cars are in poor quality."
