Cars.com Employee
in Santa Monica, CA

"I'm proud to have worked for Cars.com for 6.5 years before being furloughed and subsequently let go as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. The first 3 years were spent in their Santa Monica office and the remainder spent working full time remotely. Cars.com provides ample opportunities for professional growth, an excellent work-life balance, a commitment to quality and customer satisfaction, and a willingness and ability to facilitate both organizational and technological change within and throughout the organization to meet market demands. Excellent employer."

"I love the company I worked for recently - Two clients cars.com and McDonalds both companies are close to my heart and the number of technologies I learnt there is what makes me a better fit for this company. I completely recommend people to join cars.com or McDonalds at any point in time as I was able to learn a lot from there as a Data analyst/Data engineer."

Cars.com Employee
in Chicago, IL

"I’ve worked for cars.com since 2015. The company has a solid mission and passionate employees, and offers stellar benefits and flexibility. Cars is making great strides to embrace change and push through some of the growing pains of their spinoff as an independent company that is now publicly traded."

"I worked for the company for 2 years. It is a good place for a first job, lots of young people, some still play with their toys, which can be annoying at times. Hard to concentrate on your assignments sometimes, because of the noise and the open space"
