    They know how to celebrate here at the nation’s largest retailer of used vehicles (more than a half-million cars a year are sold through their 156 superstores). When store performance is strong the entire store is recognized with a steak cookout. CEO Tom Folliard and other leaders visit the store, fire up a grill, and serve the store’s associates to thank them for their hard work and dedication in providing exceptional customer service. CarMax plans to open between 13 and 16 new stores nationwide each year for the next two years. Read the Great Place to Work review here.
