The no-haggle retailer of used autos is appearing on the Best Companies to Work For list for the 19th time this year.
- New hires receive a warm welcome even before their first day. As soon as someone accepts a job offer, the team leader calls to welcome them, and a mentor calls to answer any questions they might have before they start.
- Elaborate onboarding includes making sure new hires have clear direction about their schedule and are provided with smaller details, such as where they should park and what restaurants are nearby, before their first day.
- Workers can utilize the CarMax Connect web platform to get personalized information, aggregated news, and useful company resources.
- “It's the first company that I've worked for that makes you feel the company puts its employees first, and truly understands that it's the sum of its parts that make up the whole,” said one employee. “They're also very understanding when it comes to personal issues getting in the way of work and allowing you to take time off to address them, and not make you feel like you're letting the whole company down for doing so.”
