When closures led to furloughs of some employees, it wasn’t just hourly workers who felt the squeeze. “I appreciated that executives took a pay cut and that the board of trustees did not receive any compensation,” one employee writes. (Indeed, CEO William Nash took a 50% cut.) The company covered health insurance premiums for furloughed workers, and an associate disaster relief fund enabled employees to apply for help if they became ill or experienced a qualifying hardship. By the end of July 2020, CarMax no longer had any associates on furlough, and positions had been made available for approximately 99% of impacted employees.
