CarMax Inc. nailed it again, ranking as the No. 1 Top Workplace among the Richmond area’s mega companies for the seventh consecutive year.
The Goochland County-based retailer, which has about 1,680 local employees, has taken the top spot in the mega-size category every year in the Top Workplaces program for companies with more than 900 employees.
“Beyond a doubt, our associates are what makes CarMax a great place to work,” said Diane Cafritz, chief human resources officer for the used-car giant.
“We are proud to offer them a fun, innovative and collaborative work environment with unmatched training and career growth opportunities,” she said.
CarMax, known for its no-haggle pricing, is transforming the automotive industry once again by offering customers the ability to buy a car on their own terms, whether from home, in a store or a combination of both, Cafritz said. The new omni-channel car buying experience is made possible by advanced technologies, which means CarMax is hiring talent in technology, product and data science expertise.
With the company’s rapid growth, the chain has opening for positions nationwide, she said, including at its five customer experience centers. The more challenging positions to fill are automotive service technicians and technology experts.
