CarMax Application Form PDF
Unfortunately, there is no CarMax printable application form that you can submit to a CarMax location by hand. Instead, you are able to make an online job application by going to the website of CarMax.
When your application is accepted you will be called for an interview. Most probably, you will be interviewed by the store manager. You will be asked questions such as “What did you like least about your previous job?”, “What are your strengths and weaknesses?”, etc. Questions about your availability and personality are also common ones. They may also give you scenarios of customer transactions that require you to make a tough decision and they will want you to describe the reasons for your decision. You may be interviewed for a second time in some cases. When you are done with both interviews, they will make a background check and finally inform you whether you got the job or not.
