CarMax Celebrates 18 Years As One Of Fortune Magazine’s 100 Best Companies To Work For®

April 11, 2022

Company Hiring More Than 2,000 Positions Nationwide

RICHMOND, Virginia (April 11, 2022) – Fortune magazine and Great Place to Work® have named CarMax (NYSE: KMX) one of the 100 Best Companies to Work For® in 2022. This marks the 18th consecutive year that CarMax has been named to this prestigious list, which annually recognizes the best companies to work for in the country.

“The foundation of our company’s success is our exceptional associates, who make CarMax a great place to work and build a career,” said Diane Cafritz, CarMax’s chief human resources officer. “We are extremely proud of this recognition, which is due to our associates’ commitment to living our values every day.”

The Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For® award is highly competitive and based on analysis of survey responses from more than 4.5 million current U.S. employees. Great Place to Work® is the only company culture award in America that selects winners based on how fairly employees are treated. Companies are assessed on how well they are creating a great employee experience that cuts across race, gender, age, disability status, or any aspect of who employees are or what their role is.

“Best Companies’ leadership has never been more necessary,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work®. “As workers struggle with the Great Resignation, burnout and Covid disruptions, these exceptional companies offer workplace experiences as strong as prior to the pandemic. These companies get that 'place' is wherever their employees are sitting or standing, and they are committed to make that place equitable, safe and productive. Their commitment to genuinely care for their people through trust, inclusion, purpose and meaningful flexibility for life circumstances goes beyond surface-level perks and is a model for the market to follow.”

Additional recent recognitions for CarMax include Fortune magazine’s “Best Workplaces in Retail”; PEOPLE magazine’s “PEOPLE Companies that Care”; the Human Rights Campaign/Corporate Equality Index’s “Best Places to Work for LGBTQ+ Equality”; Training Magazine’s “Training APEX Award”; and recognition by Military Friendly as a “Military Friendly Employer.”
