Carfax put itself up for sale
Lower Manager (Former Employee) – Centreville, VA – 24 March 2013
You can search the internet and find that Carfax has put itself up for sale. This may explain some of the employee turnover and it would probably be a good guess that the uncertainty will cause problems.
Of course, once a new owner is found, who knows what that will mean as far as employment.
I found Carfax a challenging place to work at with little support in the area I worked. Few resources made the job difficult to do. The company ranks departments in priority each year and my department was not high on the list, so there were little resources available, but the managers did not care.
The benefits while good, don’t make up for the frustration on the job, and the organizational structure is flat so chances of promotions are slim.
Carfax was also recently challenged on the ABC news show 20/20 which anyone can search on the web, and it would be worth looking at.
Recap: Good benefits, frustrating work, little help, little chance of moving up in the company, the company is being sold, and employee turnover appears to be increasing.
