Very unorganized

Store Manager (Former Employee)

I worked at Jiffy Lube full-time for more than a year

ProsTraining is done on a daily basis.

ConsThere is no such thing as a 40 hour work week.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet as much as you can up front for a salary. There has been GM's there over 3 years that haven't seen a raise.

Good high school job

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Jiffy Lube

Prosworking at jiffy lube taught me very valuable skills in terms of upkeep on cars. I think it is a great job for any high school kid.

ConsSomething dealing with customers that immediately thought they were better than you was frustrating. Also, the schedule is pretty inflexible.

Decent Summer Job

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Jiffy Lube

ProsFun place to get to see/hear concerts, easy job - good for college kids who are home on break

ConsCan get hit on frequently by drunk people, long periods of standing - sometimes in brutal heat; they got new supervisors and they didn't seem to know what they were doing...it made the job miserable and not worth coming back for another season.

Terrible company to work for.....

Assistant General Manager (Former Employee)

I worked at Jiffy Lube full-time for more than 3 years

ProsAnyone can get hired no education or GED required.

ConsLow pay, poor training, bad management, no room for promotion, low hours, no bonus incentives, if you pay minimum wage you are going to get minimum employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementGo and work in a store yourself and see how purely idiotic your policies and target bay times really are... I want to see you physically do an oil change in 8 min or less using your guidelines on a VW Beetle with a skid plate or an H3 with two skid plates or a fuel filter change on an E150 with the 6 bolt panel in the way... Your goals are unrealistic yet you penalize employees for not doing it fast enough.. When you rush people... that's when mistakes and injuries occur.....IDIOTS.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
