    I worked at Jiffy Lube full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The guys were good to work with and there were constant hours so you could have a semblance of a normal life. This store was bought by someone else and from what I hear it's better all around to work there now

    Cons

    Poor quality tools and an owner that would not hesitate to yell at his employees and was as cheap as the day is long ( Former Owner)

    Advice to Management

    You did what I would have suggested and got a new manager and the new owner definately should make things better as well


  2. "decent, flexible hours"

    Pros

    quiet slower paced hours out weigh busy fast paced rush hours. opportunity to move up the ladder quickly if motivated. free coffee and news paper daily, sometimes donuts!!!

    Cons

    close quarters, dirty, have to deal with angry suspicious customers that think that you are going to mess up their vehicle

    Advice to Management

    don't be so cheap, put some 2 ply tp in the bathrooms pls

    I worked at Jiffy Lube part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Discounts on oil changes, learning about cars, meeting interesting people, and a great way to get to know the pos system. Getting down and dirty.

    Cons

    Corporate doesnt understand how a store actually runs and thus will sometimes give pointless tasks or unrealistic standards. if you dont like getting down and dirty then dont apply.

    Pros

    Get to work with your hands, work outside. Its franchise owned so different locations are ran very differently. some overtime.

    Very low pay for the amount of work done in busy locations. Little to no benefits. Micromanaged.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees more.

    I have been working at Jiffy Lube full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    easy work, good work environment if employees get along, pays bills, free oil changes, get a few raises right off the bat with a little effort.

    Cons

    all of upper management has no idea what they are doing 90% have never even worked on a car let alone in a shop, they expect everyone to sell over $80 on every single car that comes in the shop and us to meet budget every single month or else they will fire people randomly until the shop does better. bonuses are a joke if your not a GM, highest bonus i ever got was $20 and i work at one of the top stores of our district. no real room for advancement you top out at $11 h/r unless you go salary.

    Advice to Management

    put someone in charge that has some form of automotive experience and either expect less from your workers or pay good enough to find good help.
