Automotive Technician (Current Employee) – Centralia, WA – June 1, 2017
Jiffy Lube is the type of place that if your working and the labor to profit percentage is to high you will get sent home. Im lucky if i get to work at least 20 hours a week. The bosses at my particular location abuse there power and can be verbally abusive.
OPERATIONS MANAGER JIFFY LUBE (Current Employee) – 1640 w foothill blvd upland ca 91786 – May 20, 2017
a typical day at work is balancing different aspect of the job. This consist of anything from retail management to developing new employees and creating a firm work schedule for employees. High turn around rates for management. Work place culture was always great for me. Working under all types of weather was the most challenging. Hot summer days and doing tire rotations under the sun was always a challenge. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people.
discounts on automotive service, Oil changes/tire rotations ect
High stress level for mangement and high turn around rates
Great franchise to gain experience in the automotive industry.

Heartland being the largest franchise of Jiffy Lube, invests alot of time and money into their employees and especially their managers. they have plenty of room for advancement and will teach you everything you know. I quit because i moved to Oklahoma and they do not own any stores here but in the future i would go back no questions asked.
Too much pressure to increase sales in a drive-in business
Operations & Service Manager (Former Employee) – Madison, WI – April 27, 2017
The work day typically consisted of performing service on customer's vehicles on a first-come, first-serve basis, cleaning the service bays and customer waiting areas, and attempting to entice passing motorists to come in for service. There was a lot of pressure to upsell the customer, attempt to get them to purchase a higher level of service than they asked for. Management was constantly applying pressure to increase sales while attempting to save money by neglecting the facility and equipment. Hardest part of the job was attempting the upsell to reluctant customers (I don't care for this tactic and don't want to have it done to me, so I am not comfortable in doing it to customers.) The best part of the job was the customers themselves and the other employees.

You will work a lot of hours. The team leaders don't help much. They stay understaffed and don't care if they overwork people and they promise things but never do what they say, but the pay isn't too bad with all the overtime you'll get.
Machine Operator (Current Employee) – Greencastle, IN – March 28, 2017
On any given day the production number can increase or decrease, and management won't keep the operators informed. The upper management of the company puts together big presentations and always talk of employee equality, but there is a clear gap between each position and what they are able to get away with.
good health insurance, clean and orginized
no raise for knowlage, no pay for manditory summer shut down, poor job communication
Slush Mold (Former Employee) – Greencastle, IN – March 10, 2017
Was an overall good place to work except for the management. They're terrible. They aren't very understanding when it comes to family or taking time off. And if you take a day off or miss a day due to illness, chances are they'll constantly ride your every day after that. Even if it's for a doctor's appointment, court date, doesn't matter. They're not very considerate.
Good checks, good food service at work, plenty of overtime.

I worked at Heartland Automotive for almost 7 months and I would love to go back. The Team leaders and Lead operators are all so awesome and they wont leave you to do the job alone unless you, yourself are 100% sure you have it down pat.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Olympia, WA – January 23, 2017
If you want a job where you wonder every day "do I still have a job" or "wonder what they are angry about now" This is the job for you. If you like taking static all day long from supervisor(ESPECIALLY THE DISTRICT MANAGER) who are not on the same page as the rest of the company or other store managers. This is the drain life hole for you. STAY AWAY.
You get to work on cars
Stand in rain holding a sign, Managers are never on the same page, Take MAJOR STATIC from a District Manager and Store Manager who do not know much or just do not care
General Manager (GM) (Current Employee) – Tri-Cities, WA – January 17, 2017
Heartland automotive is an okay place to work. If you are lower then a manager (part time)you only get 15 hours a week. Or less. If you are full time the company will only have you work 30 to 40 hours a week. There is no guarantee that you will get a full 40 hours a week. If you become the manager you will be bent over backwards and dragged threw the mud. Working 60 plus hours a week. This company doesn't really care about their building's. Example, the heater decided to stop working in the lobby. You wont get it fixed until winter. Shop pipes break flooding the lower bays causing hazards and instead of closing the store for a day they make emplyees walk threw water in December to change oil. No bay heaters to keep warm while working on cars in cold conditions and being forced to stand curbside in rain sleet snow hail etc.. for sometimes hours. Constantly having new district managers with low consistany. The company makes the general manager jump threw hoops and doesn't help to succeed. So good luck.
learning multiple vehicle maintnence skills
low pay, minimal hours, poor corporate communication
