Hood Tech (Former Employee) – Leesburg, VA – May 28, 2016
Everyone at Jiffy Lube Leesburg made me feel safe and comfortable from the moment I walked in as a new courtesy tech. Everybody was very good at their job and the associate who trained me was particularly good at training so it took me no time at all to learn all of my duties. They are constantly teaching and training you to move up if you show the initiative that you would like to progress for the next available position. I became a hood tech fairly quickly after realizing that I wanted to become one. In addition to being very capable and efficient workers, everybody was supportive of each other like a group of very close friends and, at times, even family. I would give a friend and co-worker a ride to and from work occasionally and one day, on the way from work to his house, it was brought up that I was in a tight spot financially. Without hesitation he offered assistance first with money, then in any other way he possibly could. There was another time when I was going through some difficulties emotionally and when we had some free time, my co-workers offered their advice and insight to a solution. All in all, Jiffy Lube, the Leesburg shop in particular, was a really awesome place to work and I would definitely work there again if I had the chance. As a matter of fact, I recently moved and I'm currently seeking employment. I know I'm definitely going to seek employment part time at Jiffy Lube.)
awesome comradery, hours (long days but allows for 3 days off a week and still making 40+ hours a week), medical benefits, commissions as well as hourly wage if commissions quota not met
long days, physically demanding and exhausting job in the elements
Lube and part mechanic (Former Employee) – Atascadero, CA – February 20, 2018
I was doing 115 hour every two weeks for about 2 months. Great paychecks. But after a while I learned pretty much everything there was to learn so I started to work in the back with the mechanic. The new manager didn't like that I knew more than him and it became a very hostile environment. So I gave my two weeks and left
Safety insptor. an E/M tech (Former Employee) – Utah – February 19, 2018
was there because they needed some one, an cleaning the restrooms, Not to work for a company that hires kids to be in charge, management was a joke, listing to people just put customers down. leaving when work was down,
I only was able to be at jiffy lube for a short time because I had to persue full time employment but it was a blast to work there especially if you enjoy hands on and a relaxed but professional environment
I would show up, ready to work, and I would have to wait 15-30 mins. for a manager to get there to open up shop late. then I wouldn't get my hours adjusted for the time I was on time waiting for the idiots to open up
Decent place to get oil changed. Not a good place to work.
Technician (Current Employee) – Dixon il – February 13, 2018
Overall my expirence here hasn't been too bad. The management here is terrible. The store manager at jiffy lube in dixon is a registered offender and spent 20+ years in prison and somehow has a job where he has access to thousands of names addresses and phone numbers. He is a complete jerk to all of his employees and a lot of the customers as well. He is only nice to the "good looking" women that come through here. The job itself is easy but you are way underpaid for what they expect out of you. A walmart door greater makes more money than a jiffy lube employee.
Very flexible hours.
Jerk for a boss, terrible pay, and they don't pay attention to labor laws
Productive and always on the move, making it a place to keep you occupied as time flies.
Customer Service Advisor (Former Employee) – Jacksonville, NC – February 12, 2018
Yes, like any workplace, you start at the bottom and progress. I started washing windows and vacuuming floors. As time went on, I managed to work my way up to a hood tech, lower bay tech then a customer service advisor.
Always occupied, there were some times with no customers and we wouls break accordingly
Fast paced, loud and has different layouts at every location.
Automotive Technician (Former Employee) – University Place, WA – February 7, 2018
My time there was fun, stressful, chaotic, and unorganized. Everyones experience is based on how you go about your days. Theres multiple times where one car can hold you up while another car is faster then expected. All in all its very team oriented without your co workers its very hard to complete the vehicles.
The best thing and worst thing about this job are the people you work alongside. When you are working with like minded hard working individuals that come to work with a good attitude it makes the job fun and easy to do.
Little to no opportunity for advancement, false promises
Crew Chief (Current Employee) – Wakefield, MA – February 7, 2018
Overall Jiffy Lube isn't a bad place to work at. It is difficult to advance if you aren't one of the people dealing with customers and even then it is still difficult because the manager and assistant cannot advance either. Starting pay is only 11 dollars an hour and other places that require less physical work have a higher starting pay. Not a bad starting job if fresh from highschool and interested in working on cars. The hours are long when you work full time and that somewhat compensates for the 11 dollar an hour to start.
