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

Not particularly pleasant, but a good place to learn basic skills while looking for somewhere that might value them. The training is good quality, on the rare occasions that someone pays attention, and the training requirements are actually followed.
Pit Crew (Former Employee) – Littleton, CO – April 26, 2017
This is a fun job. It's dirty, and grimy, The guests are usually happy and excited to see you. Servicing vehicles can have its downfalls, too. Pay attention to detail, or that guest won't be so happy next time you see them.
Inspected vehicles and inform customers on needed services. Drain oils and check standards of quality on customer vehicles. Top off all needed fluids

Jiffy lube is a joke, no real management and no organization
Lube tech (Current Employee) – Clifton Park, NY – April 20, 2017
Would never go back unless absolutely in need of a paycheck. Feel like they scam customers to get them to an average ticket of roughly $66 per customer out the door. Sales are pressured and the customers are aware of it.
Lower Bay Technician (Former Employee) – Sparks, NV – April 19, 2017
Jiffy lube was my 1st official job. And it was always fun and always a learning experience. The job was mostly mellow would be busy only on weekends at our store. Management was always decided by seniority and sometimes management would leave the store to go home. Only annoying part
They work with your schedule as best as they can. Always can learn something new
It's always your word against the customer and the customer is always right.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Puyallup, WA – April 16, 2017
This place was very difficult to work. I worked here to get myself through college, and I saw some terrible things. Managers were stealing from the till, customers, and doing drugs on the clock. They promote all of the young people eager to prove themselves, so they can sit in office and do god knows what. The managers would leave me with one or two employees for hours. They would come back drunk and high. They constantly encouraged me to lie to customers to get more money.
The general managers were just as bad. Their management is filled with people who have limited education. They all started from the bottom, but their skill sets were never developed to what they needed to be for that level of management. This filtered its way down to all of the employees.
The employees are constantly fighting with each other. Overall this was a terrible place to work. The things that I have witnessed have made it, so I would never bring my car here for any service.

Lube Technician (Former Employee) – Everett, WA – April 12, 2017
I enjoyed working for this company. The training is pretty good and hands on learning and computer based learning. Can go into even if you don't know much about cars to stat with, willing to train and teach. Typical day was busy and fast passed job and requires team work. Not the best if you need to work 40 hours a week. Was full time worker but usually only saw 20 hours or less a week. Also hard to work for during winter months as you have to freeze and can not wear that was not provided, but they did not provide for winter so you freeze a lot.
Everyday I worked I enjoyed. I learned how to change oil the correct way and replace the filters. Our manager was very outgoing and was more than willing to teach us things we did not know. The hardest part of the job was really remembering how the procedures should have been completed. With that being said, the most enjoyable part of the day is when we get a car in and out in less the 5 minutes.
