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
great place to learn details about car maintenance

the average day of work is practically good as far as performing work. the job is not hard but it can be complicated and when your manager has very little experience in managing it can become stressful.

Jiffy Lube is a great place to work. even if you have no experience with vehicles they will train you and I liked that about jiffy lube. the management is very patient and is always open for questions and will make sure you learn how to do your job the correct way

Bass horrible with no chance of improvement upper management treats you like a the personal slaves and they expect you to work everyday but if it's not busy they'll just send you home and tell you to stay by your phone because they're going to call you back in so they don't have to pay you
Lube technician (Current Employee) – Queens, NY – July 30, 2017
A typical day at Jiffy lube would be getting cars in and out as quickly as possible ,I have learn a lot working for this organization stuff in the future can be very helpful for me. I have learn more about different automobile ,improvement in selling and gaining the responsibility to open and close the shop. The hardest part would be the first week of every month just the fact on how busy we are and how we lose one employee so he can do safety & emission inspection .Now the enjoyable part is how we have our laugh from working hard and seeing our customer leave with a smile on there face and coming back.....
great team work
the income sucks, the employees should get treated better
Hood Technician (Former Employee) – Pasadena, CA – July 29, 2017
My day would consist of greeting customers, meeting needs and tell them what would be best for their cars. How to change oil, rotate tires was taught to me. The workplace culture was fast paced and competitive. The hardest part of the job was getting under the car, being fast for customers. Seeing the customers satisfaction with the service was the most enjoyable part of the job.

Lube Tech/Mechanic (Former Employee) – Orange, CA – July 25, 2017
Working as a lube tech was fun. i had a lot of responsibilities so i always had something to do. my co-workers were lazy people. i would sometimes do 3 cars at a time which i got in trouble multiple times because the cars must have be done within 10 minutes. i did like the challenges but the workplace needed work.
I started working in the spring, when the heat left so did most of the customers. My team was pretty fast and safe and we followed procedure, it was only our manager that would spend most of the workday in the office when they are supposed to help "The Floor".
Plenty of time to clean up and straighten out tools.
I have been working for this company for 7 years. I have been pulled around the district and used like a puppet. Taking away incentives like bonuses and then taking away hours. They have made their company into a high turn over rate company and dont Care for their employees. Now they are going broke because of their greed. So much time and money are wasted do to poor management and greed. Never work for this place. It is a dead end job. Not a career.
