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

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

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.

great place to work at when your first starting in the automotive world, the pay is good for the work you do and they give alot of opportunity to advance in the workplace if they see you have the skills
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.

Working at Jiffy Lube was an great opportunity for me. As a female you never see too many working at an automotive business. Once you get used to your job duty , you'll be great ! Besides if you don't know anything about cars , they WILL teach you everything you need to know.
Store Manager (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – July 21, 2017
Corporate makes decisions and holds managers accountable and the managers can't do anything. The DMs promise, never act. Greed and lies run this company. only people that care are the people that actually work at the stores and know what it's like. They say it's for the guest. "If it is to be, is up to me." A slogan from corporate office. You have nothing to do with it, you are a puppet for their decisions and you end up taking the fall for it.
Lube Technician (Current Employee) – Lacey, WA – July 20, 2017
A typical day at work would be prepping the lube bays for services insuring all parts are readily available when customers arrive. Also insuring the customer lounge is clean with fresh coffee waiting. I have learned how to service various vehicles and the different types of oils offered for services and how they may make a different in vehicle performance. Management is good at working with the employees in regards to holidays, vacations and any other situations where you may need to alter your schedule.
for those wanting a full time shift the hours are limited
It was a alright job, it kept me busy throughout my whole shift with fast paced work. It did get boring at times but other then that, I liked it. Moving up in the company wasn't the easiest an neither was getting a raise, but if your looking for a job that gives hours, this one is more of a hit or miss.
Cleaner/Maintenance (Current Employee) – Des Moines, IA – July 17, 2017
Mostly my days at Jiffy Lube everything goes well its just rushed & we all have to do everything at a fast pace & we also deal with weather. The manage is great , we just aren't staffed built. The hardest thing at Jiffy Lube is dealing with co-workers & dealing with them cause not everybody is as nice as they should be & its hard to be apart of team as we should be.
