I like a job where I am going to stay busy
Assistant Manager (Current Employee), lexington kyApril 18, 2015
I work in a fast paced and high stress environment. I have been employed there for four years this June and have been a member of management since my first year there. The hardest part of my job is trying to be everywhere at once. The most enjoyable is being able to talk to new people everyday.

Fast Paced, Critical Thinking Environment
Senior Technician (Current Employee), AnnapolisApril 17, 2015
Work is consistently busy.
I've learned a ton about cars, how they work, people and how they work and how to manipulate tools.
Management is normally peers: not over-bearing.
Co workers are supportive and want to learn as much as you do. The hardest part of the job is dealing with customers' issues.
The most enjoyable part is that feeling you get when a customer tells you how great they car runs because of service you have done.

Lackadaisacal work.
Forklift Operator (Former Employee), Hernando, MSApril 2, 2015
Pros: Had an hour lunch.
Cons: Boring.
Wasn't really exciting. The job payed well but not very entertaining. Much older crowd. Hardest part was working with a lot of women. Most enjoyable was our funny, loving boss.

It's a franchise so there's that
Repair Shop Manager (Former Employee), Buffalo NYMarch 20, 2015
Pros: great employees
Cons: no exceptions made for locations with differing needs
The franchise I worked for, Buffalo Lube Associates, was poorly run. The premise of the franchise for Valvoline Instant Oil Change is great and if run properly, can be a great opportunity for someone looking to get into auto mechanics

Long hours, understaffed
Asst. Manager (Current Employee), Louisville, kyMarch 19, 2015
Very long hours, in an understaffed environment. You will be told that it is not a sales job, (because commission is not payed), but it very much is a sales job.

Technician
Technician (Former Employee), Lake Forest, CAMarch 17, 2015
you learn how to perform services that you can personally do on your own vehicle. Co-workers were fun and edgy at times. Hardest part would be changing belts and working in the hot weather. Most enjoyable part would be the fun atmosphere, the joking around to make the long days go by smoother. Would recommend as a part time or temporary position its not somewhere you want to stay forever or can make a career out of. but it was a great experience and i learned alot from it.

Oil Change Industry just not my thing.
Senior Service Center Technician (Former Employee), Mount Juliet, TNFebruary 25, 2015
I worked for VIOC for a few years. They seem to focus more on money than employees being part of the actual team. Not my most favorite job.

Waste of 3 yrs
Technician (Former Employee), Mankato, MNFebruary 23, 2015
The only way to advance is if you are a great salesmen. Everyone else is treated like trash. It is very much a "good old boys" network of people.

fun place to work
Senior Technician / New York State Inspector (Former Employee), Rochester, NYFebruary 5, 2015
Pros: fun atmosphere
Cons: you can sell the most in your store and still make as much as the guy who does the least in sales
fast paced work environment, they teach you all you need to know although prior knowledge in cars or selling is a plus. each store is very competitive between another in sales and volume of cars. high sales for car services but it is not a commission based so don't expect a increase or piece of the services you sell. but the team atmosphere is great and everyone truly does work together keeping it fun most of the time
