Always running around, no breaks.
Technician (Former Employee), Topside/Bottom-SideJune 1, 2015
Pros: Working on vehicles.
Cons: Immature personel with favoritism.
Terrible experience, the pay is nice, but you'll never get 40 hours a week. Plus the job itself is not worth it, minimal safety gear, I was told I was supposed to provide my own gloves instead of washing my hands.

Working for valvoline can be a really fun job, where you love going to work everyday. but it can also be a job you despise, feel overworked, and underpaid.

I learned a lot from working for Valvoline. I enjoyed the group of men I worked with at that time, learned to do inventory, sales, enter customer data into computer, and give customers the best possible experience possible.

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 (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.
