    I have been working at Jiffy Lube part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Everyone in the company is nice and glad to work for the company. Jiffy Lube provides 10 uniforms shirts and pants. I can show up in my clothes and change into the work uniform for my shift, and then change back in the locker room before I leave. This was really important to me because it saves me the money for washing work clothes, and buying work clothes. In addition I do not have to worry about oil getting in my car or in the house. The training has been excellent so far. I have only done one or two oil changes in my life, but so far the training program has been great.

    Cons

    The only thing I feel I should mention is the job gets dirty sometimes, so be aware of that going into this job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide tools and ladders to shorter employees, on some vehicles it can be hard to reach the oil filter.

    I've heard that some other store managers (I was one) are mean and pushy. That doesn't work, guys.

    I have been working at Jiffy Lube full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    As a manager there's nothing really good it's easy hours as a manager you need to put in is 50 hours a week. It's easy to move up but give it your best shot or you will get replaced very easy.

    Cons

    There's constant fear of loosing your job the word fired get thrown around alot. You do not get raises and you can't give them out to your employees. The company does not care welcome to the McDonald's of oil changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should honestly pay people more to expect the things they wan't or offer raises to the ppl who are actually doing the job.

    Pros

    Fast paced work environment, can be fun at times and some managers are laid back.

    Cons

    It is a total money driven corporation. All they care about is their bottom line. Our store made over a million dollars a year, we have plaques to prove it, but the bonuses the techs get arent even worth the time and effort we put in to making the big money. They look at employers as totally expendable assets just there to line their pockets. There is also a lack of accountability by managers. They pin their problems on the technicians and degrade their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share some of the big money the backbone of your company makes you and treat us like you care.
