    I applied online – interviewed at Valvoline.

    Got a call within a few days after applying. Interviewed over the phone with Store Manager and had a sit down interview with the same guy. Then had a 2nd interview with the Store Owner on a Friday. The following Tuesday I had an 4 hour orientation and first day of work was that Thursday. Started making $10.00 and hour as a tech. You get a pay raise after your first two months if you keep up with your training book.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Valvoline (Torrance, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Applied onlive via Snagajob. Took 4 months to be called in looking at an outdated resume.

    Overall the manger was awesome and the questions were really basic. Anyone with employment history can easily answer them.

    I did so well I got the manager to ask the district manager to bypass the second interview. Just have the mentality of a team player.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Valvoline in January 2015.

    Interview

    An employee telephoned and didn't leave a message. So, I looked up the number in the White Pages, saw it was a business I had applied with, and returned the call. The manager was not available, so an employee took my name and number as a message. The result was the job board here in Long Beach referred me back to Career Builder which had done nothing for the previous seven years.

    Interview

    Went well with the interview, no issues. According to the the job description there is supposedly a 15/per hour average salary. Misguiding information. A job is better than nothing but If you decide to sell out for the "competitive wages" , surely one wont get far up in life.

    Negotiation

    Take it or leave attitude.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Valvoline (Fort Worth, TX) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Basically, do not stress it, I don't know why you're even here. I've always been extremely go getting about worrying about interviews and this interview was almost a joke. Don't expect anything other than the basic questions you'd get asked anywhere else. They basically ask you "are you really really sure you want to work here" and if you say yes you're probably fine. One of my coworkers said his interview they just talked about animals for an hour. Know what your interest are, whether you're willing to work in various temperatures, and how to smile and say "I want the job" and you'll have it. The interview process was a little tedious though as almost everyone goes through about three interview processes.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Valvoline (Huntington Beach, CA) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Expect to fill out an online application and online personality test to see if you're a good initial fit. Then got a call two days after for a brief phone interview, asking about myself, then scheduled an in person interview for the next day. All was well until I actually went in for my interview with the manager. I came in 20 minutes early and waited for over an hour to get started with the interview because the manager was supposedly busy, even though there were only two cars being serviced by six people. Even the manager admitted during the interview that they weren't busy at all that day which made me wonder why he made me wait over an hour for a minimum wage job. When meeting the manager and starting the interview, he gave me the sense that he already made up his mind about not hiring me for some reason. The manager kept getting distracted checking out a girl that was applying for the same job. He had a few pages of interview questions that I assume is from Valvoline but didn't seem to really care to properly interview me (he actually did say for several questions, "eh, I don't care about this... whatever... whatever"). The manager was totally unprofessional from start to finish and it says a lot that the lower level workers acted much more professionally than him.
