    Pros

    I like working here for team building and gives you a great sense that your doing good in the world. Its a great feel good feeling until you see your pay check.

    Cons

    Pay and benefits just don't seem right. I have been here a long time and work very hard doing the right thing. My review comes along and I'm told I have to work harder. Never a positive good thing, they keep you down. You get a sense your not good at what you do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do the right thing when you see good talent.

    Pros

    Coworkers and flexible scheduling. Coworkers are fun to work with. Eaay work if management is not breathing down your neck

    Cons

    Upper management micromanages and treats you like crap. Expect to have management stress you into a heart attack with all of their belittling remarks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find another management structure and stop promoting sadists. It goes to their head in a jiffy.

    Pros

    None that i can remember

    Cons

    Where to start. My district manager hardly came to my store. When he did all he wanted to talk about was weight lifting or movies he had seen recently. His boss came to my store once. I had went into the hospital and they fired me a couple weeks later. Coincidence, i think not. They try to get you to upsell the customers with crap they dont need. 62 dollar average ticket was way too high for the area we were in.

    Pros

    Its a job. You dont need tools, they are provided. Flexible schedule, depending on the location and how valuable you are.

    Cons

    Management issues, they are in their own little world and wont change for good ideas. Other employees wont do their job properly so it will come back to you later on.

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

    Pros

    The limited amount of computer-based training helps to prevent total disasters in the working area.

    Cons

    Low pay, little benefits that are prohibitively expensive, constant stress and bullying from higher management, staffing is frequently just slightly more than a skeleton crew, and hours are cut regularly if you do not perform to standard or during the winter, where business is slow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees are treated like robots. There is no company culture or values beyond throwing your fellow employee under the bus to make yourself look good. Replace the lower level employees with actual robots and try to care more about what the customer wants versus what corporate shareholders want.

    Pros

    Gets your foot in the door of the automotive field. Teaches you the basic of all basics.

    Cons

    Terrible pay, Terrible Management, Corrupt All Around. Online training, Hardly hands on, Courtesy Tech SUCKS.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give up some of the profits? Stop cutting bonuses, People cant afford to eat working for you, not even the store managers. Haha, and get some actual waste bins for antifreeze/oil mixed water instead of just dumping it down the drains. This company ought to be shut down for some of the crap we do.

    Pros

    None at all no pros of any kind

    Cons

    Salary is terrible. Managers are immature who feel it's ok to swear at their employees and call them inappropriate names. Upper management didn't even call me when I walked off the job after being sworn at for the umpteenth time. Place is a joke big wigs came buy and told us not to needlessly upsell customers which was the exact opposite of what store manager and district manger forced us to do. Unless you are desperate for a job don't take a positions with this company.
