    Pros

    As A Manager, The bonus makes it worth it to an extent. There is always room for expansion. If you want to stick it out, The advancement is awesome.

    Cons

    Labor hours seemed like it would go quick. Fast track careers normally ended up with an employee getting fired at some point. Too muc focus on sales and DOP

    Advice to Management

    Invest more time into training employees. You should not hold them accountable on things that managers teach one place and not another.

    Pros

    Great all around advancements Chance to put managing experience in your resume Laid back Only stressful if you make it stressful Benefits... but for an age 25 and below? Do you really need them? Possible moth end bonus

    Cons

    They expect you to pat your head and rub your stomach at the same time Focus too much on Sales instead of Customer Service No time to actually train you if in busy area "Chain of Command" reiterated instead of "Respect" Never 40 hours even for full-time. Maybe 36 hours max. Hours are extremely spotty as well as days off Bonus is a trap. The more you advance and hit bonus. The higher the goals. Encouraging lying. Too many chiefs not enough Indians

    Advice to Management

    Focal point is listening to your team. Change is hard to do and most revert to their old ways.

    Pros

    Opportunity to advance, great people top to bottom, everyone is approachable, they practice what they preach, working outside. Choosing to work here was best career move I have made

    Cons

    In my position the hardest part is trying to find more great employees. Senior management doesn't invest enough in talent acquisition. It needs to get the Valvoline name out there to the younger generation better(spend money on commercials and advertising at a corporate level)

    Advice to Management

    As big as the company is, a lot more money needs to be invested in getting the name out there through tv advertising. Everyday people ask me what I do and most haven't heard of the company before

    Pros

    Fun, good benefits, decent money and chill

    Cons

    Gotta Kiss butt to advance, All politics, not always 40hrs, sometimes more or less.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being lazy help your works and promote the ones who bust they're but for you not the ones who kiss it, also don't undermind your employees and make them feel worthless, and the area management needs to read evaluate there service center management they don't give a good example to a leader and are lazy and hypocrites. Get the right people in the management jobs not your friends.
