    I worked at Wash Tub (More than a year)

    Pros

    great place to work if you like to keep your car clean and enjoy cash tips and working in the sun

    Cons

    as an employee you are disposable so the turnover rate is sky high! they break numerous labor laws and are being sued constantly, i havent worked for them in years and still receiving settlement checks from different class action law suits filed by the state.

    Advice to Management

    treat employees with respect and the good ones will stick around, otherwise the work place accidents with customer's 100k plus cars will constantly happen

    Pros

    -Great place to work as a young person. I am 21 and loved the job. Although there were people up to the ages of 50 who I worked with who seemed to not enjoy the extreme work and weather. -Decent money for a young person./ -Some locations are more upscaled as I found myself driving cars such as maseratis and jaguars. It was the highlight of my positions. -Girls.... Need I say more? Mostly everybody is friendly and customers can either be your close friend or worst nightmare.

    Cons

    -Weather can be brutally hot or cold. (August and January) -Management won't always make the right decisions though they try a great deal. It's passive. -The schedule can always change and you may find yourself waking up to take the bus to work at 5 in the morning, only for them to tell you to "TAKE THE DAY".

    Advice to Management

    Everybody will get along just fine if management will be more strict (yes.. strict) on all the employees and not just discipline what seems to be those who aren't the infamous favorites of the store.

    I have been working at Wash Tub full-time

    Pros

    the only positive aspects of the job that I can think of or that you work with a diverse group of people and the ability to make tips as a finisher.

    Cons

    I wouldnt give this company even one star but that wasnt an option...This is a terrible place to work. You are required to do unrealistic work in an unrealistic amount of time with outstanding quality but it's contradicting because there is no way humanly possible that you can clean the car to the degree they expect you to and a 20 minute time span. They do not appreciate their employees whatsoever and continue to change policies and procedures in order to protect themselves and have personal gain. They are dishonest with their customers and do not take any complaints about damages to vehicles seriously. They make excuses and cover up and manipulate and are just downright shady. You are expected to micromanage your employees to the point that they hate you and make your job miserable. The employees work very hard and do what is asked of them and it goes without appreciation and then they add more work for you on top of that. If it's a bad weather day you must have your employees call back. You are only allowed to have them call back twice so it nearly impossible to get them to come into work when you need them because they have already wasted their entire day with call backs. This is unfair to them. Either have your employees come into work or let them get on with their day. They have cameras in and outside the property and they watch you constantly. They have access to the video from their personal devices so they can even watch you from their home. There are way too many problems to list here. Take my advice and don't waste your time with this company. You will regret it!

    Advice to Management

    This advice is for the corporate office and the area directors. Be honest, have integrity and start caring for your employees.

    Pros

    The best parts of working here are almost certainly: - You get to work outside - Get a great tan - Simple work - Flexible hours - 8am-6:30pm, not too early, easy closing and time after work - (can be good or bad, depending) If it rains or is overcast, you likely will not have to work, if it's very slow, there is a chance you will be able to go home several hours early - Be friendly and you will make friends The BEST part, and saving grace about this job is finishing. If you are a diligent and hard working employee, and after a month or so ask, you can be promoted up a couple times to where you'll finish cars. At a busy location like mine, if you don't suck you can make anywhere from $35-$75 a day from tips (With hourly pay, you're making 13$ a hour, 1/2 of which is tax free) When you're 18 and making over $130 a day it's hard to say you'd rather do something else. If you want, you could work here for 3 years, go through the management training and become a service advisor and make like 30-50k a year with a highschool diploma.

    Cons

    Interview paper says you agree to "Extreme hot/cold". They mean this, you are outside at 8am if they tell you to. If you don't dress properly, it will immediately become an extremely miserable experience. If it's hot outside, bring alot of water. There will be days you will drink over 1/2 a gallon and never bleed the lizard the whole day. - 1 bathroom shared by 40 people - schedules change suddenly due to weather - using your phone during work = job loss - If it rains for 4 days, you do not work for 4 days. This will reflect on your check and next week when you will work 60 hours in 6 days. - It is not uncommon for management to forget to give you a break, several times people have gone in at 8 and not sit down or eat until 6. If you remind them, they will allow you. - They may put you with inefficient or odd characters. Not an odd sight to see a 19 year old girl partnered up with a 65 year old who doesn't speak english. - Busy days are living hells - Butch lesbians with folding knives, ex cons and oppressive heat will make you tough as nails

    Advice to Management

    Recognize who the good kids you hire are, and the good workers, partner them together. Listen to their complaints about other employees.

    I worked at Wash Tub full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It was a fun experience. Employees treat each other like family. Easy Money. A good job to work for while looking for a better one.

    Cons

    As the title says, poor management. It is difficult for a car washer to accumulate hours, because the weather plays a huge role on one person's schedule. They don't really give a coaching, they either write you up or terminate you on the spot.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is always key. There should be ways to recover hours while weather conditions are poor. Like, instead of having supervisors clean up, try to work with the other employees who care about their hours.


  9. A good start for high school students... a job for college students.

    I have been working at Wash Tub full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The understand if you have school and they will do the best they can to work with your schedule. Corporate is very good with employees. Able to enjoy free time in the evening. There is great communication (but only in certain stores. Holidays off.

    Cons

    Not a job you can depend on for solid income. Most positions are minimum wage, and hours completely depend on the weather conditions. There will be days when the store will be completely closed and there is not a lot of benefits for employees below management (understandable since employees come and go so quickly). Hard to get a break on busy days (drink lots of water in the summer!).

    Advice to Management

    The growth of the company is amazing. I am sure in the future, there will be more benefits for the employees.

    I have been working at Wash Tub full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Free car washes Great job for college students

    Cons

    The company is awful. Everything about this company is unprofessional. Upper management needs to change. They do not try to keep their good employees. They do not offer opportunity for career advancement and growth. Managers are treated horrible and that reflects how they treat their employees. The hours are unpredictable and breaks are not guaranteed. There is no break area and you have to be off the property during your break. This job wears you down until you end up quitting and they do nothing to try to keep you. In addition, most job offer no marketable skills for further employment.

    Pros

    They offer flexible scheduling. Able to make plenty of money with tips. Fast paced environment.

    Cons

    The weather determines how many hours you work per week or how much money you make. You have to work in any condition doesn't matter if it is 100 degrees or 30 degrees outside.
