I worked at Mr Lube full-time (Less than a year)
The environment is relaxed and the work is not stressful. Plenty of downtime to work on the training videos.
Managers can be quite young and inexperienced. It's good to have hard workers to maintain workplace flow when it becomes busy. The pay is not that great also.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Mr Lube (Mississauga, ON (Canada)) in September 2013.
Initial call and in-person interview with a 3rd party recruiter. In-person meeting with hiring manager (who totally wowed me, even though the physical workspace did not). Telephone meeting with Human Resources (as company is headquartered in 2 cities and HR and some Executives are based in the other office). In-person meeting with 2 Senior Executives based in local office (2 meetings were planned but they offered to combine the meetings to make the meeting shorter but let me choose which format I preferred - another clear indication that the culture was a friendly one). Travel to other HQ (paid for by the company) to do intensive all-morning session with 2 additional Senior Executives. Was asked to create a presentation to show how I would strategize in the role and a plan for the 1st 100 days if I got the job.
