    I worked at Jiffy Lube full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Best reasons to work there it’s a great learning experience towards the ins and outs of cars. Also you get relax and do nothing while they’re no vehicles in the bay depending on the manager you have. Also full timers work Monday - Friday weekends off depending what store you work at. Also it’s an automatic 40 hours sometimes even overtime.

    Cons

    The hourly pay is terrible $8.50 I mean you would expect to get payed a lot more for what you do in that job. But you don’t also you have to deal with harsh cold weather and super hot temperatures. Dealing with lazy coworkers. Management always lie and never tell the truth also as a manager they make sure you are dedicated to them as if your they’re slave. I repeat do not BE A MANAGER if you are ready to deal with the BS they’re going to give you. Lastly the managers will give you crap wether your not meeting numbers of sales and always tell you straight up that your position is available at all cost. As well you have to pay 16 dollars every check for your uniforms because they clean them just ridiculous and a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Raise the hourly pay first of all $8.50 is pathetic and not a stable income to even live in a house. Provide gloves beanies and jackets instead of charging them to buy it. Have a teaching programs on CSA but make it consistent. Also you have got to be more appreciative and straight forward towards new assistant and managers instead of lying to them about salary bonuses and days off. Also to stop treating them like animals.
