    I worked at Valvoline full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great coworkers. If you like Working with your hands it can be a lot of fun . Great employee discount for oil changes. Oil changes are recorded for our liability and customer satisfaction (customer can't claim you left didn't add oil if you're on camera adding oil) if you have a good manager you'll have all the tools you need and do a oil change the proper way

    Cons

    Once you become a CSR it's very high pressure to make sales goals. No commission. All your training tells you to not be a high pressure salesmen and to be truthful and never lie to make a sale. Some stores tho depending on managers will straight up tell you to make high pressure sales and tell the customer what they want to hear to make your sales goal. If you do not reach sales goal you cannot and will not be promoted. If you have a bad manager you'll be missing tools and the shop you work at will be filthy
