    I have been working at Valvoline full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Tuition reimbursement, lots of oversight, tons of resources on the job, company culture makes it easy to perform and seek help if necessary.

    Cons

    Physically demanding, not a lot of "sideways" movement into other similar jobs, generally escalator. Can be VERY high stress due to nature of the business.

    Advice to Management

    I would highly recommend upper management keeps an eye on the managers in their newer acquisitions. Not all of them have acclimated to the new company policies thoroughly.

    Pros

    Pay is above minimum wage

    Cons

    Work in any condition. Covered by freezing melting water in winter when it snows
    They will literally hire anybody with any form of management experience to be an Asst. Manager. Especially the ones with sales background even with no mechanical inclination.
