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

    Pros

    I didn't have high expectations going into this job, but I left having received excellent customer service training. If you work hard, you can get a CSR bonus at the end of the month. In the shop I was at, there was a lot of room for advancement. I was there less than a year and I was being trained for management roles.

    Cons

    You can't leave work and go out. Expect to need a shower, you'll be gross. I worked at a franchise location, and there was a lot of turnover in the management of our shop. This was hard.

    Pros

    Easy work, a lot of good people, and the fast paced environment makes days go by much faster than an office job.

    Cons

    Meeting too many and unrealistic goals can be a bit stressful. Communication is poor and the the micromanagement is really over done.

    Advice to Management

    Be more involved in management to help them succeed and give more positive feedback
