Very unorganized

Store Manager (Former Employee)
Arnold, MO (US)

I worked at Jiffy Lube full-time for more than a year

ProsTraining is done on a daily basis.

ConsThere is no such thing as a 40 hour work week.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet as much as you can up front for a salary. There has been GM's there over 3 years that haven't seen a raise.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Good high school job

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Jiffy Lube

Prosworking at jiffy lube taught me very valuable skills in terms of upkeep on cars. I think it is a great job for any high school kid.

ConsSomething dealing with customers that immediately thought they were better than you was frustrating. Also, the schedule is pretty inflexible.

No intelligence required

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Houston, TX (US)

I have been working at Jiffy Lube full-time for more than a year

ProsI'm able to plan days off when I need them and I really don't have to concentrate too hard at what I'm doing while getting paid.

ConsCo-workers are typically less intelligent than you which causes you to pick up their slack. Instead of getting rid of the retards, they just hire more of them. I could work open to close with 2 employees of equal caliber and get twice as much done with half the complaints and returns. They highly discourage you from getting overtime. In fact, full time status dropped from 32 hours minimum to 30.

Despite everything I do for them, I still haven't been offered to be a store manager. I do my managers job better than him anyway. If I had the title as well, things would change for the better in a heartbeat.

Advice to Senior ManagementPaying me 1.5/hour overtime would be better than paying 2/hour for two lazy, incompetent employees that give you half the results.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Decent Summer Job

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Jiffy Lube

ProsFun place to get to see/hear concerts, easy job - good for college kids who are home on break

ConsCan get hit on frequently by drunk people, long periods of standing - sometimes in brutal heat; they got new supervisors and they didn't seem to know what they were doing...it made the job miserable and not worth coming back for another season.
