Mechanic (Former Employee), Toronto, ONApril 28, 2014
Pros: management, staff is like a family
Cons: non
My days at Oil Changers was very enjoyable. I would go in during the afternoon and finish around 8. During the day we had 2 or 3 staff working on individual vehicles to help maintain them. I have learnt a lot from everyone that i worked with such as patience, handyman skills, how to control my emotions, how to read customers and understand them. There – more... was no hard part to the job realistically. The most enjoyable part of the job is that everyone knew each other and helped each other when in time of need. – less

Lube Technician & Sales Representative (Former Employee), Kingston, ONApril 18, 2013
Pros: mondays off
Cons: biasis
oil changers is a fast past oil and small mechanics shop, overall the job itself was good, i needed more for my future i began asking about moving up or getting more hours, i was brushed off and told once one comes available its yours. Once one came open the bosses son who has four years under me got the job. I took a look around and realized that all – more... the staff was related and they all have moved up over time but my self.just didn't seem right. my family counts on me and this job was more of a job than a career. – less

Courtesy/Service (Former Employee), Ottawa, ONFebruary 23, 2013
Pros: you'll learn alot about cars, good team work and an information database of car specs.
Cons: line ups happen and you can become busy for hours.
The thing about Oil Changers is that you are confined to a small open area with the majority of people around you being male.

There is an incentive where you earn bonus and double bonus for servicing 70 and 80 cars a day with an average of 50$ a vehicle.Unlike Mr.Lube, we don't insist you buy engine flushes or wiper blades but we do offer you the option.

You – more... also have the chance to get E-testing specialist and your hourly wage increases. Over time and if you have a good owner. I sure you will because people who own Oil changers become millionaires, they are going to gradually increase your wage to keep you on their team.

Interesting things that have happened were hearing and seeing Ferraris often. If your favorite car came in, you would be the one to e-test and or drive it on the lot. Boss always bought us McDonalds or Timhortons. Gave us candy during Halloween, we grew mustaches for Movember, we decorated the shop and over time we collect thank you letters of appreciation of how well we were in customer service. I would recommend everybody to visit Oil Changers for professional work and an easy 9 minutes of less fix to your vehicles life. – less

Lube Technician (Former Employee), San Carlos, CAFebruary 11, 2014
having an experience with them was amazing, something that you might never knew is how vehicles need service in a period of time.

i learned a lot about cars, you will never knew that having a oil change every 3000 miles will help you vehicle to last long in working time ( running ). I wouldn't say a hard part of the job would be getting dirty with – more... oil, since you working on, but there is some dirtiness as my view. The Co-workers were nice with me since starting as a new job and not having a knowledge about it they were always there to help you. – less

Not a job you want to be at long
Lube Technician (Former Employee), Alameda, CAJanuary 17, 2013
Pros: part time, nice manager
Cons: stuck in early 90s
Very easy job, but disorganized, slow, and unregimented as a fast pace vehicle lube business, its about quality service but also speed and efficiency. What helps you do this is when a team is organized so its in sync like a body. Working here....what should of been 10 min services ended up being 20-30 min even without major ancillaries. After being – more... on a more organized team at my original similar job, it was tough stepping down to oil changers – less
