Loved what i was doing , working on cars , small repairs , oil changes. But the management was horrible , giving me hope of becoming a supervisor , then telling me i wont be getting it after me being there for over a year .
Great entry level automotive job with great owner.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 27 February 2017
I Worked at the Oil Changers at 4592 King street east for many years and enjoyed every minute of it. Though I had previous car experience before working there, being able to work on all makes and models allows for a broad range of experience. So if you are looking to work on cars in any capacity, it is well worth the time to work there get some basic knowledge and foundation.
Also, I must credit the owner for making my experience there truly worthwhile. He is patient, understanding and a great guy to talk with, honestly could not give him enough praise.

Supervisor, lube tech, key holder (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 5 July 2016
love my work no matter the job but sometimes the headache around the job isnt worth it meaning management and co workers if you cant get over certain co workers and how they act or run things this isnt a place for you to work
Great work environement with a competitive attitude to be the best
Emission test inspector (Former Employee) – Ottawa – 14 July 2015
Starting out at oil changer's i was taught very quickly how to change the oil of a vehicle , change the oil filter, check every fluid and other filter that i could find, in the quickest way possible. We had an average of 120 cars per day and all were done in about 10 minutes. In no time you become a pro , and learn to love that fast passed environment.
After doing oil changes for a couple months i was sent to do an Ontario issued test to become an emission test inspector. After i passed , my shifts consisted of being the only E-test ( emission test) inspector for the day or night. I was running my own little garage conducting safety tests on vehicles to identify the ones who would pass or not.
I loved working with cars and that competitive, fast passed environment. Most of my job was very enjoyable and i still love doing it to this day.
Working with cars, Fast passed competitive environment, great co-workers
Mechanic (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 28 April 2014
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 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.
it was a family run shop, I lasted six years till I realized that there was no growth.
Lube Technician & Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Kingston, ON – 18 April 2013
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 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.
Courtesy/Service (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 23 February 2013
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 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.
you'll learn alot about cars, good team work and an information database of car specs.
line ups happen and you can become busy for hours.
