Messy Greasy, Hands on Job
CERTIFIED UPPER TECHNICIAN (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 30 January 2014
Mr.Lube taught me lots about vehicle services, maintenance on vehicles and different Models and makes of Car companies Engines, Batteries, and location of every moving component we could replaced under the hood. Everyday would usually start with a coffee, and review of the weeks sales to project the determined amount of sales needed to accumulate for higher workers bonuses. The store would then get fully stocked and product ready for display for higher customer sales. Always busy doing something if no customers in shop, cleaning, stocking ,organizing, preparation of newspapers and drinks for future customers. Management was great, would come help you if you had any questions, come work on a vehicle with you if it's your first time with that model/ Make of vehicle, and ensured the customer would most likely return at that store for their next oil change. Co-workers were great, friendly and helpful. Never had a problem with asking them for help, or reassuring a "silly" question as long as customer was satisfied. I found Co-workers really went out of their way on occasions, really made the work environment a lot more enjoyable to be part of. So the co-workers and knowledge are the best things that came from Mr.Lube. The Hardest part of the job would be looking clean and not greasy playing with the engine parts and oil filters the way we have to.
Working with hands, bonuses, good hours
