Automotive Service Technician (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 23 March 2019
The work was there and with the right staff the days flew by. Even when it was very busy with the staff we had we managed to make it by and still have a great time. It was difficult from time to time to get a message up the chain of command but the higher levels were just about always on top of anything, had a nice sense of humor and very accommodating.

The job would be cool if the management was better. There is a lot of learning that is good, but if you are to make money you need to meet sales goals which are a lot of times unrealistic. The environment becomes very oppressive because the pressure that is put on the managers comes from the top, because of the requirement for sales goals. You also don't get paid for the training tests you do online and for clean up after work. Once all the above are addressed then you will be fine to work here.
Standard automotive work and welcoming workplace environment

The job can vary from changing fluids and filters to changing and balancing tires. Training is rather lengthy in time but is filled with useful job related information. Co-Workers are very welcoming and are very insightful on how to complete jobs safely and efficiently.

Mr.Lube has a lot to teach their employees but mistreat them a lot and lie to them about opportunities a lot managers are good at being technicians but have horrible management skills and experience bonus is taken away over simple things like being two minutes late to work. Co-workers are ok some are lazy and don't care about their work some put an effort in their work most are power hungry.

whatever I don't care, I do not want to write reviews, change oil on vehicles and their filters like man, this is ridiculous, maybe ask people if they want to review their workplaces before forcing them too

Everyday you get to learn something new about different cars. It might be the same thing you did the previous day on a car but it will be different. The team is very friendly and is always there to lend a hand. Manager is a great trainer and helps you do your best.
The work was very enjoyable! The way the managed the staff, not so much.
Automotive Service Adviser/Technician (Former Employee) – London, ON – 22 June 2015
When I worked for Mr. Lube I generally would start by arriving to work about 7:20am to start getting the shop ready for customers by, starting up the computers, turning on equipment and setting up the bays. As my coworkers arrived I would delegate duties for them to get the store ready for the customers. Once I opened the store and customers would pull up I would guide them into the bays inside and begin their oil change service with a 21-point inspection, I would then make manufacturer approved recommendations and perform services as needed. I would also make sure that the other staff were doing well and help if needed. Once my supervisor or manager arrived I would usually go on my 30 min lunch break then continue back to working on cars until my shift was over. The shop would run about 20-40 cars a day and I would do about 5-15 all depending on how busy it was. Although I did very much enjoy the work I did the way that they managed and treated their staff lead me to resign.
Working on cars, close to home at one point, I learned a lot.
Bad management, underpaid, inappropriate shop owner, working 13-14 days in a row regularly.
Mr.Lube is a good place to work if you would like to further your education on mechanics. But has many flaws, for example, the management only cares about how much money they make, not about their employees.
