express oil change rip off customers treat employees poorly madison, Alabama
*UPDATE EX-employee responds: I've seen it too!
thats dealership prices with shade tree quality work and miscellaneous shop fees. half the "mechanics" that work there are not ASE certified when they advertise the mechanics are certified installing the auto zone brakes on your car for $300 or more!. the upper management threatens to fire anyone over the slightest mishap that goes on so the employees are on constant worry about being terminated for making a honest mistake no matter how minor it is. now lets get to the oil change part itself.. $45 bucks for a basic oil change with bulk oil does that seem just a tad bit high priced?? yes it is. but they insist that its a fair price for the service that you are receiving by washing your front window with dirty soapy water and spraying your doors with oil and grease everytime you get your oil changed..
cars these days do not need the doors sprayed every 3 months.. they preach to the employees about not upselling anything to the customer that they do not need but yet if we do not meet our weekly target they chew us out and magically everyone is trying to sell air filters or transmission services that next week... they have categories that each store has to meet and if lets say they are down on fuel filters this week then every customer that comes in magically needs a fuel filter that week and try to sell them that service if not throwing the whole book at them if its a elder person or a female. also they say they lube the chassis and check the differential fluid maybe 4 cars out of 80 get that done that come in each day just depends if the manager is in "the pit" or not. $35 bucks for some $10 wiper blades? come on!!
i hated every part of working at that place i do not like to rip people off and certainly do not feel like its fair to the customers that they do not know the inside details. i am fortunate enough to have got myself a much better job where i do not feel like my work "owns" me and having to worry about being terminated everyday i come in. this is just some information i just wanted to pass along to the general public yes its a "10 minute" oil change but is $45 worth it to you? also dont let me forget about the upselling of premium oil the "max life" oil that does absolutely nothing for your engine it does not whatsoever stop oil leaks or oil consumption at all its all a joke and waste of extra $15 bucks all that stuff does is gunk up your engine over time. the $80 synthetic oil change thats even worse!!
