Complaint / review text:
Went to Valvoline Instant Oil Change today to fill out application for Employment, (Note: I am currently in college to become an Auto Service Technician) I talked to one guy who was working and he told me no experience was needed. He then told me that I needed to go online to apply for the job, and gave me a card with the website address. I came home got on my computer and first thing I had to do was register before I could fill out the application (???). Okay now after I registered I had to fill out the resume then once that was done I had to take a test! Oh okay no problem right? Yeah Big Problem The test had nothing to do with the job I was applying for (Service Tech) Also I had 5 minutes to answer questions that again had nothing to do with being a service tech.
The Questions were too confusing for me to explain on here. After the 5min was up I was directed to the next section which was unbelievably a compatibility test (like the ones you fill out on dating sites) Some of the questions were understandable but most of them again had nothing to with the job.
Finally I completed the test and was directed to next section which OH Bummer I failed (Hmm I wonder Why?) Now I have to wait 3 months before i can take the test again, ummmmm nope not gonna do it. I have never had to, EVER complete a test and take a compatibility test when applying for a job. Is this a ripoff. I think so. If the test was more related to job okay but random questions and compatibility test is going way to far.
