When you own a Valvoline Instant Oil Change (VIOC) franchise, you not only have the recognition of a national icon – the Valvoline name, but you also have the benefit of our world class franchise training programs and tools.

We have developed a top-notch training system by leveraging over 25 years of experience in 270+ company-owned stores.

Talent Spotting for Superior Potential

Attracting great employees is key to your success. Our franchise recruitment system pulls from national job sites and employee referrals. Our screening tool helps you quickly eliminate the bottom applicants and pinpoint the top candidates to ensure that you find the best talent.

Onboarding Procedure for New Employees

Once you have employees, we have an onboarding program we refer to as Orientation “in a box”. It is a ready-made program that describes our history, culture and safety procedures using developed materials and videos.

Leadership Training and Involvement

Through classroom training, store-level employees learn about controlling costs, managing labor, controlling inventory, coaching direct reports, evaluating store performance and much more. Senior managers hone their skills in managing high-performance teams and improving business results using leading consulting programs, plus VIOC’s own proprietary training.

VIOC University Opens Career Paths

The VIOC University offers over 60 online courses from entry-level through senior management. It covers the basics from inventory control to service procedures.  These online courses give your employees the opportunity to earn our coveted “Super-Pro” certification. Your manager candidates benefit from either the SCM turbo program for fast track service management or from first-time manager training. You give your employees the chance to follow a career path – and track them along the way with our robust reporting system.

Employee Bench Planning

We have an online tool for bench planning that helps you identify and track an employee’s readiness to assume additional responsibilities. The system integrates with the employee performance evaluation, preparing you for when changes in personnel are necessary.

Train-the-Trainer – In-house Experts

When you are ready, we can teach your qualified employees to train others so that you have ready-built, in-house experts.

With all of the VIOC training units working together, you get the benefits of integration to recruit, train, manage, and retain the best employees thanks to our world-class franchise training programs.
