Best part time job to learn and grow

Hi guys, I have very minimal knowledge on cars. Oil change, tire rotation, wiper blades etc. I'm also going off to college in the fall and will need a new job, so my question is where would be the best place for me to work to learn more about fixing/servicing cars? I was thinking jiffy lube because I hear they prefer you not to know much so they can train you their way. I've also herd it's a terrible place to work lol open to any suggestions!

I suggest to find a small independent general repair shop.You will start out doing o.l.f. changes,tires,etc.,while learning from everyone else the repair end of it.


Cherish those around you,for at the blink
of an eye,they can be gone.

This is why i dont go to jiffy lube or anywhere similar
I did all my learning working on my own cars and trucks. I always had junky vehicles so I learned a lot.
