Make sure he tightened the drain screw tight .... and of course ,, make sure you have oil in the engine.

Right, also check the oil filter area. Did you just have an oil change?

I have the same issue, originally i blamed jiffy lube and they were not conclusive with an answer, they just did the customer service thing and re did the oil change. Weeks later I'm pouring oil out once again... my mechanic said to bring is to Hyundai that the leak is not related to oil pan plug or filter he said to have them check into something behind the heat shield above the drain plug... so more to follow.... the general area is passenger side close to the firewall.

Having the same issue with my 2012 Sonata. What ended up being the problem? Expensive fix or covered under warranty?
