what do employers look for when hiring ?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering what employers are looking for when hiring mechanics/techs? I am coming to a point where I need to start looking for a new job. I have been at the same place for 26 years. Ase Master tech, L1, state inspection license and master Emission license. I get paid 50% commission with 10 days paid vacation a year and that is it. No other benefits. I do have a guarantee of 1000 a week before taxes.

 

The problem is the shop is not run properly kind of backwards diagnostics don't pay much 50 bucks. Which in to days age is very low in my opinion. It seems that in the last several years pay has gone backwards, probably due to a lot of factors the industry being one. I use to be able to put money away in savings but now a days that is not possible.

 

One of the reasons I am thinking of moving on is I just got a letter from my health insurance that is now going to be over 700 a month and that is even less money I will have. So any advice on what employers are looking for and what most offer now a days will be appreciated. Thanks.
