Employee Discount/Sales

Recommended Posts

I have a new employee that needs to get some tires & asked if he was able to get them at cost or a discounted rate. We don't put much profit on the tires so not a lot of room to offer a discount. I do have other employee's that get for the cost, but they are also family members & in management. I'm curious what do other shops do or offer the employee's.

Thanks

Well, I was thinking 5% across the board. Then the question arose about labor, If he wants to use the shop & tools after hours & is a trusted employee that is not taking advantage of it do you allow it or say no so it don't start something you don't want. If they want to do it on reg shop hours I feel if I'm paying them they should pay full shop rate because I could maybe have that bay full of a paying customer, so what do you all do with labor or shop use?

All tech but one are flat rate so they can work on their own stuff, office help pays 10% off labor and 10% over on parts most times, unless a tech will work on for free after hours or something like that, not a huge company here , only 8 of us and we pretty much take care of one another

I always looked at as they are working for and with me, they make me a good living, giving up profit for an employee was a no brainer. They got cost on parts, they did their own labor without my paying them, so off the clock. All family members got a cost plus on parts and 25% off labor. And they got scheduled as to not disrupt the normal business we had. Helping employees was what helped me keep a crew together for years. I learned a long time go it was very expensive to hire and train a new person, much cheaper to keep good guys happy.

Immediate family only no mark up and no charge for use of bays after hours. I have been doing this for 25 years and it creates a great give and take with all of my employees. Whenever  I need a little more from them they are always give it to me
