Recommended Posts

Hello evryone i am new here and have a few questions.I have owned my shop for 6 years now and i have 2 techs and a service writer. The problem is that i am tired of their lack of performance the 2 techs walk around as if they own the place one just came in the other day with a blue tooth for his cell phone and i almost flipped a gasket. they are good techs and my shop is busy now but i cant stand it anymore i have talked with them about this a couple of times now and i just want to fire everyone.I have put adds on craigs list but no one worth hiring at this point or we dont get calls at all. I dont know what else to do has anyone been in this boat befor? And my service writer has been under selling jobs at times or makes excuses of why the job was done so cheap and gets upset when i correct him. some help please thanks.

      I need to find some employees fast and I am having no luck, anyone willing to help me write an advertisement or help me with postings, over the phone or through e-mail, please let me know.
      Just found this, not feeling good about this.

      As shop owners, we sometimes feel that we need to answer every question and handle every situation. While you need to be proficient as a business owner, you also need your employees to think for themselves. 

      Empower your people to solve problem.  Ask them for their opinions and don’t be too quick to jump in on every situation.  The more you jump in and solve their problems, the more they will rely on you. This is not to say you don’t have their back; but a team functions best when everyone takes ownership of their position and takes responsibility to take care of problems.

      Will employees make mistakes? Yes.  But there isn’t a shop owner on this planet that has a perfect record at making decisions.  We all make mistakes.

      As a shop owner; teach, mentor and coach.  Include your employees in on decisions that relate to their job position.  When employees feel you trust them, they will begin to solve their own problems. This will set you free to work on the things that will bring you greater success.

      We've been running adds for months, (AdWords, facebook, monster and many other sites) and just can't find quality candidates! I was thinking it was just us, be it the shop, methods or maybe am unsaid reputation but I've been talking to other shops and folks who frequent other shops (tool dealers, part suppliers etc) and they say everyone in a 100 mile radius is hiring but can't find help.
      Any insight? Are we alone in this?

      We recently switched from hourly to flat rate for our techs. I am having a hard time figuring out what to pay an employee if they have taken vacation times. What rate do I pay them at?

      Do you guys ever have contests for your employees? I have 3 service advisors and I like friendly work competition. Also running a 50% off oil change ad on adwords..... so doing a $100 contest to the advisor that has the highest GP average this week.
      First time doing something like this. Hopefully it lights some excitement about their job and no sore losers at the end lol.
