Tech Pay; Too high? Too Low? Or Just right?

Recommended Posts

A fellow shopowner friend of mine was looking to hire a mechanic. He said he needed an A level tech, with experience. He did find a few, but he was surprised at what they were asking. I did not ask him what he was willing to pay a qualified experience tech, but I did say that qualified people need to get paid what they deserve. I didn't feel it was my place to say more, unless he offered more information.

 

In general do we pay our techs too much, not enough or is the pay just right and proportionate to what we can afford?

      Just wondering how many lifts do other shops have per tech? We have 5 lifts with 3 &1/2 techs and we still need more. To add more lifts we need a expansion and then we need to try to find a quality tech.

      You spend a lot of time and money finding an hiring an employee. Whether it be a technician, service advisor or office worker.  However, the real work to ensure that the new employee is up and running begins when you hire that person.  Don't make the mistake of thinking that a new-hire can be put to work without an orientation period. No matter how experienced someone may be, take the time to slowly acclimate that person to your shop, your other employees and your systems and procedures. The time you take in the beginning will help to create a long-lasting employee relationship.
