Hey all. I'm just curious if anyone has experienced and dealt with an obvious case of observed favoritism in a shop between a service manager and technician. Let's say for example 4 man shop, non-union, and no open door policy. I'm looking for ideas and suggestions whilwst I pull the resume off and blow the dust off. Thanks

its worse when the service mgr (female) is humping one of the lead techs and your'e the other lead tech and you do a better job than the humpee but the service mger knows this and she wants her humpee to be king of the hill so you get sabotaged and boom you are out the door
move on dude nothing to see here

I agree. Never thought of the female service manager/ tech scenario. Proves others are worse off than me. Moving on is the best choice. It will catch up to them someday. I personally don't believe in dipping my pen in company ink. If you know what I mean.
I have a hard time believeing there isnt some sort of favoritism everywhere unless your a one man shop. Oh wait.... I guess in that case I would show favoritism to myself.

I agree. I'm sure in most places a small amount of favoritism is bound to happen. I feel when a favored tech gets 100% of best jobs, training, and first in line for all goodies without thought to others word spreads from rat to rat and they start baling out. I see it happening to our shop real some. I went on an initial interview today. Guess I'm one of the 1st rats with a life vest. LOL
