It is a form of flat rate it can and does work well in most situationsOriginally posted by gruvn
So my vehicle is being worked on by a mechanic that is in a hurry ?Originally posted by neophytes serendipity
An automotive mechanic provides his own tools, but the pay is based on "beating" an established book time. In other words, you book 60 hours for the week, work 40 and get paid for 60. Therefore, there is some incentive to buy your own tools, especially the cheater ones that save time.

Is this really how they do it ?
Are theestimated times sufficeint enough that the mechanic can beat them easily , or is he just slamming stuff in it ?
Is he even doing half the work that he writes down ?
I will ask the dealer next time I go how the mechanics get paid, and if this is true, I will go elsewhere.
You see gruvn if a tech or mechanic that is not afraid to work for a living would have a whole lot to gain by being paid this way
I have been trying to get to a system like it, this form of earning is more fair for both the employer and the employee (well at least if the employee is not lazy)
