flat rate technician Q&A Review

How do mortgage lenders view income for flat rate technicians? (Details in post)

The lender will look at last year’s W-2 and a current month’s pay stubs to determine his income. Depending on how his income is listed on his pay stubs, the lender may view some or all of his income as commission. If that is the case, he’ll have to document a two-year history of receiving it. In most cases, they’ll average it over a two-year period. I hope this is helpful.

What are the laws around unemployment and flat rate work? I know someone who is told they have to work in COVID-19 and their employer won’t fire them, and they are a flat rate technician.

If you have a paying job then you are not entitled to unemployment because you are not unemployed. Your friend should be happy that he/she has a job; precautions for working around others are well documented so COVID-19 should not be an issue.

What is the difference between getting a flat rate pay and hourly pay as a technician?

Duh! Flat rate is by the job. Replacing hard drive pays $X. Replacing CD/DVD/BLURAY drive pays $Y. Replacing screen pays $Z.

Can an Automotive Technician be paid a salary, or is hourly/flat-rate the only option?

That depends on who is hiring the Automotive Technician. Most techs can make more on flat rate than they can on hourly, and would beat most salaried rates by even more. Unless you need a body on call, and won’t have the work there to keep your tech busy, he would generally prefer the flat rate plan.

People who live in states that have passed a $15 an hour minimum wage, does that include flat rate hourly paid workers such as auto technicians?

What do you mean “flat rate hourly paid workers”? The flat rate constitutes payment per job as opposed to paying per hour.

What's the shadiest thing you've seen a car mechanic do?

I’ve seen some pretty bad stuff in my 40 years wrenching. I worked for a dealership that paid a flat rate as most do. Many times I’d witnessed timing belt jobs not being done yet the customer was still getting charged over a grand per job. Alignments checks where a tire is nudged a bit so it appears it’s needed. After 3 years I quit and have slept a lot better at night since doing so. Sawdust added to the differential to quiet the rear end down I witnessed at another shop I worked at. Oil filters wiped cleaned but not changed. A huge Good Year I worked for was going out of business without informing the technicians until a week before closing. Needless to say, there were a few upset technicians. The day before they closed the techs were literally kicking the rack legs under the car instead of setting them safely and raising the cars. 10 shops in 40 years. Honda, Firestone, Good Year, Chevron, and Sears Auto Center to name a few. Out of the 10 shops, 4 were trustworthy. Not a very good average. Most of these crooked shops are flat rate with incentives to sell jobs that aren’t needed. The technicians are given a bad name. Yet most of the time it's because they are pushed to sell things so the service writer and managers can make their bonuses every month. In other words, shit rolls downhill, and automotive technicians, are at the bottom covered in it. Feel free to edit my writing skills suck. Good luck and hope this helps.

How do prices for car repairs done at the dealership compare to those done at an independent garage?

Generally on par with each other. The biggest factor is in the labor charges, and whether the techs are paid by "flat-rate" or by salary/hourly wages. In flat rate, each vehicle repair has a set time (an unfair one for the customer) for completion. This time is established using standard tools. A good flat-rate technician can easily put in 60 flat-rate hours in a 40-hour work week. The auto dealerships are almost exclusively flat-rate, meaning that the customer is often overcharged, in relation to reality. An independent garage may or may not use a flat-rate guide, like Chilton's, for estimating, and billing. The problem is, with Chilton's and others, is that each step has it's own rate, independent of whether part of it is also part of another repair being done at the same time; in effect, you are double-charged. Many independents take a midway decision...using flat-rate to determine an estimate, and then, using experience as a guide, shortening (or sometimes lengthening) the time, based on actual time spent. Sorry, but there is no easy, cut-and-dried answer for you.
