How to Be More Productive on Flat Rate as an Automotive Technician


Oh everybody I’m Brian from how to automotive and today I’m making this video on the topic of productivity especially as a flat-rate technician so the tip I got for you guys is to mind your own business and what I mean by that is not get involved with everything in the shop so it was one of the hardest lessons I ever learned was to stay out of everybody’s business in the shop and just focus on the job that you’re working on and just kind of stay in your own little zone and just work work and not pay attention to everybody else’s so what happens is we pay attention to everybody else they start coming to you all the time like instead of them doing the job themselves and trying to figure something else themselves they come to you hey Brian how do you do this hey Brad you have the tool for this hey Brian can you do this can you do that before you know it they’re pulling you away from the work that you’re doing and you’re doing their work for them and not doing your work and so I learned the tip somebody gave me the tip to mind your own business stop in town mayor of the shop and being involved of everything and as soon as I uh I cut that out my productivity went up two or three hours in a week because I can I could spend you know 10 minutes here five minutes there you know actual physical time about an hour or more worth of my time not working on the vehicles that I’m working on and then you know it if you were in flat rate great you know an hour physical hour of time could mean two or three hours of flat rate time so you can imagine by saving an extra hour every week you’re paying one or two hours and that’s you know anywhere for between fifty and a hundred dollars just by minding your own business I’m Brian Essen come out tonight a month I hope this tip is helpful for you guys I like to thank you guys for watching my videos encourage you to subscribe invite get a head over to the how to automotive comm website for more valuable videos like this thank you
