hello and welcome to how to automotive today I got a productivity tip for you guys this is goes for the the apprentice in the shop and also the the senior text that I want to make some more money so I got a tip for both of you guys the tip number one is for the the rookie in the shop or the loop tech the low man on the totem pole however you want to put it so my tip for you is to learn how to inspect vehicles inside and out and sell work and if you can sell work and sell work for the senior guys in the shop that will keep them busy and they’ll eventually have an overflow and then the overflow will go to you you’ll you’ll be able to do that overflow work because there’s use you’ve sold so much work that’s impossible to that for the techs in the shop to do all that work so that that means you have to step up and and learn and get that opportunity that’s how you’re going to get your opportunity to do those other jobs that you’re getting passed over on is by selling so much work that they can’t possibly do it all then that opens the door for you to do that work so that’s my tip for you guys now my tip for you senior technicians is to not treat the the low man on the totem pole the loop tech or what everyone call him not to treat him like like like dirt man really treat him like a an opportunity for you guys to invest in train into and mold into a way where he becomes a money-making machine for you guys so the tip for you guys is to mold him and train him how to inspected vehicles how to get that overflow work because you know and I know that if we’re sitting there checking cars check check check check check check all day long and we’re not actually putting your riches on the car you know it gets frustrating you get it seems like you’re just working you’re spinning your wheels and nothing’s being done well if you train that Lou tech guy to do some of those inspections to do some of those jobs that you don’t like to do when those jobs sell they come straight to you without you having to check every single little thing you may have to double check the work or the recommendations but to double check something versus check something completely out is it’s pretty simple is it’s going to save you a lot of time so one of the easiest and greatest ways to make money in the shop as you may know is service work so if you can train you’re certain your service loop tech to sell that service work for look look for those 60 K 9 TK 100 K 161 50s those tiny about services all that stuff he can keep an eye out for that stuff and recommend that stuff as they come in the loop tech could keep you so busy that you don’t know what to do or how to keep up with all the work and that’s the best problem you could possibly have as where you can’t keep up with physically keep up with the demand or the work that’s the best problem the whole shop could have because that means you guys are doing your jobs right that means you’re inspecting those vehicles right that means that you’re finding that work and you’re you’re stepping up for your customer and so work together with the loop tank and the in the loop Tech’s work together with the senior Tech’s and together you’ll grow your shop your grow your value you grow your paychecks you’ll grow everything so that’s my tip for both of you guys I’m Brian Nelson from how to automotive I like to thank you guys for watching encourage you to subscribe invite you to head over to the how to automotive comm website for more valuable videos like this thank you again for watching
