I agree 100% with @ok4450
When I was at the dealership, a bunch of these UTI graduates started getting hired. Eventually, only UTI graduates were hired.
These guys showed up, owing a ton of money, and they had to sign a 1 year contract with the dealership.
The UTI recruiters apparently lied to them, and told them they’d be earning 100K . . . Ha ha ha
The only way you’re doing that . . .
High hourly rate
Flag lots of hours every day
Drink lots of Red Bull, 5 hour energy, Mountain Dew, Jolt cola, etc.
Super high efficiency
No warranty work
No goodwill work
Only customer pay work
The dealer always has plenty of work
No customers wasting your time with chit chat
No "problem cars"
No diagnostic challenges
No timekeepers jerking your chain and shortchanging you
I’m sure I left out some stuff . . .
Only if you can answer yes to all of the above, do you have a chance of earning 100K
Many of these guys left soon after their one year obligation was up, because they realized they’d been played for fools
Some of them stuck around . . . these were usually the extremely sharp guys and the really hard workers.
Some of these guys showed up with no skills, but they had a good attitude about it. The willing ones said “Boss, show me how to do it” and/or “Boss, can you explain how this works”
The “dumb” ones just did what they were told and didn’t care about the hows and whys
