Hondo has hit the nail on the head......again.
That is one of the reasons that I won't work for a main dealer.You are judged on how fast you can do a job,not on how well it's done.
Most main dealer mechanics and technicians are paid on a bonus scheme,the quicker you do a job,the more you get paid.I refuse to work like this,and although we all make mistakes from time to time,I'm sure that more mistakes are made when your up against the clock.Of course there are limits on how long something takes to get done,but to pay on the basis of how fast you can work is wrong.It doesn't take into account the fact that the car comes back as a result of you not doing your job properly....
I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
