    I have been working at General Motors full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Motivating to diagnose problems that the average tech can't. Enjoy getting paid buy the job, you get paid what you are worth. If you are making decent money, you deserve to be proud. I love GM cars and trucks, I get to repair them everyday.

    Cons

    Labour times (time allotted for pay) is getting ridiculous. One half of an hour for a job that takes one hour or an hour and a half. This creates a lot of extra stress and anxiety, not conducive to doing a good job. The technicians feel a great deal of resentment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A more accurate and reasonable time study needs to be conducted before publishing warranty labour times. Dealers have invested a tremendous amount of money in training for technicians. Warranty labour times are forcing good technicians to work in the aftermarket. As a result, the strong technicians are leaving the dealer and the weak ones have no choice but to stay. I recently have left the dealer for a large aftermarket franchise, some of my customers have followed me because nobody at the dealer can't diagnose electrical problems. What is happening is the tech staying at the dealer are there because they can't survive anywhere else. Is that who you want working on your product.?
