    Main dealer servicing “technicians”

    Il be totally honest in that I am not surprised this forum has fallen on its **** recently. Every topic, every subject every day is people pulling apart other people’s threads in order for a game of one- upmanship whilst probably filling time at work or filling time between pension collections...

    Main dealer servicing “technicians”

    That’s true. I do wonder what the pay difference is between say the young technicians or apprentices and the Master Techs in their 30’s. Would be interesting to hear from somebody in the main dealer service trade to actually find out what the setup is. In the NHS world it’s now developed into...

    Main dealer servicing “technicians”

    Will I have to ask you, as you are a “Veteran member”, do you exist here just to sit around all day, pontificating, reading through random threads to then reply with an opposing view which then inevitably turns into some sort of personal attack on ones character. You are not the only member...

    Main dealer servicing “technicians”

    This could well be where I was mistaken, they just looked young to me, they could have well been in their mid 20’s with my age blindness. I have always been of the opinion that to truly create a good level of workmanship in any sector/industry that you should have a solid bricks and mortar...

    Well Will, you seem to have plenty of opinions on here. How about you do your usual thing and toddle onto the next thread to pontificate on.

    Thank you. Although I am getting used to upsetting “the establishment” on here recently :)

    Main dealer servicing “technicians”

    Perhaps like the other poster you should re-read my original post instead of skimming through it and getting your noose out ready to hang somebody for “discrimination”! I stated it was an “observation”. Also why the hell would I carry on with dealer servicing after a plan runs out when it is...

    Main dealer servicing “technicians”

    One thought did occur to me today was that there was just no need for the number of staff in a dealership. Ok, so in one showroom of the 3 showroom triple franchise I was greeted by 3 receptionists behind the desk as you come in. All 3 of them were sitting right next to each other, I then tell...

    Main dealer servicing “technicians”

    Having worked on all my previous cars till my first S204 5 years ago (too complicated for me to dabble without STAR) I know what you mean. Makes you wonder what the profit margins on main dealers are like when they charge £140 per hour and the techies are probably on £9 of that. No overheads...

    Well someone had to give the White,middle aged, middle class, entitled contingent a bit of competition at something on here! :)

    Main dealer servicing “technicians”

    I essentially had to go through a mini fraud investigation whilst trying to withdraw £18k for a car a couple of years ago.

    Main dealer servicing “technicians”

    I did chuckle at some people who apparently are fine with young technicians delving into the bowls of a power plant but in the detailing forum they state won’t let a dealer near to wash it. Lols. That being said my dirty motor still has random missed bits of salt all over it post “wash”

    Think you should probably re-read my post again. Hopefully your friends oldest daughter can read and intrepret the tone and context of a sentence better than your good self!

    Just to add there is the possibility that I am age blind and they are a in their 30’s. If they are I want to know their razor brand because I want them!

    Main dealer servicing “technicians”

    Quite possibly this! As I said I am not ageist in practice as the majority of the current workforce I have just employed are between 17/21 and their job is to keep people alive. Pretty sure though that any one of you on here who saw somebody who appeared pre pubescent working on £60k’s worth...

    Main dealer servicing “technicians”

    Currently waiting for my C Class having a large service. Whilst I’m sat here in the waiting room of the main dealer observing work carried out through the transparent glass viewing area I can’t help but notice the average age of the technicians” carrying out the work in the workshop is prob...

    The UK Politics & Brexit Thread

    This thread is getting more ridiculous by the minute. It’s akin to some of the MAGA threads on twitter. I’m tapping out of this one for a couple of years till I can either come back and say “told ya so” or come back and eat my golden hat while my butler is polishing my turds!

    The UK Politics & Brexit Thread

    Forgive me if I’m wrong but Diesel was demonised in Japan in the mid-late 90’s and has died a death in Japan ever since due to being taxed off the road after the first 3 years from registration. (Hence influx of large imported diesels on the grey-market around that time). Seems strange to move...
