    in the past 2 days I have turned 17.5 hours... of course on monday I turned exactly, 0... When work is there to be done I guess I Can make hours, just wish there was work to be done. I could have turned plenty more today just the one vehicle came in for me.

    Ouch.....there aren't any places around there that have a shop hourly rate where you can get some experience/speed and then go to another shop with flat rate?

    only small shops. I'd rather be at a dealership to get that kind of experience(training offered, good money and benefits when I turn hours, and lots of resources to get things done, aka lots of equipment and supplies). I'd rather get fast and experienced at this job then move to a smaller shop really. Though that could be a mistake, who knows.
