What Should I Pay A Shop Technician?

This handy calculator helps you determine technician pay related to your shop's current production.

Are you paying your technicians correctly?

What you’re paying your technicians plays a critical role in the profitability of your business. Do you find yourself asking:

  • How much can I AFFORD to pay this technician?
  • How much SHOULD I pay this technician?
  • What pay rate can I offer to be COMPETITIVE and PROFITABLE?


Many shops find themselves in a situation where their numbers SHOULD add up and be positive, but in reality, each month is a struggle.

Recognizing the difference between how your business runs ‘on paper’ and comparing it to how it’s actually running is an important step to understanding why. And understanding how your technician’s pay and hours affect these numbers is a great first step.
