Dealers make a fortune from their service depts. $130 / hr. They pay their help $20 max. In an auto dealership the service dept should pay 90 // 95 % of the total operating cost. Whatever they make selling is pretty much profit

My dealer techs make $20 - $27 per hour. However, they work on book hour rate as well. They can earn 10 - 14 hours pay per 8 hours. Dealer rate is $145.
