Setting up payroll rules for car wash, tire service and garage

The Control365 service allows you to flexibly customize the payroll rules for different categories of employees. This article will describe possible tuning options with examples, and also give some recommendations for optimal tuning, based on statistical data.

The general payroll scheme for a car wash, tire shop, or auto repair shop usually looks like this:

  • an employee (washer, tire fitter or car mechanic) receives a percentage of the order or services in the order, in the execution of which he took part;
  • an administrator receives a percentage of all orders that he has placed, and sometimes a flat rate for the exit;
  • a manager receives a fixed salary and a bonus depending on the achievement of any indicators.

A more detailed diagram for each category of workers will be described below.

Washer

Usually this category of workers receives a percentage of the value of the work performed. This percentage usually varies from 20% to 30%, and can be calculated from the sum of prices for services both before and after the discount.

Piecework wages of 20% are usually typical for highly loaded enterprises, where the percentage is calculated from the amount of services before the discount, 30% for the less loaded, and where the percentage is taken from the amount after the discount. The system also allows you to set a rule within which the amount for calculating the percentage will be taken after the discount if the discount is less than a certain threshold and before the discount if the discount is greater than this threshold value.

In our opinion, the optimal scheme for motivating washers is 25% of the amount of all work performed after the discount if the discount does not exceed 30%, and from the amount before the discount if the discount is more than 30%.

If an enterprise works around the clock, sometimes it makes sense to set a higher percentage (for example, 30% instead of 25%) at night (from 22:00 to 8:00).

The system allows you to set different interest rates for different washers, but we do not recommend doing this and advise you to have the same rate for all.

Also, the service allows you to set higher rates for various types of services, for example, this is often used for services where high qualifications of workers and experience are required.

If your company provides services for polishing, dry cleaning or applying various protective coatings, we recommend setting an increased interest rate for these services of 40%.

Also, this feature allows you to create services, the percentage of the performer's salary from which is not charged.

Control365 allows you to assign several employees, both for the entire order (in this case, the percentage will be distributed among all employees participating in the order in equal shares), and to assign one or more employees for each service from the order (in this case, the percentage will also be distributed evenly, but only from those services in which the employee took part).

This functionality is especially useful for detailing centers, where an order can include many works with different performers, and the cost of services in the order differs significantly.

Our service allows you to set up a special type of piecework wages for trainees, if the trainee is assigned to one order or service together with the master, this does not affect the master's salary in any way.

Tire and car mechanic

For tire shops and small car services, it is often typical when one person is engaged in both work and ordering.

We recommend setting 40% of the cost of services after the discount if the discount does not exceed 30%, and before the discount if the discount is more than 30%.

Administrator

For this category of employees, a percentage of all orders placed by them is usually used, which varies from 5 to 10%, as well as, sometimes, a flat rate per exit. The percentage can also be set on the amount before and after the discount.

For optimal motivation of administrators, we recommend using 10% of all orders from the amount after the discount. If the company has days when there are no orders or there are very few of them, you can pay a fixed amount (for example, 500 rubles) for an exit, if 10% of all orders is less than a fixed amount and only 10% if more.

Manager

This category of employees is usually set a fixed monthly salary plus a bonus, which the owner of the enterprise determines subjectively, depending on his assessment and reporting indicators.

Time wages

It is worth saying that the system allows you to set a fixed amount that can be paid:

  • everyday:
    • regardless of whether the employee participated in at least one order;
    • only if the employee took part in at least one order.
  • per month, and this amount will be charged proportionally every day of the month, taking into account the number of days in the month.

Piecework wages

Additionally, the system allows you to set a fixed rate for one placed order. This opportunity is sometimes used to motivate cashiers.

We also generalize once again that piecework wages can be calculated as a percentage:

  • from the amount to the discount;
  • from the amount after the discount;
  • from the amount after and before the discount, depending on the amount of the discount.

and also vary:

  • from the time of day;
  • from the service;
  • from an employee.
