Stray cats walking through the service bay during an interview?
Ever feel like no matter how many offers you throw out there, top technicians just aren't biting? You're not alone. Many shop owners face this frustration, but the solution might be simpler than you think. We worked with a shop that had over 80 applications for a technician position, yet not a single one panned out. The owner had a laundry list of reasons why each candidate wasn’t a fit. Out of sheer curiosity (and frankly desperation), I reached out to some of these applicants. Their feedback was eye-opening. One technician's experience stood out: a shop in disarray, distracted management, even stray cats roaming the service bays. It was a clear sign - the problem wasn't the candidates; it was the shop itself. 💡 The Better Sandwich Approach: Business investor and consultant Alex Hormozi's concept of “Making a Better Sandwich” is a game changer. The title comes from an example he gives about a restaurant that serves mediocre sandwiches and then spends tons of money on marketing to get new customers. He argues that instead of pouring more resources into attracting new customers (or in this case, technicians), focus on improving what you already have. If the restaurant would focus their attention on making better food, past customers would become repeat customers and they would tell their friends. Marketing problem solved! For shop owners, this means: -Tidy Up: Ensure your shop is clean, well-lit, organized, and professional. -Conduct Distraction-Free Interviews: Give candidates your undivided attention. Make them feel valued from the get-go. -Build a Stellar Reputation: Aim for 5-star reviews. Show potential hires that you're not just a shop, but a top-tier workplace. -Make Sure Your Offer is Competitive: Top notch talent knows what they are worth. Do your homework and prepare a fair offer. By focusing inward and enhancing your shop's environment and reputation, you naturally attract better talent. Your current employees become your ambassadors, bringing in referrals and boosting your shop's profile.
