All service writers everywhere are paid commission. I have absolutely no problem with that whatsoever. On the service writer's behalf, he's not the dude determining labor rate for the dealership, or even how many hours are charged for a particular job. It's the upper management at this particular dealership that decided they were going to charge somehere around 170 per labor hour, and mark up OEM parts above MSRP. If money were no concern, I wouldn't have a problem with it, either. I just happen to want value for the dollars I earn.
