Auto Service Manager's Salary


Auto service managers plan operations in an auto shop, reconcile revenues, inspect vehicles for problems, make repairs, supervise technicians and inventory gasoline. The salary for this position depends on the type of shop and region of the country where you work. However, an auto service manager generally earns just above $40,000 a year.

Salaries Across the Nation

  • According to Simply Hired in 2014, the average national salary for an auto service manager was $43,000. California salaries were much higher at $52,000 and New York weighed in at $53,000. Texas auto service managers made less than the national average at $42,000, and Kansas salaries were even lower at $41,000. Salaries were compiled from job vacancies posted on the Simply Hired site. Other sites also provide salary data based on the same criteria. Career Builder, for example, stated that in 2014 auto service managers made on average $49,554 nationwide based on vacancies in that year. Salary data often changes with job vacancy data. Most companies desire at a minimum a few years of experience as a technician and one year of experience in management before hire.

Government Data

  • The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics doesn't provide data for auto service managers, but does for mechanics. This can be useful information for entering the industry. Many mechanics get an associate degree or complete a vocational course then attend on-the-job training lasting up to seven years. In 2012, the salary ranged from $20,810 to $60,070 with the median of $36,610. Demand for mechanics should grow 9 percent between 2012 and 2022.
