Auto Body Repairers - Wages & Trends

Many auto body repairers' wages are based on an incentive system. Under this system, the employer guarantees auto body repairers a minimum weekly wage. The rest of their wage depends on the amount and type of work, and how fast they complete the work. The more difficult the work and the more work completed, the more the repairers earn.

Helpers and trainees usually are paid 30 to 60 percent of the earnings of skilled auto body repairers.

Auto body repairers who work full time usually receive benefits. Common benefits include paid vacation, sick leave, and health insurance.
