Need some help with money...

what do entry level auto mechanics make an hour? i've never worked for a shop before, on the books, i just worked at one for free so that i had unlimited access to the shop(made a pretty decent amount on making exhaust systems for people after hours...shh).

anyway, i'm looking at getting a job as an entry level(is that called a class c?) what should i look to make?

From what i remember, if you work at like Lube it all or something, you make maybe 7bucks an hour. i overheard one of the employee's at the place i'm looking at, say something about 10-16an hour. i didnt want to under pay myself, but i didnt want to ask too much so that they wont hire me.

any suggestions? the manager is going to call me tonight around 6pm and ask me what my salary requirements are. help

Stating a salary requirement isn't always a good idea. Often, it's useful to counter with "What are you in a position to offer that might offset my salary expectations."

Check this site for some ideas.
