Years ago when I was working straight commission (50-50) with a guarantee, the owner would pay me if one of his gimme jobs got involved and took a lot of time. Most were for his buddies, who he would sometimes tell to pay the mechanic what he had coming to him in cash. He was the most honest person I've ever worked for. If the shop wasn't busy, I was allowed to rebuild starters, generators and alternators for shelf stock and got paid for that.
