Information Helps Members Recruit & Retain Employees

Gainesville, Virginia – October 22, 2019 – The Association of Diesel Specialists (“ADS”) has released the results of the 2019 Compensation Survey. Available exclusively through ADS, this unique, industry specific data provides diesel shop owners and managers with the tools to effectively hire, compensate and retain employees. 

“The Business Management Committee is proud to present the results from the ADS 2019 Compensation Survey,” stated Warren Stewart, chairman of the ADS Committee. “The information in this report is highly specific to the diesel service sector providing members the knowledge to attract and keep employees.”

The report is over 200 pages long and has been assimilated for U.S. and Canadian Service Members to assist them in comparing their own compensation packages with other shops in the same type of business. The data provided does not reflect the compensation structure for any single service organization.

New this year: This report includes results broken out by region to help members better benchmark their company to businesses in their local area. 

Some of the topics covered in this comprehensive report include: salaries by experience level, employee benefits (insurance, holiday pay, family care, etc.), hourly rates and more. 

This valuable member benefit is available for free to those who completed the survey. ADS members may purchase the report for only $35, and non-members may purchase for $250 by visiting

ADS offers a special thanks to its Business Management Committee for leading the effort on this project.
