Don't make your mechanics answer the phone!

Dropping the task at hand to talk to customers at the counter or on the phone, then going back and picking up where I left off is the single biggest time sucker in my situation. The shop I work for has a very "open concept" wrench area, and while it's nice for customers to be able to see what's going on (most of the time), I work about three times faster come 6pm when the doors close.
