★ History★

LSC started in a small garage located in Blaine County in 1987. Since then, Los Santos Customs has managed to expand and work its way into the heart of Los Santos. LSC had and will always have the best reputation for reliable car services. Our commitment to helping customers realize their vision for their vehicles in a convenient, friendly, and knowledgeable manner remains our strongest selling point moving forward.

★ Recruitment★

In order to apply to become a mechanic at the LSC, applicants must pass the recruitment process. The first step is to submit an application via email (Google Forms) and then pass an interview with a member of our management department. The format for the application can be found under the Application section of our website (Forums) or by using the following link: https://forum.eclipse-rp.net/forum/32-recruitment-applications/ 
Mechanics should communicate this to any applicants who appear to meet our requirements of residency and non-criminal background.

★ Goals and Guidelines★

The Mechanic Service is entrusted by the City of Los Santos to keep the streets clean of abandoned vehicles and to provide fast, reliable, and professional service to all citizens of Los Santos. Any organization can contact us for service contracts for necessary car maintenance. As our price sheets indicate, towing for law enforcement purposes is done for free, while services rendered to individuals will come at some labor cost.

★ Ranks Explanation★

★ Chain of Command★

The list below is the official chain of command (CoC) at LSC. This is where you can find who you should raise concerns with depending on your current status within the company. It is expected that you do not jump to the top of the CoC but rather progress your concerns through it in order to alleviate workload and stress on the high command. Mechanic trainees through to Mechanics should raise their concerns with team-leaders then the CoC continues per rank.

★ High Command★

High Command is responsible for all major policy changes, handbook changes, and enforcing rules and duties upon the management team. The high command should only be reached for issues if it relates to things that management is not capable of fixing. They are also responsible for making sure that management follows proper logging guidelines for promotions, demotions, and dismissals. High Command is the only 3 ranks that are able to approve the dismissal of an employee.

★ Managers★

★ Vehicles★

Tow-truck (Small)
Utility Truck (Small)


★ Important Tips as a Mechanic★

  • Diagnose: the vehicle and the problem or ask the driver what is wrong.

  • Check the price: list exactly what it will cost for the customer and tell him what he needs to pay.

  • Negotiating: You may give a lower price than listed, but not more.

  • Repairs & Modifications: must be done inside of the Garage. A mechanic must drive the car inside, not the customer.

  • Road Etiquette: Tandem tow patrols are allowed by Lead Mechanics Or Higher. In the event of a mech request only requiring roadside assistance without a tow), then use the Utility Truck.

  • Excessive “paycheck farming” will be punished. Employees are not allowed to stay at the workshop and ignore other mechanic events (like regular vehicle repair or mechanic request).

★ LOA Request★

Any absence of three (2) days or greater requires a Leave-of-Absence (LOA) Requested from a manager (the LOA form on the Forums will only be filled out if a LOA has been accepted). Any non-accepted LOA’s will be deleted. Once submitted, it will only be considered valid after HR or High Command has been made aware and approved it. LOA Requests may be subject to further inquiry and review before approval. All LOA’s need to be requested 7 days prior to the first day of inactivity, failure to do so will result in a strike against you. Some situations may be accepted for LOA’s requested shorter than 7 days (upon approval of Management).
Use the following link to fill in a LOA Request: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1Eqs6anmDUtqAOO0lqUwalcrBT7pSGOsfx-Py-OAJzrI/edit#responses

★ Resignations★

Employees are expected to give as much notice as possible in their resignations. Obviously, sometimes events and life changes come up which entirely disable your access to ECRP; in these cases, notice is not always possible. However, if you will be continuing to play on ECRP, giving significant notice to management, as appropriate, is expected; this notice should be placed in the #resignations channel. Failure to do so could injure LSC’s ability to give a positive job referral for your future endeavors.

★ Criminal Records and Employment★

Applicants may not have been charged with a Felony within the last 1 year ((3 months OOC)) and felons will be placed on disciplinary probation for their time at LSC. Current employees will be dismissed if charged with a felony by LSPD. ((OOC punishments, disbursed by the Admin team, may also be cause for dismissal as they impede our RP standards))

★ Strikes System★

LSC uses a modified “three-strike” system for adding customers to the Banned list ((accessible in the #banned Discord channel)). Minor offenses (such as damaging vehicles deliberately or uncouth behavior) will add 1 point to the offender’s tally; one point earns them a temporary ((12 hrs OOC)) ban from premises and services. The second ban is longer ((24 hrs OOC)), with the third being permanent, until further notice is given. Serious offenses (violent acts against employees, or actions which inflict bodily harm unnecessarily on customers) will lead immediately to a third-tier ban.

★ Parking Regulation★

Employees are not to park anywhere but in the designated employee parking upstairs, and the display area on the ground level. Over-night parking is not allowed and parking while off-duty in employee parking is not allowed. (check our rulebook)

Employee Parking:
Customer Parking:
Garage/High Command Parking
(Co-Owner changed to Managers)
