Sent my work 2015 MacBook away for battery replacement, went on a 2 week vacation, came back to the same battery. Repair shop didn't have time to deal with it.

Welcome to Fire City, population: me.

@antolius regular MacBook or MacBook Pro?
If it's a Pro, you might also want to check if its battery is part of the recall programme due to overheating issues: support.apple.com/15-inch-macb

I looked at the guides, and looks like the process is a lot more involved than for my 2009 model... ifixit.com/Guide/Retina+MacBoo

IMHO should be one of the most accessible tasks, but it's not surprising that many companies, Apple especially, is making it harder rather than easier...

@FiXato it is the pro model, and I have received fire hazard warning from Apple. That's what's got me trying to replace the battery. But it's a company machine, and so it has to go to Apple certified service they usually deal with. And I guess the service is overload with work, so they have a long waiting list. So I'm kind of stuck waiting for them.
