    Internally flawed organization

    I have been working at Diamond Parking full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    There seemed to always be a sense of high employee moral within the organization. Some of the employees were family so that atmosphere was very dominant and apparent.

    Cons

    There always seemed to be this inherent glass ceiling within the organization and growth potential seemed limited at best. They didn't seem inclined to higher internally and there were a number of communication and service gaps that would haunt them in vital portions of the day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to develop a more empowered employee base due to the limited capacity they you have at your disposal. It will save you from having to stretch your workload.

    Pros

    Autonomy
    Nice fellow employees to work with

    Cons

    Upper management sits in ivory tower unaware of reality in the field. Management by intimidation.
    Zero training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out and look at your business. Especially look at managers in Eastside operations- they manipulate numbers to keep locations open to preserve bonuses. Regional Manager of area hides and never is around nor has a clue of what he is doing. Many locations are poorly run.

    No hours and you drive your own car and use your own gas.

    I have been working at Diamond Parking part-time

    Pros

    The job is not that difficult, Good group of fellow employees, you work alone without someone on your back....except for the GPS of course.

    Cons

    You drive your own car to the lots and you are not reimbursed for gas. Limited to work under 25hrs a week. They blame Obama Care for cutting employee hours and not providing benefits, which is total BS. The Employer mandate hasn't even gone into effect and they were providing benefits before. This is just an excuse and a perfect opportunity for a greedy company to rake in more dough for the top.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't lie to your employees about why you cut their hours and benefits. There are companies that have way fewer employees than you and make a whole lot less than you but still provide options for their employees....btw I love Obama Care, it saved my life from a serious heart condition. Thank you Obama. ��

    I have been working at Diamond Parking

    Pros

    This job is very easy. You either sit in a booth all day long and collect money or you walk around giving out parking tickets. I am a student and the job is very flexible with my schedule and I am often able to study for class when I work at the booth. The wage is also above minimum wage.

    Cons

    There is NO possibility for advancement. There are about 20 employees at our location. We are managed by two different bosses. One is the regional manager and the other is the manager for our location. Both of these managers were hired from the outside. Several of the employees have been working the same position for 10 years. There are never any promotions, or raises (unless it is an companywide raise to stay competitive). It's a super easy job but you will never get anywhere with it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company needs to update it's collection machines. Customers often have to put money into these archaic boxes that are outdated.

    Pros

    Diamond parking is a great entry level job. It is especially satisfying if you like cars and working with people. Great college job.

    Cons

    There is not very much opportunity to move up in the company. You must have and maintain a relatively flawless driving record to be employed. Regular drug screening.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be nice if there was more interaction with the managers. More frequent employee evaluations would be great as well.
