    Pros

    good pay, easy job, some promotional opportunity

    Cons

    It seems that a lot of employee morale is down. There are people from all cultures and they have a real hard time getting along. Most memos aend with "Failure to follow this will result in disciplinary action" instead of a positive note or positive environment. Suggestions are given to senior management, but nothing gets done. If pay is wrong, it takes a long time for it to be resolved. There was a time when W2's weren't sent out on time and it took 2 weeks for an answer.

    Advice to Management

    When you ask for suggestions, act on them.

    Pros

    No managers on your back due to the fact your on a bus majority of the day. Also its a great opportunity to interact with a variety of people from different backgrounds and cultures learning new things every trip. If your ever have the opportunity to become an full-time employee the offer great benefits and depending on your shift sometimes you can receive tips up to 60 dollars of tips on a good day. For the most part the supervisors are laid back as long as you do what you are instructed to, which you can't complain.

    Cons

    Your on a bus all day.

    Pros

    If you are a high school/college student you have plenty of time in between lunch hour and when everyone goes home to study or read. There really is not much supervision, the job is easy to do does not entitle much no former experience is needed.

    Cons

    There are a lot of customer problems so if you work for standard parking you much know how to separate business with personal feelings. The company does not value a students schedule it is not flexible it is set in stone and does not respect its part-time employees. There is also no way to advance within the company my former employee instead of giving me a management position in another location she gave it to her daughter. Instead of another employee with more years and experience.

    Advice to Management

    I advice management to REPLACE all of its booth Attending's with the Electronic Machines. That way the company can save its money without having to pay employee's and managers or area supervisors it would cut the company cost greatly as a former employee I felt I did nothing that a 3rd grader students could not do working as a cashier in a booth in a parking garage.

    Pros

    Great office environment, benefits (the ones provided) are good. Great work/life balance

    Cons

    No tuition benefits, low pay,

    Advice to Management

    Pay is not a good as it should be. Should offer better benefits for non-union employees. i.e. no tuition benefits, lower pay, hard to advance in company. HR not as hopeful as they should be and their response time is horrible on important issues.


  6. It was I good opportunity to learn and work in a different job field then what I was used to.

    Pros

    They give opportunities to all of the public, it doesn't matter if its your first job, or you have a jail record. They will give you a chance to present your self for employment.

    Cons

    The structure of the company changes a lot, and on the fly. The company doesn't have a strong focus on its employees or management staff.

    Advice to Management

    The company would benefit from showing its staff more support, and also showing the management staff that they matter. Make the staff feel more human, and less robotic.


  7. Good internship opportunity, wouldn't go full time.

    Pros

    The downtown location on Michigan Ave. can't be beat. Plenty of activities just an elevator ride away (perfect for lunchtime eats/shopping).

    Cons

    Company culture and workplace environment was OK but didn't really meet my expectations of what a luxury hospitality company would provide to its central office employees.


  8. Good as a short term job.

    Pros

    It's a good place to work at if you need balance between work and school. Depending on the job, hours are relatively flexible.

    Cons

    There's not much opportunity to grow within the company. If you want to grow or advance within the company, it would require you to move to a different location.


  9. Just a job to get through

    Limited opportunity for growth, low wages.

    Pros

    My boss and I got along pretty well, benefits package was okay. Improvements were being made for training.

    Cons

    Low wages, limited opportunities for growth and advancement, especially for front line workers, lead to a rather dismal environment. At an airport location (and probably others) the 24/7 nature of the business is a grind, especially when it's almost impossible to build team spirit with non-work related activities. Staffing was skeletal, with little or no backup. Turnover was high. I spent about half my time hiring and training people, who tended to leave within a year. Equipment investment was low and slow.

    Advice to Management

    Keeping decent front line people is impossible at close to minimum wage. They're driving/running expensive equipment around expensive customer automobiles, handling hundreds of customers and thousands of dollars daily, but still SP is paying them peanuts for their abilities (should they possess any). The ones that stay on the job are generally being babysat by supervisors and managers.

    Cons

    90hrs a week. No management support. Pay was terrible. Not a good working environment. Dirty tactics used to get promotions
