    I have been working at 717 Parking full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Awesome work environment! Management is always striving to teach and train their employees to be the best in the industry. With dedication and hard work there is great chance for promotion and growth. The company offers bonus incentive programs and PTO.

    Cons

    Working in inclement weather specially living in Florida. Rainy and windy days can be tough to work out in the field and sometimes it is not for everyone. Also late nights are not for everyone either and can be required.

    Former Employee - Valet  in  Ybor City, FL
    Former Employee - Valet in Ybor City, FL

    I worked at 717 Parking part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Sometimes you get to drive expensive cars
    - Most of the valets are really cool guys
    - Sometimes you'll have long periods of downtime

    Cons

    - Management is sketchy and unprofessional
    - Their headquarters in Tampa is so sketchy it makes you feel like you're being scammed
    - Craigslist ad says "Make $10-$15 an hour" even though the company only pays you less than &5/hr
    - Very uncoordinated, sometimes you'll get a "rush" of cars and you only have 2 people, so you end up running nonstop as fast as you can while the street gets blocked. Then by the time your manager gets there to "help" all he does is scorn you for something out of your control.
    - Your pay is 100% dependent on your location, if you work Centro Ybor you'll hardly make any tips and will have to run very far distances. You don't get a choice in which spot they put you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Act more professionally. Some of them are openly racist and show clear favoritism to certain employees because they buy weed from them on the down low. Start drug testing these guys and tell me you don't fire more than half of them.

    If your job is to roll around in your Jaguar and check up on different spots, get out of the car and stop inconveniencing the valets by making them come to your window while they're working.
