    Pros

    Good temporary job, good clients and companies that Corinthian services with corporate contracts, and some freedom on the job and clients often tip, but that is not fully detailed in pay stubs, so you don't know if you are getting the full amount of tips.

    Cons

    Lots of internal politics, backstabbing by fellow employees for job advancement, which is few and rare the promotions, and more superiors making work schedule harder than it should be when compared to other companies. If this company was run based more on Merit of individual work, punctual attendance, and proven track record, then it would probably be a better transportation service. Instead, there is favoritism, and some weeks one will work 1 day out of 7 and other weeks you are tested to see if you could perform at their wish for 6 or 7 days out of 7. No life/work balance due to this way of management and testing. Even if you do pass all the tests, often the rewards are not there for the Merit/Hard work you put in, and many leave after a brief time there. The pay is low, definitely lower than other places/their competitors, and it is designed that way to make you work very hard, and they determine at their whim whether you are given work or not. No one applies to work to have to play games. People apply to work for just that, to W-O-R-K. Without games, unhappiness, and petty ego trips and manipulation. Everyone looks out for themselves here. Not a strong company culture, and even some of their clients often are inconvenienced and that makes the employees' job who deals directly with those clients life harder.

    Advice to Management

    Put in place a Merit-based system and check and balance the overzealous nature of certain individuals who abuse the little power they have over others via scheduling work days and more lucrative drives and runs.

    Pros

    A challenge, working under all weather and parking situations. Parking locations vary in labor requirements, local events for Valet, and other permanent locations for Valet. Long slow hours at times.

    Cons

    No compensation for gas or travel expenses for any associates, traveling to distant Valet locations. No payrate advances whatsoever, no bonuses, or incentives for employees to perform at their best. long hours, and strong co-worker communication skills required.

    Advice to Management

    Possibly better pay rate system that compensates for the expense of living. Some incentives for veteran workers is strongly encouraged. & consideration for the travel time and expense associates are asked to devote & possible compensation.

    Pros

    If you love cars, this is a great opportunity because you can (possibility) drive a wide variety of automobiles (luxury/sports cars). Can see lots of interesting homes, venues, winerys and country clubs throughout the bay area. (although they are losing these contracts by the day).

    Cons

    A very watered-down version of high end valet service. Employees are under compensated and it reflects in the service. Management is very difficult to work with. It's very common to not be paid your 'promised' hourly wage for an event. Be prepared to be harassed by the scheduling coordinator and private events director to work outside of your available schedule. Upper management will treat lower level employees as expendable slaves, making for an uncomfortable work environment. There is a VERY high turnover rate, you most likely won't be working with the same people more then once.

    Advice to Management

    Put more effort into your employees well being and compensation and it will reflect in the service.

    Pros

    Good opportunities to make contacts with some of Corinthians' business customers; leave for a new job with benefits and respect. Training was competent but not formal.

    Cons

    Unprofessional work environment with co-workers who create a dysfunctional workplace. Leadership was overworked and worn-out, so they could not do all that was needed to prevent turnover and train employees and make the company great. Unfortunately, the prevailing attitude of management/owner and perception was that employees are not valued. eg. " Your lucky to have a job" No Benefits. Personnel should not be involved in minor matters.

    Advice to Management

    Value employees, attract great people, train employees who struggle or terminate co-workers who hurt the team and culture of company. Provide health/dental benefits to all full-time employees. Listen to employees who bring opportunities, money and friends into the company.
