    The work is very easy but this is the ultimate dead end job.

    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 Customers often have to put money into these archaic boxes that are outdated.

    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

    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.

    I worked at Diamond Parking

    Pros

    Simple easy work. The work that was required was not difficult nor, challenging. It was a decent summer job. I don't see how people live on that wage.

    Cons

    Not enough hours, worked in some poor conditions, used your own vehicle. The lack of hours was horrible. Asked for more hours, was denied.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of hiring new staff to work this position, try to recruit current employers with extra hours. 20 hours a week is not enough.
