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 Customers often have to put money into these archaic boxes that are outdated.

    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.

    Pros

    At times you are giving opportunities beyond your scope of work, but don't think of asking for a raise. Once in a while you will get lunch.

    Cons

    They must have written Office Space after reviewing this company. From poor people management to ludicrous business decisions, this company has it all. Upper management would take your stapler if they thought it would make them a buck because you don't mean anything to them. There is zero morale in the company and count on your bonuses being reworked often, because they are never put in writing. There is a company "handbook" that outlines general things, like paid days off and uniform requirements, however there are no company procedures. It is all word of mouth, which means they hold all the cards and will terminate you when they deem convenient. I left months ago but I hear it has only gotten worse with the economic issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Watch Office Space and take notes. When you manage by fear they will do their jobs only well enough to not get fired. By the way, those are people working for you.

    This company is all about downsides.... No job security at all and more importantly is that you work for bunch of stupid decision makers and stupid senior vice president in seattle

    Pros

    Never a dull moment for all levels of work. Most of the employees want people to be successful. Wide variety of work is available from POS to contract negotiations.

    Cons

    First mistake may be your last unless you can shift the blame to someone else. Protectionism is the name of the game if you want to stay. Predatory business in the guise of a service provider.

    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.
