I have been working at Towne Park part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Most flexible schedule of any employer. Pick up shifts or get time off is never a problem. Tips can be very good depending on the contract property. Ability to grow in the company.

Cons

$3.00/hr starting out at most properties. Huge ladder gap between manager and GSA's. Managers don't genuinely care about hotel patrons or lower staff. Managers create and change new rules seemingly every week. If you take a week or two off, expect the rules/procedures to be different when you return. Tips are generally quite low. I've been fortunate enough to work at a luxury property where tips can range from $10-30/hr on top of the hourly. The overall average at my property comes to about $14/hr. Most properties have to make-up tips for the employees to clear minimum wage.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consider employee and patron opinions directly. Communicate full intent clearly. TRANSPARENCY!

    the uniforms at the hotel sites are awful, pay system is messed up entirely too much. Employees are put on prepaid card programs when they sign up for direct deposit. Tax forms are also entered wrong.

    I worked at Towne Park part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very flexible hours. Good tips but is highly contingent on what location you work at. You will deal with different types of vehicles and customers on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Very hard to move up within the company. Most people in management are cutthroat and willing do to whatever it takes to keep people they are threatened by out of management. It's really only a good job if you are in college and just looking to make some cash part time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better structure on how your contract managers are hired and retained. Also you need to pay your valets more to offset the lack of tips at many of your locations.
