    I have been working at Standard Parking part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Really easy place to work at, you basically just take payment for parking as the customers are leaving. You meet a lot of different people it's pretty fun.

    Cons

    Some people park, and although the prices are listed at the entrance some customers are upset at he price to pay when they leave. Customers don't alwAys understand if they have to park or just leave after five for a residential discount, this is because the company isn't very clear on weather you have to leave or park after five pm on the signs they have up

    Former Employee - Cashier in Chicago, IL

    I worked at Standard Parking part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Starting pay was $11. Cashier job is easy.

    Cons

    9 of 10 customers are extremely rude. Customer service on the management end is horrible. Management doesn't care about you or the customer for the most part. When you have any issues, management is more upset that you're bothering them than willing to solve the issue. No real potential for advancement. You're by yourself in a booth for long periods of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care for your employees. Learn to treat them with respect instead of like children. Change your attitude and earn employees respect instead of barking at them all the time.

    I have been working at Standard Parking full-time

    Pros

    With possession of CDL and clean history, it is easy to obtain a driving job. The workforce is very diverse, and there are frequent opportunities to bid on a work schedule to matches one's needs. The current health insurance offered to employees is very good. Upper management is generally very approachable.

    Cons

    There is little to no chance of any meaningful advancement, either in position or pay. For example, 2.5% annual increases in pay occur only after 3 years of employment. When there are issues with pay deductions for health insurance premiums, there is never an adequate resolution between the company and the union. The greatest con is that there is too much petty drama between supervisors and workers. The supervisory culture leans too much toward micromanagement and unnecessary disciplinary actions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer quality training in human relations/management skills to dispatch supervisors. Offer at least a 3% increase in pay to keep up with the annual rate of inflation.

    I worked at Standard Parking full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Worked with some good people, benefits are ok (nothing special)

    Cons

    They still want to do business like they are a small company. But they've grown too large, not enough policies in place. Upper management is a "good old boys" club, women in management will find it very difficult to break through.

    Pros

    our site is very laid back, very comfortable work enviorment, independent work, set schedules, and flexable hours, also you are gaurenteed at least a cost of living raise every year. you get holiday pay which is double time vs time an a half. usually the people who do work here stay for long periods of time, specifically our one employee who has been here for 9 years and its a very warm and family like business. all about satifying the customers and helping them with needs to make their visit pleasurable. its nice to feel like your boss vaules and appreciates you and your work ethic. also our site manager is very will to teach, learn, and help out his employees also our site manager is all about encouraging personal achievements and growth as a person. i have personal hae never had a better job with a better boss. i love my job and our management at our site and co-workers. along with other co-workers they are very welcoming and accepting and eager to teach... everyone is a team player, its like a giant family and couldnt ask for better. plus can be transfered to other sites.

    Cons

    midnights arent the greatest have to work in all weather conditions even extreme, no benefits, no full time status, no room for promotions, no proformance raise. machines go down frequently. our site manager is wonderful and very approachable but district/regional manager never seen or met them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    it would be nice to recieve benefits and have the chance of full time. properly running machinery. proformence raises would be delightful.
