    I have been working at Standard Parking part-time (less than a 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

    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.

    Pros

    Standard Parking believes in training and developing their employees to be the best they can be; as people and as workers. Standard Parking would rather promote from within. Standard Parking does have a competitive wage and benefits package.

    Cons

    Like any other company, not every employee is perfect. Individual employees with little motivation and abilities will bring moral down. Management can be slow to address this, hence the companies drive to regularly train and develop the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue on the current path which the company is headed on. Continue to develop and train all employees and promote those that have proven to be competent and worthy.

    Pros

    Easy Work: The job is basically directing cars into a parking lot
    Interacting With Customers: Tailgaters are fun and energized
    Laid back environment: You can talk to other employees and customers while on the job.
    Break length

    Great job if you're looking for a a little extra cash. Supervisors don't breathe down your neck about every detail. If you are a trusted and responsible employee your judgement calls are accepted and not questioned when solving problems.

    Cons

    Supervisors aren't always prepared as they should be. Sometimes they are just as confused as the employees are on really busy days.
    Standing for a long period of time but thats just part of the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training could be better. Let lower employees know what they can do to acquire a higher position. Provide supervisors with more details.

    Pros

    Vacation and holiday pay
    Good health benefits
    Great Staff
    Seems to be run in a proficient way

    Cons

    Company recently acquired Central Parking and the corporate side of the company seems to be stalling while the reorganization process is ongoing. Some area and district managers have redundant responsibilities while other responsibilities are overlooked because it is "the other managers" territory.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue updating policies and cement each positions responsibilities.
