ENTREPRENEURIAL PARKING INNOVATORS

Propark is a parking management company that has been in business since 1984. Beginning with a lone parking lot in Hartford, Connecticut, three best friends acquired a 60-space parking lot, with the aspiration to have fun and make their parking lot the best place to park. The lot, next to Boppers Bar, offered parking and a beer for $6.  

The Propark culture attracts bright and innovative people; each position at Propark is held by the right person for the job. When it comes to the parking industry, we promote from within and recruit the best from outside because we believe strongly in career development, from internships to our Accelerated Leadership Program. In addition, applying human dynamics to standardized training regimens has been the defining core competency of the Propark culture.

Our Parking People understand that delivering a premium parking experience for every customer, every day, requires smart management and field training that is both a science and an art.

"Parking, profit, planet is the new triple bottom line. Demonstrate a green commitment and document the cost benefit," says John Schmid, CEO. 

Propark is a proud member of the National Parking Association, the International Parking Institute, Parksmart, formally known as the Green Parking Council, and the United States Green Building Council.

Work for Propark and become a part of the socially responsible, forward thinking team. We can't wait to have you!

    I worked at Propark America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I thoroughly enjoyed my time here. The management team makes a tough job worth doing, and it was fun at times. I like that there was always some opportunity to move up if you were ready.

    Cons

    It is a hard job. You are outside all the time and you have to work some tough hours, but I knew that when I signed up for the job.

    Advice to Management

    Keep making it fun and providing career paths for your employees. I would have neve left if my family had not had to amke a move.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Propark America (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    15 min phone interview with exiting employee asked to come in for an in-person interview with direct report. Arrived Was very informal, joked around and not too professional. Discussed the business model and what would be expected in this role,
    Emailed them both and never heard back from them, found it rude and unprofessional.
