    I have been working at Ace Parking part-time

    Pros

    Great part/full time job especially for a high school or college student/graduate. The hours are very flexible -you can work almost as much or as little as you want, and you can definitely create great opportunities if you are a good worker.

    Cons

    Valet wouldn't be my top recommendation for any career opportunities, but the company is huge so management or corporate level jobs are always a good option.

    Also the biggest con is the hiring process has almost no filter, meaning many people who get hired are not great performers.

    Advice to Management

    Have a better hiring process for Valet, although I understand it has a high turnover rate, if the company worked to find better candidates there would maybe be less liabilities.

    Good part time job I guess.

    Cons

    The CEO is a straight duche (John).

    Stressful.
    Pay is bad for the daily stress.
    Doesn’t listen to employees complaints.
    Cheap when it comes to their employees.

    I worked there for maybe a few months. Easy work, at times fun. Some people good to work with.

    Not a whole lot of room to grow. Too many chiefs not enough Indians. Everyone there thinks they are the boss. Certain employees like to stab fellow employees in the back.

    Pros

    Great for entry level experience, you’ll get a taste of supervisor duties. You get to meet a different range of clientele, even get to network with a few of them. Opportunity is through the roof.

    Cons

    Turnover ratio is extremely high for any position one claim within 90 days is a automatic termination if you survive the 90 day period you still have a certain number of claim amount

    I worked at Ace Parking part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You get very familiar with your regular customers and the site owner/property owners are usually very friendly. You can make some good friends here.

    Cons

    Hours are not that great. Some customers will make you reevaluate humanity as they can be brutal at times for a parking fee they have to pay. Pay is not that great especially if you are part time. Sometimes the days can be slow and you are left with nothing to do as you wait for people to come and go. You can lose you job easily if you aren't careful with the mystery shoppers. Never let anyone out for free and always account for every ticket.

    Advice to Management

    Give better pay to those who are there for the long run and who take their job seriously. and want to advance.
