    Pros

    So happy I don't work here anymore. All the positive reviews on this website are almost positively written by the managers because nobody else feels this way about the company

    Cons

    Pretty much everything about working for this company sucks. They nickel and dime you, take you tip money, change your schedule and make drive all over the bay area

    Advice to Management

    Be nice to your employees and stop being so greedy

    I worked at C.P.A Valet part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Get paid to drive cars
    Work at some nice locations

    Cons

    Travel distances can be extremely far (often upwards of one hour)
    Zero reimbursement for travel costs
    Very low tip average
    Very low base wage
    Management is extremely dysfunctional
    Treat employees with lack of respect
    Getting scheduled at the glamorous work locations is very rare
    Restaurant locations are awful to work at because parking lots are extremely small
    People you deal with are often very rude or disrespectful
    High stress situations, and IMO the stress-compensation trade off is not equal
    A lot of running/sprinting, and then a lot of sitting around doing nothing

    Advice to Management

    Get it together. This company is the most dysfunctional work environment I have ever been a part of. I haven't talked with one co-worker who has had good things to say about this management. That should speak levels to what is going on internally with this company. I feel as though I would be able to run this company a thousand time better/more efficiently than the current owner and managers, and I'm in college...

    Pros

    you get to park some nice cars and see some cool places, and very easy to get hired. Also there are a lot of young college kids to work with.

    Cons

    A lot of bad venues, poor management, employees are encouraged not to report damage to cars to the owners. The top managers do very little managing or car parking but will show up to your event late and then take a full cut of your tips.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring just anyone, it leads to damaged cars and a less respectable looking company. Also since often times the job requires running to retrieve cars it may be a good idea to hire employees that can run,

    Pros

    Fast and speedy service from polite and responsible individuals.

    Cons

    On cold nights heat warmers for guests and employees would be nice.

    Advice to Management

    C.P.A has produced a wonderful company with friendly staff. The team members you have trained only demonstrate and reflect the professionalism you have brought to the bay area. No advice, but keep up the good work!

    I have been working at C.P.A Valet part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great group of people to work with for the most part. Fun locations and great food sometimes. You get to meet people from all over. Meet celebrities and drive amazing cars. Super flexible hours. If you want to work, you will. How much money you make depends on you.

    Cons

    The downside is some of the other valets. They don't want to pull their weight but for sure want those tips and perks! Your gonna get out of this job what you put in. If your lazy, rude and just don't get it your not going to get put at good locations.
    Sometimes the commute to locations is rough. But carpool, duh.
    There's a downside to ever job.

    Advice to Management

    Try to team up the new valets with some of the good valets so they learn to do things right.
    Some of these guys/girls should only do parking direction or shuttle shifts.

    Pros

    They give you the ability to work when you want to work aka flexible scheduling, ability to make good tips.

    Cons

    They make last minute schedule changes, are very unorganized, have a lack of communication in upper management, make you drive out of your county to work short shifts, and lazy bosses.

    Advice to Management

    communicate more efficiently, RESPECT your employees, organinze events by county, managers on salary should not take tips at shifts
