    I worked at Corinthian International Parking Services part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    People you work with can be cool.

    Cons

    Miserable management. The directors at the dealerships they do business with laughed at the our manager. They're ancient relics that need replacement.

    Advice to Management

    Time to change your management

    I worked at Corinthian International Parking Services part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Worked at the malls and it was extremely easy. Just don't crash and be cool with your manager and you can hold your job as long as you want. Minimum wage plus tips, so it would come out from anywhere to $15-25 an hour. If you want low stress work to get you through college this job is perfect, but skills generally don't translate to any career unless you get into management.

    Cons

    A lot of politics. If you aren't cool with management it can get a little dicey, they'll move you around locations. Private party events are boring. Inconsistent upper management. Employee morale is generally low

    Advice to Management

    It is hard to make changes in culture, and occasionally if they want culture to be changed they will threaten. Not the best way to go about it.

    Pros

    Great shift work. Nice being on fixed route... allows getting to know clients on a friendly and professional level.

    Cons

    A little disorganized at the management level. Easily overcome if you can be responsible for your own actions and activities.

    Advice to Management

    Formalize structure, improve record keeping, and be aware that responsible staff sometimes carry the burden for incompetent staffers.

    I have been working at Corinthian International Parking Services part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have been working here for about a year now, overall its been good. As long as you do your own thing and try not to get too involved in the politics of the company. I worked weekends and a couple days during the week. The people i personally worked with were good. A few people were tough but overall it was good.

    Cons

    Higher ups very power driven, dont really care for a person if you are lower on the company pole. The ceo/owner can be a real jerk.

    Advice to Management

    Try not to make the company a politics thing, also should try to give incentives so people actually want to come to work.

    Pros

    Receive tips, flexible for college students.

    Cons

    All of management is horrible. Even the owner Jason has no clue how to run the company, all he cares about is the money coming in, never his employees that are making him the money.

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate your whole business strategy

    I worked at Corinthian International Parking Services part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Good if you need experience. Will literally hire anyone.
    -Generally nice people (coworkers).

    Cons

    -Management is not organized - Always had to scramble last minute to get shifts covered. Management has been people with no experience (same as the people from the company).

    -Supervisors do not lead by example. (I had training once, and my trainer would be drinking redbull, eating sandwiches, and answering the radio calls, all at the same time while driving the shuttle).

    -I didn't like how dirty the buses were. It's not hard to wash the bus inside and out, at least once a month. Found so much trash, and at one point, two of the buses had complaints of ants.

    -No opportunities of moving up.

    - No health insurance or any benefits whatsoever. However, with the new California law, you can accumulate sick-leave. However, full-time shuttle drivers do not receive any benefits.

    -Over time is considered either when you:
    1. work over 80 hours/week.
    2. work over 12 hours/day.

    -There is never a manager or superior in the office early mornings or late nights. The driving shifts begin at 5:00 am and end at midnight, and supervisors and management are only there between 8am - 6 pm. We need to have someone in the office in case of an emergency (which has happened) and also in case customers call (which raised many complaints).

    Advice to Management

    -Learn how to organize your employees. Just because you are new to LAWA standards does not mean that you should treat employees terrible.

    -Learn how to manage your employees. You are not in the job to be your employee's friend, you are there to be their boss. Tell them when they're wrong, punish them for doing illegal things (talking on cellphone while driving, speeding on the freeway, running red lights). It looks terrible on the company.

    -Need to be stern to your employees, you cannot allow them to be a "no show" with no warnings, and still not have any repercussions. You cannot allow employees to "skip" loops during a route just because they are falling behind. There are many complaints from passengers that can easily be solved.

    -Be in the office at all times that the shuttles are operating. Answer the calls from the customers instead of letting them go to voicemail. Customers are always right (Except at this company).

    I worked at Corinthian International Parking Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good temporary job, good clients and companies that Corinthian services with corporate contracts, and some freedom on the job and clients often tip, but that is not fully detailed in pay stubs, so you don't know if you are getting the full amount of tips.

    Cons

    Lots of internal politics, backstabbing by fellow employees for job advancement, which is few and rare the promotions, and more superiors making work schedule harder than it should be when compared to other companies.

    If this company was run based more on Merit of individual work, punctual attendance, and proven track record, then it would probably be a better transportation service. Instead, there is favoritism, and some weeks one will work 1 day out of 7 and other weeks you are tested to see if you could perform at their wish for 6 or 7 days out of 7. No life/work balance due to this way of management and testing.

    Even if you do pass all the tests, often the rewards are not there for the Merit/Hard work you put in, and many leave after a brief time there. The pay is low, definitely lower than other places/their competitors, and it is designed that way to make you work very hard, and they determine at their whim whether you are given work or not.

    No one applies to work to have to play games. People apply to work for just that, to W-O-R-K. Without games, unhappiness, and petty ego trips and manipulation.

    Everyone looks out for themselves here. Not a strong company culture, and even some of their clients often are inconvenienced and that makes the employees' job who deals directly with those clients life harder.

    Advice to Management

    Put in place a Merit-based system and check and balance the overzealous nature of certain individuals who abuse the little power they have over others via scheduling work days and more lucrative drives and runs.

    I have been working at Corinthian International Parking Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you love cars, this is a great opportunity because you can (possibility) drive a wide variety of automobiles (luxury/sports cars).

    Can see lots of interesting homes, venues, winerys and country clubs throughout the bay area. (although they are losing these contracts by the day).

    Cons

    A very watered-down version of high end valet service. Employees are under compensated and it reflects in the service. Management is very difficult to work with. It's very common to not be paid your 'promised' hourly wage for an event. Be prepared to be harassed by the scheduling coordinator and private events director to work outside of your available schedule. Upper management will treat lower level employees as expendable slaves, making for an uncomfortable work environment. There is a VERY high turnover rate, you most likely won't be working with the same people more then once.

    Advice to Management

    Put more effort into your employees well being and compensation and it will reflect in the service.

    Pros

    Good opportunities to make contacts with some of Corinthians' business customers; leave for a new job with benefits and respect. Training was competent but not formal.

    Cons

    Unprofessional work environment with co-workers who create a dysfunctional workplace. Leadership was overworked and worn-out, so they could not do all that was needed to prevent turnover and train employees and make the company great. Unfortunately, the prevailing attitude of management/owner and perception was that employees are not valued. eg. " Your lucky to have a job" No Benefits. Personnel should not be involved in minor matters.

    Advice to Management

    Value employees, attract great people, train employees who struggle or terminate co-workers who hurt the team and culture of company. Provide health/dental benefits to all full-time employees. Listen to employees who bring opportunities, money and friends into the company.
