    I worked at Diamond Parking (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of freedom to improve the business from my job location.

    Cons

    Low and little appreciation because I was a woman. The men were always treated better even though the women ran the place and know the business better and all the details.

    Advice to Management

    Walk into the new millennium.

    I worked at Diamond Parking full-time

    Pros

    Was able to make Joel a lot of money

    Cons

    Too many to list here. Ultimately in working for this company you will be asked to lie and, misrepresent facts to landlords, owners and clients. Upper management has no morals and could care less about any people that work for them. If you work for this company you will get fired. In management you will get fired within 2 to 3 years 60% of the time.

    Advice to Management

    There is no advice to offer because the controlling family is deeply impaired mentally.

    I have been working at Diamond Parking full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great weekday schedule with full time hours and decent pay

    Cons

    - Management takes advantage of you
    - They expect you to work until you drop and get to lots at a certain time sharply and yells at you if you're late to it.
    - Throws you under the bus to city council for city lots
    - Lies, cheats, and brutal
    - Did I mention they abuse you?

    Save yourself the trouble. Don't ever work here. Don't ever apply here. Just don't ever.

    Advice to Management

    Learn some management skills and treat your employees better with what their worth and not how they keep money flowing to your pockets.

    I worked at Diamond Parking full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice middle managers, flexible schedule. Hopefully they have changed since I worked there in 2012.

    Cons

    Horrible upper management. No raises, ever. No benefits. If you are full time, you are let go after a year. I worked there part time for 2 years. For the first 6 months, I didn't have the keys to two of my lock boxes, and even after many attempts to get them, they were never provided. They gave everyone a list of lots to check, with names like A949. No mention about where the lot is, just go out and find it, "We think it might be on Pike St." I would get lost for hours, but nothing was ever said to me about lack of productivity. It seemed like management cared less than I did about how many lots I checked in a day. You drive around in your personal car and there is no reimbursement for mileage. The only people you come into contact with are angry because you just wrote them a ticket. Very lonely, boring job.

    Advice to Management

    Drive route with checker at least once so that they are not hopelessly lost.

    Pros

    A decent paycheck while you are there.

    Cons

    Everything, The people you work with, the NO training, zero forward thinking management team. Back stabbers, love to talk about people behind their backs and thrive on negative situations and breeds negativity. Extreme foul mouths in the office setting no matter is you are with prospective employees or not. The list goes on. HORRIBLE and these people should be ashamed and shut down!

    Advice to Management

    GET A LIFE AND READ A LOT OF SELF HELP BOOKS!

    I worked at Diamond Parking full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great co-workers, great boss. Everyone tried very hard to support an unworkable business model.

    Cons

    C level management is completely clueless on how to get the best work from employees. These think they can squeeze employees to make them get more work done with less hours and fewer resources. For example, they cut everyone in our office to part-time rather than have to provide sick and safe time under Seattle city ordinances, and so they would not have to provide health insurance to those employees.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up! You can't run and effective business when you are failing to meet your employees basic needs.

    I worked at Diamond Parking part-time

    Pros

    I worked during the summer to help save up for school. The job had flexible hours, decent pay, and the managers were welcoming.

    Cons

    Some customers are very nice. However sometimes when a customer catches you writing a citation they can get very upset.
