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

    Pros

    There seemed to always be a sense of high employee moral within the organization. Some of the employees were family so that atmosphere was very dominant and apparent.

    Cons

    There always seemed to be this inherent glass ceiling within the organization and growth potential seemed limited at best. They didn't seem inclined to higher internally and there were a number of communication and service gaps that would haunt them in vital portions of the day.

    Advice to Management

    Try to develop a more empowered employee base due to the limited capacity they you have at your disposal. It will save you from having to stretch your workload.

    Pros

    The job is not that difficult, Good group of fellow employees, you work alone without someone on your back....except for the GPS of course.

    Cons

    You drive your own car to the lots and you are not reimbursed for gas. Limited to work under 25hrs a week. They blame Obama Care for cutting employee hours and not providing benefits, which is total BS. The Employer mandate hasn't even gone into effect and they were providing benefits before. This is just an excuse and a perfect opportunity for a greedy company to rake in more dough for the top.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lie to your employees about why you cut their hours and benefits. There are companies that have way fewer employees than you and make a whole lot less than you but still provide options for their employees....btw I love Obama Care, it saved my life from a serious heart condition. Thank you Obama. 👍

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

    Pros

    They were flexible on my hours and it was easy work.

    Cons

    Sometimes customers would be very angry and I'd need to deal with that.

    Pros

    This job is very easy. You either sit in a booth all day long and collect money or you walk around giving out parking tickets. I am a student and the job is very flexible with my schedule and I am often able to study for class when I work at the booth. The wage is also above minimum wage.

    Cons

    There is NO possibility for advancement. There are about 20 employees at our location. We are managed by two different bosses. One is the regional manager and the other is the manager for our location. Both of these managers were hired from the outside. Several of the employees have been working the same position for 10 years. There are never any promotions, or raises (unless it is an companywide raise to stay competitive). It's a super easy job but you will never get anywhere with it.

    Advice to Management

    This company needs to update it's collection machines. Customers often have to put money into these archaic boxes that are outdated.

    Pros

    Diamond parking is a great entry level job. It is especially satisfying if you like cars and working with people. Great college job.

    Cons

    There is not very much opportunity to move up in the company. You must have and maintain a relatively flawless driving record to be employed. Regular drug screening.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice if there was more interaction with the managers. More frequent employee evaluations would be great as well.

    Pros

    They pay you on time, They are real good about denying any wrong doing.

    Cons

    Never fair treatment, never raises, their HR treats you like you are stupid when you complain. They are a business that treats their employees like garbage unless you put up with their abuse. This business is not about people, but about profit. You are nobody to them.

    Advice to Management

    I would screen your managers a bit more careful. These guys are getting away with abusing the worker's and lying to cover their own tracks when someone complains. This company is not what I had once believed it was. It is pure torture to work for.

    Pros

    At times you are giving opportunities beyond your scope of work, but don't think of asking for a raise. Once in a while you will get lunch.

    Cons

    They must have written Office Space after reviewing this company. From poor people management to ludicrous business decisions, this company has it all. Upper management would take your stapler if they thought it would make them a buck because you don't mean anything to them. There is zero morale in the company and count on your bonuses being reworked often, because they are never put in writing. There is a company "handbook" that outlines general things, like paid days off and uniform requirements, however there are no company procedures. It is all word of mouth, which means they hold all the cards and will terminate you when they deem convenient. I left months ago but I hear it has only gotten worse with the economic issues.

    Advice to Management

    Watch Office Space and take notes. When you manage by fear they will do their jobs only well enough to not get fired. By the way, those are people working for you.

    I worked at Diamond Parking full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very friendly people, team spirit. Very reliable and flexible management, Union is available and growth within the company is also considered.

    Cons

    Layoff can be expected anytime, whenever the management loses a garage. No bonus or any charismas gifts. Good Luck with your choice.

    Advice to Management

    Need to automate all the parking garage ticket dispenser and cash payment system for fast and efficient service. Keep up the good work.
