    Current Employee - Valet/Greeter in Dallas, TX
    Current Employee - Valet/Greeter in Dallas, TX
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    -Base pay is decent, but taxes and deductions eat it up quickly.

    -Good benefits, Incentives.

    -Often busy pace, There is always something to do.

    Cons

    -The hours and general scheduling if left alone can leave a lot to be desired, Often chewing up your whole day.

    -Promotion is seemingly possible, but unfortunately with as many deciding factors as there are in the automobile service, and sales industry, it is very easy to slip up and have that be the cause of getting passed over for a promotion or bonus.

    -The constant feeling of micromanagement is felt in just about everything that one as a Valet does. (The Greeters tell Valet's what to do, The Asst. Lead Valet tells Valet's what to do. The Lead Valet tells Valet's what to do, The Asst. Service Managers, or Service Advisors usually don't get involved, but their higher-ups, Service Managers will step in and tell Valet's what to do. Even the Service Director, and up on higher will tell Valet's what to do. )

     In short, there is almost as many management figures as there are Valet's, And at times it can be very disconcerting, and even irritating to go take care of a task and have 5 different levels of management ask/tell you about it.

    -The Asst. Service Managers at times can be lackadaisical in their response to a waiting client on the service drive.

    -As with any environment where there are many in the same position, there is the usual element of competitive smearing (Someone in your same position making you look bad in front of management or fellow peers), and gossip. Word gets to management quickly over any little quibble.

    Advice to Management

    -Allow one to take ownership over their work and perfect it.
    -Make promotion an even more attractive and attainable incentive, not just a carrot on a stick in front of the proverbial donkey.
