    I have been working at Towne Park full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    * Low hiring bar (clean DL & drug tests, no felonies)
    * Lots of open positions in key markets (e.g., Baltimore/D.C., Denver(
    * Good team environment
    * Reasonable training
    * Uniforms provided
    * Tips go in your pocket, and can be very good, depending upon shifts
    * Part or full-time available
    * Limited benefits available after 6 months; good benefits after 1 year
    * Extra shifts available for special events and to fill in at other sites if you are willing to ask for them - sometimes with extra hourly pay and/or tip guarantees
    * Overtime pay when working holidays
    * Usually shift differential for overnight shifts
    * Self-directed training for advancement available - but you won't be spoon-fed
    * Plenty of advancement opportunities (supervisor, management)

    Cons

    * New hires get the worst shifts - you must put in your time (could be 6 months+) to get better shifts
    * You may not get full time at first, but after a brief period of showing you can do the job, going to full-time is usually available
    * Hard physical work - you may run 3-7 miles per day

    * Supervisors and Managers can be tough
    * No vacation, holiday or sick days off
    * Zero tolerance for being late or missing a shift, unless you have a doctor's note

    I have been working at Towne Park full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have found that if you seek a position to get you through school making tips, or if you want to persue a more long term career - Towne Park has something to offer for everyone. If you look at what all of the 'parking companies' have to offer - Towne Park is so far ahead of all of the rest, you cannot even make a comparison. Just talk to some of the associates that have come from other parking companies to Towne Park. They will all tell you that Towne Park is the best in the biz!

    Cons

    If you are looking for a high paying entry level position the customer service industry is probably not the best place to look. Towne Park offers very competitive wages and benefits for the industry, but no one is going to significantly increase their earning potential while staying stagnent in their role. With a company like Towne Park, the best way to increase your earning potential is by taking advantage of advancement opportunities - Towne Park has many advancement opportuniites - it is just up to you if you want to answer when opportunity knocks.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time getting to know the entry level associates and understanding their ideas and suggestions - in short - listen. It can be challenging in such a fast paced company that is always growing, but find a way to do it and you will be even futher ahead of the competition!
