    Coworkers were the type that were not always reliable or good at their job.

    Advice to Management

    Give people better training, and hold them to higher expectations.
    Set up formal management system for valet staff.

    Relaxed office atmosphere. Middle management was great to work with.

    I worked at Parking Company of America (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fellow employees are usually easy to get along with. Meeting people from all around the country/world on a regular basis.

    Cons

    Management will throw their own employee under the bus before they would defend them in any situation involving an upset guest. Most people think the increased cost to valet vs. self park means the valet pockets that money, which is not true. Management won't ever let something from years ago fade away. They'll use it against you no matter how long ago something happened.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to suggestions from your employees. Push for better compensation for employees that have been there long term, especially when they work hard for you. Look at more of the positive work and not ONLY the negative, most likely there is a LOT more positive coming out of an employee. Listen to both sides of the story, and not just an upset guest. They might have had a long journey and are just upset to begin with, so there is a grain of salt to be taken with embellishment.
