    Pros

    The people are helpful, smart, and fun. Standard Parking provides a respectful and comfortable environment. Coworkers work with each other, not against each other. For the most part, this is the mentality of the entire firm, with very few exceptions.

    Cons

    The compensation and benefits are not as competitive as many other firms. Money and benefits are not everything, but a strong emphasis must be placed on the overall compensation package. In this aspect, Standard Parking falls behind, but not far behind, other firms.

    Advice to Management

    I believe Standard Parking is a good place to work, and the company treats its employees fairly. My advice would be to continue to preserve the respectful and friendly environment the company already offers, but consider becoming more competitive when it comes to the compensation.

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

    Pros

    Vacation and holiday pay
    Good health benefits
    Great Staff
    Seems to be run in a proficient way

    Cons

    Company recently acquired Central Parking and the corporate side of the company seems to be stalling while the reorganization process is ongoing. Some area and district managers have redundant responsibilities while other responsibilities are overlooked because it is "the other managers" territory.

    Advice to Management

    Continue updating policies and cement each positions responsibilities.

    I have been working at Standard Parking part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Easy Work: The job is basically directing cars into a parking lot
    Interacting With Customers: Tailgaters are fun and energized
    Laid back environment: You can talk to other employees and customers while on the job.
    Break length

    Great job if you're looking for a a little extra cash. Supervisors don't breathe down your neck about every detail. If you are a trusted and responsible employee your judgement calls are accepted and not questioned when solving problems.

    Cons

    Supervisors aren't always prepared as they should be. Sometimes they are just as confused as the employees are on really busy days.
    Standing for a long period of time but thats just part of the job.

    Advice to Management

    Training could be better. Let lower employees know what they can do to acquire a higher position. Provide supervisors with more details.

    I have been working at Standard Parking full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Standard Parking believes in training and developing their employees to be the best they can be; as people and as workers. Standard Parking would rather promote from within. Standard Parking does have a competitive wage and benefits package.

    Cons

    Like any other company, not every employee is perfect. Individual employees with little motivation and abilities will bring moral down. Management can be slow to address this, hence the companies drive to regularly train and develop the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Continue on the current path which the company is headed on. Continue to develop and train all employees and promote those that have proven to be competent and worthy.
