Horrible Job

Marketing Representative (Former Employee)

I worked at Standard Parking full-time for more than a year

Proswe got free parking.... barely. If you do not work at that location you don't get free parking. They will watch you like a hawk and ask why you didn't pay for parking and fire anyone that got you free parking... EVEN THOUGH YOU WORK FOR THE COMPANY!

Conshorrible management, disrespectful managers, and ready to blame. They care more about yelling at you then teaching you. Don't work here

Advice to Senior ManagementWorked here for 8 months... management was horrible! Disrespectful, forgetful, ready to blame, and never taught me anything. They assume you to know everything within in the first 2 weeks without ever teaching you how to do anything. example: go hand out flyers within this area and create a pivot table to determine the growth from the beginning of the project to the end. How would you like me to do that? figure it out....

Everyone around me knew that my manager sucked and didn't train me properly. She yelled at me and asked why I didn't know how to talk to customers on the phone. Maybe if she taught me the "Standard Parking" way I would of known but she rather yell then do that... Thanks for nothing!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Horrible working conditions, very disrespectful

Cdl Driver (Former Employee)
Dallas, TX (US)

I worked at Standard Parking full-time for more than a year

Prosdecent wage and benefits for the most part

Constotally unorganized, no bathroom breaks without being yelled at., shifts changed without you knowing about it, spoken to in a very disrespectful manner. when you talk to the so called Manager she acts like she knows nothing about what it going on there, when she is the one causing all the drama

Advice to Senior ManagementYou need total reorganization in the dfw area

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Not a good place to work

CDL Driver (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX (US)

I have been working at Standard Parking full-time for less than a year

ProsDecent wage per hour...co workers are wonderful people

Cons"Memo board management"...does not handle issues or complaints from employees. Spoken to over the radio in unprofessional manner. Few or no bathroom breaks without getting behind in schedule. Gates always broken, always taking alternate routes, you are not appreciated at all. Drive to office to clock in, then drive to bus lot in your vehicle, then again at lunch break, then drive back to office to clock out...company needs to transport employees. Constant complaints from passengers...what a horrible place to work

Advice to Senior ManagementNothing will change here....over 4000 employees in 4 years

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Either liars or idiots.

Cashier (Current Employee)
Sacramento, CA (US)

I have been working at Standard Parking for more than 10 years

ProsIt's a minimum wage job. Lucky to make$9 after 10years
Rarely hire from within (usually someone with a degree, and no common sense or knowledge of how things actually work in the real world.)
Managers blame

ConsRarely hire from within (usually someone with a degree, and no common sense or knowledge of how things actually work in the real world.)
Manager blames you for not telling him if he forgot to send someone to fix the most vital machine.
Got in trouble for reading a school book
Not allowed to leave the booth.
Central was ok until Standard took over, and fired all the old managers that actually worked.

Not allowed to do anything other than sit, stand, or cleaning the booth which takes about 5 minutes

Advice to Senior ManagementHave some human decency. Maybe a brain too!!!
Have you ever got a customer complaint about me doing homework or reading. No because I put it away and focus on the customer until they leave.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Nightmare. Its time the management employ compitent managers to run its operation

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL (US)

I have been working at Standard Parking

ProsGood medical benefit provided by union 727

ConsProfessional development is not recognize by the company. Any self development by an employee is seen as threat by the front line managers

Advice to Senior ManagementEmploy people who can bring innovations in to the company and also develop a system of recognizing potential in the company instead of the old system of recognizing incompitent loyalist. Parking is a good business especially in the cities and I hope Jim realize this and protect investors interest.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
