Good as a short term job.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Standard Parking full-time for more than 3 years

ProsIt's a good place to work at if you need balance between work and school. Depending on the job, hours are relatively flexible.

ConsThere's not much opportunity to grow within the company. If you want to grow or advance within the company, it would require you to move to a different location.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Good internship opportunity, wouldn't go full time.

Project Management Intern (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL (US)

I worked at Standard Parking as an intern for less than a year

ProsThe downtown location on Michigan Ave. can't be beat. Plenty of activities just an elevator ride away (perfect for lunchtime eats/shopping).

ConsCompany culture and workplace environment was OK but didn't really meet my expectations of what a luxury hospitality company would provide to its central office employees.

It was I good opportunity to learn and work in a different job field then what I was used to.

Site Manager (Former Employee)
Baltimore, MD (US)

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

ProsThey give opportunities to all of the public, it doesn't matter if its your first job, or you have a jail record. They will give you a chance to present your self for employment.

ConsThe structure of the company changes a lot, and on the fly. The company doesn't have a strong focus on its employees or management staff.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe company would benefit from showing its staff more support, and also showing the management staff that they matter. Make the staff feel more human, and less robotic.

Hourly Employee

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

I have been working at Standard Parking full-time

ProsGreat office environment, benefits (the ones provided) are good. Great work/life balance

ConsNo tuition benefits, low pay,

Advice to Senior ManagementPay is not a good as it should be. Should offer better benefits for non-union employees. i.e. no tuition benefits, lower pay, hard to advance in company. HR not as hopeful as they should be and their response time is horrible on important issues.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

My experience working with Standard Parking was good overall it is a very relaxing easy job that requires no experience.

Parking Garage Attendant (Former Employee)
Fort Worth, TX (US)

I worked at Standard Parking part-time for more than 3 years

ProsIf you are a high school/college student you have plenty of time in between lunch hour and when everyone goes home to study or read. There really is not much supervision, the job is easy to do does not entitle much no former experience is needed.

ConsThere are a lot of customer problems so if you work for standard parking you much know how to separate business with personal feelings. The company does not value a students schedule it is not flexible it is set in stone and does not respect its part-time employees. There is also no way to advance within the company my former employee instead of giving me a management position in another location she gave it to her daughter. Instead of another employee with more years and experience.

Advice to Senior ManagementI advice management to REPLACE all of its booth Attending's with the Electronic Machines. That way the company can save its money without having to pay employee's and managers or area supervisors it would cut the company cost greatly as a former employee I felt I did nothing that a 3rd grader students could not do working as a cashier in a booth in a parking garage.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

It's a job

Shuttle Bus Driver (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA (US)

I have been working at Standard Parking

ProsNo managers on your back due to the fact your on a bus majority of the day. Also its a great opportunity to interact with a variety of people from different backgrounds and cultures learning new things every trip. If your ever have the opportunity to become an full-time employee the offer great benefits and depending on your shift sometimes you can receive tips up to 60 dollars of tips on a good day. For the most part the supervisors are laid back as long as you do what you are instructed to, which you can't complain.

ConsYour on a bus all day.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Good Pay, Easy Job

Cashier (Current Employee)
Denver, CO (US)

I have been working at Standard Parking

Prosgood pay, easy job, some promotional opportunity

ConsIt seems that a lot of employee morale is down. There are people from all cultures and they have a real hard time getting along. Most memos aend with "Failure to follow this will result in disciplinary action" instead of a positive note or positive environment. Suggestions are given to senior management, but nothing gets done. If pay is wrong, it takes a long time for it to be resolved. There was a time when W2's weren't sent out on time and it took 2 weeks for an answer.

Advice to Senior ManagementWhen you ask for suggestions, act on them.
