    I have been working at Standard Parking part-time (less than an 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Continue updating policies and cement each positions responsibilities.

    I worked at Standard Parking

    Pros

    standard parking was a good place to work, respectful fair pay, could be better, but this is true with a lot of places. Uniforms provided, must return or you pay out of pocket, they clean them for you.
    Overall nice place to work , people really nice

    Cons

    Pay could be better, like most places these days, not really any bad things to report maybe a faster track to advancing career position

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    better pay, faster track to advancement of career keep up respect for workers, continue to praise their work a little in the way of appreciation towards workers, goes a long way

    I have been working at Standard Parking

    Pros

    In my opinion the advancement oppurtunity is great. I have had great experinces with upper management and many chances for advancement.

    Cons

    The parking enviorment can be harsh because of the outside elements. Sometimes dealing with the public in this kind of a job can be hard. There is a lot of stereotyping involved (because you work in a parking garage you must be uneducated).

    Another downside of working for Standard Parking is their relocation policy. Even If offered a new position in another state most people will have to decline because they offer no relocation help. This really hurts a company because qualified employees are not able to relocate to where they might be needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My experience with Senior Management has been excellent. Keep up the good work.
