    Your time is not yours

    Managemment (Current Employee)

    ProsA lot of tools and forms to help with the day to day operation

    Stress

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsNone at this time. I was very displeased with the working conditions at Central parking. but maybe the new leadership is different .

    Cons90hrs a week. No management support. Pay was terrible. Not a good working environment. Dirty tactics used to get promotions

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

     

    Limited opportunity for growth, low wages.

    Supervisor (Former Employee) Portland, ME (US)

    ProsMy boss and I got along pretty well, benefits package was okay. Improvements were being made for training.

    ConsLow wages, limited opportunities for growth and advancement, especially for front line workers, lead to a rather dismal environment. At an airport location (and probably others) the 24/7 nature of the business is a grind, especially when it's almost impossible to build team spirit with non-work related activities. Staffing was skeletal, with little or no backup. Turnover was high. I spent about half my time hiring and training people, who tended to leave within a year. Equipment investment was low and slow.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeeping decent front line people is impossible at close to minimum wage. They're driving/running expensive equipment around expensive customer automobiles, handling hundreds of customers and thousands of dollars daily, but still SP is paying them peanuts for their abilities (should they possess any). The ones that stay on the job are generally being babysat by supervisors and managers.

    Good as a short term job.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    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)

    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)

    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)

    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)

    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
