Patroler (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 6 May 2017
Mostly Ok to work for,. They do not pay very well and even though I excelled at issuing tickets it did not get me extra pay or bonuses of any kind. Started at 11.00 dollars per hour and after repeated requests for an increase they gave me a dollar raise.
Traffic Director (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 1 April 2017
The work is hard but rewarding... Easy but your skin will get tougher and you will be able to do anything you want after. It builds your character and myself, I felt valued and more important than just a store clerk.
Parking Attendant (Former Employee) – Caledon, ON – 27 February 2017
Relaxed environment. Had to learn on the go about what accreditation to look for and how to deal with situations where people did not have required accreditation. Also, I learned how to deal with VIP guests and take care of their needs.
Management Non involved, Shady, and production not rewarded
Lot Attendant temporary (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 19 September 2016
The job itself is easy,and rather stimulating, but the management is not involved,shady,and frowns on you standing out. Throughout my employment I excelled yet was blown off when I asked for further employment which was implied in my contract. The employees who are regulars are extremely inhospitable, rude and snake like. Only work temporary, and get out. Take it as a quick cash grab and bail.
One plus is the Ceo/Higher management is very welcoming, as well as accepting, past that horrible. PS They charge way to much for parking, especially during Stampede.
Honorable with pay.
Bad Management, Untrustworthy Coworkers and Supervisors, Severely Dis organised.
It's a nice place to work....except being replaced by metres
Lot Attendant (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 7 June 2016
I have to admit....If you can get a permanent posting (weekly schedule then stays permanent) then the benefits are excellent (even as a parking attendant) wage isn't too bad either. But now with silly machines taking over; not alot of work outside of summer months (especially for auxiliary staff)
I've put in about 10 years or so, and instead of finally getting a full time (at this point would settle for even part time) permanent posting all I am hearing from my boss is (I don't have additional hours to give out) yeah I know....metres and more metres
So yeah; if you are looking just to fill in some gaps in your week (or in some cases in the month) this job is a good fit for sure. If you need something stable and on going....then I suggest you look elsewhere.
But itherwise; the work is great....very relaxed. Management is pretty good....Co-workers are so so (good luck switching shifts with one who has a morning shift)
But all in all it's a good place......with low hours
not bothered much by supervisors, relaxing, auxiliary staff have flexibility
Great co-workers, competitive salary and supportive managers
Parking Attendant (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 19 November 2015
It depends on which parking lot site, but my experience with the company was great. The only reason I am not working there still consistently is because the job is unionized you may get bumped from your schedule or moved around to another lot.
This wouldn't affect you in a management role and the head office and corporate side of the business is fantastic from my perspective.
The hardest part of the job would be dealing with upset customers, some people can really take it out on you. The most enjoyable is the co-workers and the straight forward shifts.
No overtime, shifts that fit any schedule, Independance
Irate customers, shifts at all times (overnight, early shifts), No overtime
Great people, I'm mean just awesome coworkers, basically your best friends, but there are a number of small things that could be done better such as communications and maybe a better pay, although from what I understand your pay and workplace experience differs from city to city
