Pros: easy to get hired.
Cons: no health care.
A typical day at work starts around 2:00 PM and goes until 10:30 PM, but there are several other shifts depending on where they place you.
Upon clocking in I would greet all of my co-workers and we will talk about the day prior, and what to expect for the current shift. We might also ask each other how our weekend was, etc. One thing about working for a large corporation is that there is a culture, and a community to share life events with.
2 o'clock is generally a slow hour, but the pace can pick up at any moment. So you have to be ready! Most people arrive at the hotel from the hours of 3 PM until 6 PM. From 6 PM till about 8:30 PM is go-time. That's when everybody is getting ready to go out for the night, head off to dinner, and go explore the beautiful Gaslamp of San Diego.
Depending on what my role is for the day, I might be running to fetch cars, issuing tickets, or performing the captain roll by scanning in and scanning out tickets, counting money, and greeting guests with general questions and answers.
Most of the management seems to be skilled in their profession, diverse in culture, and bring several positive attributes to the team.
Co-workers range anywhere from young and up incoming professionals in their early 20s, to men and women in their late 40s and even 50s. All from diverse backgrounds and different walks of life.
There is nothing really hard about this job. Fortunately, there are only a few responsibilities for a valet. Your main objective is to issue a ticket, park a car, and greet guests with superior customer service. This comes easy to me.
I think that the most enjoyable part about this position is the freedom within the company. An example would be: the ability of the management to give you requested time off, and flexibility with your schedule.
