A typical day at work provided entertainment from various customers coming through to the sites. I learned to interact with and please thousands of patrons on a daily basis. The hardest part of the job was fulfilling everyone's needs as the rules and regulations were sometimes too rigid for the customers' liking. Most enjoyable part of the job was being outside in beautiful weather day in and day out. Co- workers learned to work well with one another and develop amicable relations as we spent a great deal of time together. A small hierarchal structure to each site helped establish an efficient work machine.
Pro Park Beach Seasonal Parking lot Employee (Former Employee) – Westerly, RI – October 17, 2015
I loved working for pro park, hope to continue working for them in the future ! Very nice employees ! A typical day at pro park would be getting up at 7 o clock am going to the beach and saying hi to friendly faces i would see every day. The hardest part about the job was staying hydrated walking around the parking lot at the beach for 9 hours on the long days , but if we had short days most kids would get cut early ! My co workers were awesome and just a delight to work with !
Traffic Director (Current Employee) – Oakland Ca – October 15, 2015
They schedule you two hours before the event so you scramble to get out to your spot, so a complete shift isn't even 6 hours. You get extreme abuse from customers, they treat you as if you are less than human. Management is childish and petty, love to call people out on the radio channel to make them look bad, pay you minimum wage, and hire literally anybody. While I was doing my tax paperwork, the other people who were coming in for their interviews came in sagging, hoodies in covering their heads, even gang affiliated attire, wreaking of marijuana and still got hired. While you're out there working, you look around and all the people you work with are tweakers, high on the clock even driving golf carts around the property while high.
Valet Attendant (Former Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – September 27, 2015
Company focuses on customer and client satisfaction above all else, and most of the corporate management are genuinely good people. Local management, however, is hit-or-miss. Unfortunately, the company will rarely side with employees and has a number of lackluster account managers. There is an unnecessarily high turnover rate throughout the company's accounts, nationwide; and very little chance of promotion. Any training for employees is almost non-existent, even for supervisors.
Jacksonville's location is volatile with a particularly unreasonable valet manager, having replaced the entire valet staff in less than six months.
Flexible hours, decent pay, service-driven
high employee turnover, little training, understaffing
Tough workplace with low wages and no breaks or lunches
Cashier (Former Employee) – San leandro, Ca – June 17, 2015
This was my first job and I had both negative and positive experiences. My day consisted of standing in a parking lot (O.co Coliseum) for 8-10 hours as a parking lot cashier. My job was to collect the parking fee and provide the customer with a receipt. The hardest part was trying to get everyone in a quick and efficient manner.
experienced pressured situations, learned how to deal with angry customers, gaines customer service experience
I can say Propark America is an Okay place to work. It is very similar with the other Transportation companies, but managements are willing to work around the schedule. flexible. As the other Transportation companies at Propark the communication is a little bit better. Communication can improve!
Valet (Former Employee) – San Leandro, CA – July 17, 2014
- Parking cars like usual. - I've learned that the customers are always right. - The management was up to date about what event will be hosting at which location and when it will be busy. - Co-workers were just simply amazing. - Hardest part of the job are when it's holiday vacations, because it'll be busy the entire day. - The most enjoyable part of the job is greeting customers to put a smile on their face and assisting them with anything.

if you looking for a place to make a decent living this is not the job for you. good for rextra money in the pocket especially teens. fun and easy to direct traffic at the events at the stadium. coworkers are fun amd management is easy to deal with.
Valet Supervisor (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – May 11, 2014
I start at the booth. I clock in, go directly to the safe to get all the paperwork from the night before. I Count the money, do the paperwork and take it over to the garage. Then I have to go to the safe in the garage, put the paperwork up, get my keys, etc., then I take care of the ticket spitter. Then I have to change the ending and starting date for the ticket spitter and pull 4 tickets. I then get keys for the pay station, go to the pay station and close it out. I take the money from the pay station, the 4 tickets, and paperwork and put it in the safe. I begin cleaning the garage until we are ready for the valet at 6:00am. I greet the customers, make sure to document the tickets and get the booth ready for the day's work. I take care of our clients for the rest of the day, along with making sure that 6 valet and 2 shuttle drivers do their job.
i enjoy the customers - they're all very nice.
stressful - sometimes too many things going on at the same time.
Account Manager (Current Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – January 23, 2014
Although my fellow co-workers at Propark America have been some of the nicest people to work with; the lack of professionalism and competence has forced me to seek employment else where. The hardest part about my job is depending on the management team to communicate even the most basic tasks. One of the most important things I have learned since joining the Propark team is how to protect myself from an employer that is trying to take advantage of the current economic situation.
