All-Star Valet (Current Employee) – Columbus, OH – September 21, 2017
At the Sheraton at Capitol Square, I absolutely love the people I work with and the management is awesome! Hourly pay is not good, and the tips as a valet are inconsistent, so sometimes paying bills is difficult.
Free Lunches (at Sheraton); great coworkers, great managers
Command Center Specialist (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – September 18, 2017
A very fast paced environment from the beginning of the shift to the end.
I have learned to be patient with customers who range from mid-angry and frustrated to extremely rude and aggressive customers.
I learned what happens when a company grows faster than what their technological capabilities can handle. Their systems are totally obsolete and redundant. It is a necessity and what they need is to upgrade their server's capacity/speed and hire more people for the IT department, and get a newer and more efficient dispatch/call center system.
There are garages that hurt our ear drums and by doing this every day for over 8 hrs daily, will permanently harm us and it seems that the company's executives are not aware of this situation. They must be informed and aware of it!
Management is good although the higher ranking executives should come and see the things/issues with what we have to deal every day in order to evaluate the hourly salary. They will see that for all what we do, is a low salary. They should be paying, at least, $15.00 in order for their employees to come to work happier (I have seen a lot of frustration among them) and to have a better quality of life.
The workplace culture is diverse. I like that. Of course there is more amicable people than others, as in every place.
The hardest part of the job is to have practically non existing training when we were already sent to the floor and learn all parking systems. All what I have learned so far has been thanks to the shift management and co-workers.
The most enjoyable part of the job are some ofmore... my co-workers. Some of them make us laugh and as a consequence to have a more pleasant shift.less
Valet Parking (Former Employee) – Fort Lauderdale, FL – September 5, 2017
Days were filled with check-in and out guest. Provided excellent valet parking and assisted with luggage. Met many wonderful and exciting people that stay at the hotel. For the most part all guest were friendly and made my day. Management was not very visible but the co-workers worked well as a team. Staying professional while dealing with rude customer was a challenge but always done with a smile. During my employment received many merits for job well done and was compensated with certificates.
Sp+ is a less then minimum wage job that does not allow for career advancement or knowledge further then whst position you are placed at. I would recommend this job for a college student with parents that support them and need the extra change for gas...
Lane Supervisor (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – August 29, 2017
I would not recommend my worst enemy to work here I'm not sure if they conduct business at all third locations the way they do at the DIA airport but it's just awful. If you are thinking of working here I highly recommend you don't the HR rep loves to tell you one thing before your hired and change it once your there and some of management is probably the worst around. Go somewhere else the stress is not worth it.

Maintenance, Shuttle Driver, and Car Wash (Former Employee) – Akron, OH – August 11, 2017
I met some great people while working here. Most of which I am still in contact with to date. They are always more than happy to help whenever I ask and helped me mature and know what to look for in some situations.
Valet Supervisor and Valet Runner (Current Employee) – Miami, FL – August 8, 2017
I would only recommend this job for a teenager or a college kid . This company pays very little (6$ an hour in FL) and still manages to take the reported tips out of your check . So actually you're making 3-4$ an hour after taxes . In total , it amounts to minimum wage or a little more when tips are accounted for . There is a HUGE favoritism and nepotism problem in this company. If you're well connected , you get the best shifts . If not , you get left behind . I'm a student and I also have another job in the field that I'm studying . Because of this , management has given me the worst shifts .( Early morning shifts with little tips ). You are expected to give maximum flexibility for minimal returns . This job is only good for either a young kid or an older person collecting a Social Security check. I'm going to leave at my first opportunity .
It's an easy job that requires little mental effort .
No benefits, favoritism, bad weather, little pay, terrible corporate culture .
We need some benefits. This is the only thing I don't like about this job. Helping people is fine.No benefits is the problem. The job isn't hard at all. All I'm doing is supervising people and helping people park.
This is a good place to interact with people from all back grounds and master customer service skills.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – July 30, 2017
I learned to only focus on the work and not co-workers and management. A typical day consisted of assisting customers via phone and call boxes in the parking decks. I was also required to communicate with management and the cashiers to assess the fee for the parking.
Customer Service Representative Lead (Current Employee) – Columbus, OH – July 25, 2017
This career was by far my favorite and most respected place of work. I was trained in almost all fields of this job and this company helped push me into the business professional world where I learned how much I enjoy working in a corporate atmosphere.
