imperial parking aka impark has begun a hiring campaign at citifield,flushing,n.y. utilizing the job description "greeter" they are seeking parking attendants who are to be paid a paltry $8.50 per hour. the new hires must greet all customers aka "guests" with a broad smile, warm verbal greeting and if necessary a kiss on their rear end in an attempt to justify the outrageous $18.00 parking fee. additionally, while construction workers who continue to remain employed at the site are dressed in layers of clothing in an attempt to ward off the frigid temps, our impark "greeters" are required to wear the standard uniform,consisting of a short sleeve shirt, kaki pants, baseball cap and a thin windbreaker. all are expected to arrive and man their respective positions approximately four hours prior to game time and remain on duty until all guests have parked their vehicles. needless to say this work environment constitutes a health hazzard. many of the newly hired employees are young adults. however, a fair representation of senior citizens were also observed. additionally, in order to ensure compliance,imperial parking has a select group of "secret shoppers" who will approach the newly hired "greeters" pretending to be customers in order to observe the attitude, appearance,and overall behavior of the newly hired staff. any and all infractions of the standards impark has established will be duly reported.

the work place atmosphere is unhealthy, dangerous,and chaotic.federal government work place standards and regulations are not major concerns of this employer from the northland {canada} it is the responsibility of those on the lowest pay scale to insure that customers who are being overcharged make certain that the guest enjoys the screwing he is getting from impark.

Mr. Greeter - why dont you just check up on us while in some kind of official uniform. When you guys do it like that - pretending to be a shopper it's like you don't trust us and it is bad for morale. Now we don't trust each other. It's bad business. Maybe it works in Polookaville Kentucky, but it doesn't work in NY. Go Met's.

I see you don't like to be checked up on. How else do you think we can see if they are doing a good job. Our customers want good service with a smile. When they get mistreated they have a bad shopping experience. That's bad for business. It's a practice used by most major retail organizations. Get used to it.

Hey man you are right on.

You know what, we saw Mr. Met's locker room. His is bigger than the locker room for the 120 - plus workers every game who are ushers, vendors and security. How about that. I know Mr. Met needs a bigger locker for that huge round head, but he doesn't need a bigger locker room than us.
