Job Description for Parking Lot Attendant
A parking lot attendant helps facilitate the parking of cars on a commercial lot. He or she may be asked to collect money, either from a booth or at an entrance. The parking lot attendant will typically also be expected to be mindful of all activities within the parking area, to keep watch, and to prevent vehicle theft or break-ins. In some parking operations where space is extremely limited, the attendant also collects keys and is expected to park cars within the lot.Read More...
Much of what a parking lot attendant does is related to handling payment and controlling entering and exiting the parking lot itself. Many commercial lots and garages will have a booth and gates, which can be controlled to allow cars in and out. The attendant works inside the booth, collecting payments and issuing time cards to drivers. In a situation where multiple attendants are working a parking lot, one may work to collect money and issue these cards, while another attendant routinely walks the lot to ensure that cards are displayed and that the vehicles are secured.
In most situations, working as a parking lot attendant is an entry-level position. Education is less than personal responsibility and a diligent work ethic, which are the factors that prospective employers will seek out. Parking lot attendants’ work hours vary by their employers. Some commuter lots may have shift hours from mornings through evenings. Venue lots may have irregular hours that correspond to events. Other lots may require 24-hour supervision, and staffing is done in shifts.
