A parking lot attendant monitors access and provides basic oversight for a parking garage or surface lot. In some settings, a parking lot attendant may also function as a valet, parking and later retrieving vehicles for customers or employees. Duties can involve accepting payment, checking identification badges, issuing passes, and otherwise ensuring that only authorized visitors or paying customers are using the parking lot. In parking garages where spaces are limited, the attendant may direct drivers to particular spots and may be responsible for updating an online system that shows remaining parking availability and rates. In addition, the position usually requires monitoring the premises by viewing security cameras or by walking around the lot to address loitering, litter, and other issues.
