Valet Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Valet?

Valet in Cincinnati:
"If There Is A Hell On Earth, Its Here."
Pros: The only good thing about the job was the different types of people that came in and the fast paced environment.
Cons: The pay is only $60 per week, and only 10 hours a week. From 9pm till 3am standing in a bar restroom I wouldn't recommend it to anyone ever.
