- Once approved: Set Availability
a. *If you can’t work a particular day make yourself unavailable the whole day verses say 8am – 11pm because it greys the block out on our screen and makes it more obvious for the schedulers
- Get used to ‘Request Time off’ feature along with your availability. Make
sure both remain accurate.

Geo-Sensored Clock Ins Management:
Valets are given the tools needed to succeed including this geo-sensored clock in mechanism in order to bill for labor hours, this software tracks them and is geo sensored as well.
As contractors, it’s imperative to keep accurate count of hours worked to ensure client satisfaction and avoid any penalties. When you arrive to an account, locate the ticket stack and then clock in with the starting ticket number in the clock in notes. Any questions feel free to access the valet network slack channels for the account you are currently at for aid or assistance from other valets.
- Make sure proper notifications are set and you get alerts on your phone when scheduled – NOT GETTING ALERTS IS NOT AN EXCUSE, SET THEM UP SO YOU RECEIVE THEM if you miss important communications, don’t expect to keep getting work.
- Acknowledge shifts, if you can’t work the shift, notify slack channel of account and drop shift, also, tag the account manager. Communication is always key, and it works better in open channels with more of an audience rather than 1 on 1 dialogue.
- Within 24 hours of a shift we are required to produce a cover or risk a $50 fine.
“Great job, keep it up!”
USE (FIRST NAME.LAST NAME) FORMAT
Slack is our communication software, download the app and you need this link to find ODV.
Take a moment to recognize how speaking in a specific chat room with an audience of 30+ is a far more superior and effective communication mechanism then text messages, dms and phone calls. Our challenge for GSEAT is staying on the same page and this is a tool that helps us as an organization. Please use team channels for any valet-related, account-related conversation, so that we can all be aware, no matter how small the detail, it’s always better to be on the same page and hear from other valets in the network.
Team Channels & Tagging
Once joined to our team, you will have access to every #channel in the company. The default notification setting for slack WON’T alert you for every message, only if someone tags YOU or a channel you are in. So join the channels of accounts you want to be involved with so that you can respond and keep up to date with the state of the service. To add channels:
- Click the (+) button to ‘add’ channels to your list
- Pick the channels (accounts) you want to be a part of.
- Or a manager assigns you to a channel of location you’re needed
Please add this to your notifications
- Go to settings
- under My Keywords, add 911
If you would like to get more involved with the company and receive all messages from all channels, you can choose to receive all messages to stay current on what is going on in the company.
