Beware of PARK’NFLY Winnipeg
THE DIRTY ARMY: Nik, this airport valet parking service company and its managers are scamming and abusing both their customers and employees. To begin with, the company is advertising itself as “indoor parking service,” and customers are promised that their vehicles, left on company’s indoor site prior to flight, are going to be parked indoor all along. However, after the customers left to the airport, many of the vehicles are driven to an outdoor lot and are only brought back to the indoor lot one day prior to the known return date of the costumers from their trips. This involves, at winter time, and as the outdoor lot has only very few block heaters, charging the drained battery of the vehicle, and all without informing the costumers about it.
Second, the cashiers of this company have been shamelessly instructed by management not to make mention of any coupons or discounts available, but if the customer brings it up and insists. When vehicles are damaged while parked in any of the well crowded and narrow lots, the company has an unwritten policy of denying responsibility and argue that it was a pre-existing condition that was not noticed as the vehicle was dirty. The employees who park the vehicles are very unionized and very low paid. Accordingly, most of them are inexperienced drivers. Therefore, damage is almost certain to any vehicle of large size and especially vehicles equipped with a manual transmission. Company is always short in staff, and as result its shuttle buses are many times late when driving customers to the airport and back.
Moreover, the General Manager of the Winnipeg branch, LUC NOEL, who until not long ago drove a shuttle bus for this same company around the Toronto airport, is a rude and ignorant young man, with a loud voice and heavy French accent. This Luc is terrorizing employees and even sexually harassing some. The heavy built Luc was witnessed to be yelling at employees, firing them over the phone, and mocking the employees who are immigrants over their accent. His secretary has been complaining that he referred to himself, in front of others, as ‘pimp’ who recruited her after ‘meeting her in the streets where she worked.’ She has further complained that he has been routinely staring at her, and has shown her, many times, pictures of naked men.
When confronted, Luc has been using his deputy, Steven, to defend against the allegations and hush the complaints. This Steven, being pressured to defend Luc, suggested that Luc oppose no risk to the secretary, as he is in fact gay, that he was just joking, and that deserves leeway as he is new to Winnipeg and its people. When facing the possibility of a formal complaint Luc responded by saying that the company is now owned by Chinese owners who are far away and do not care, and that when becomes necessary the company is using a team of highly priced aggressive Jewish lawyers… What a shameful and unprofessional operation… Customers and employees, beware!
