With nearly 600 employees and approximately 400 of them working right here in Buffalo, Allpro Parking is hiring for seasonal and full-time positions.

"One of the things we're always hiring for is work out at New Era Field for the Buffalo Bills games," said CEO Rick Serra. "We pay usually anywhere from $1 to $5 more [than minimum wage] per hour depending on the positions and the responsibilities out there."

The company - which has approximately 55 parking lots and garages in the city - is also hiring event staff, valet parking attendants, customer service reps and a receptionist.

You'll need to have a New York State driver's license and you really have to be friendly and courteous. Serra said they do look for high school graduates and offer training on the job.

They also provide services at health care facilities in the city.

"We're at all the major hospitals offering valet services, we also do shuttling of some of the employees and visitors to some of the hospitals here," said Serra.

The company is also involved in it's community; one event each year involves about 15 to 20 employees volunteering their own time to go to Mercy Hospital and help with the spring clean up.

"We walk around the hospital campus and pick up debris and clean the area around the hospital," said Serra.
