Chrysler has a segregated parking lot. That is, the parking garage and half of the parking lot is available only to Chrysler vehicles and if a non-Chrysler car parks there, it gets ticketed. Even on nights and weekends non-Chrysler vehicles must park further away, though they can ask for an escort into the building from security. The basis for this is loyalty. If you're going to work for a company you might as well buy its products. Like using Linux at Microsoft, a foreign product seems unfair.
The more i think about it the more it bothers me. A car is not some vehicle that people buy every day. Even yearly. Unless someone is on a lease, the chances of switching automobiles within a short span of years is negligible. What then does the segregation truly do? Does it promote buying a Chrysler vehicle or leasing one? I'd have to doubt that, since the employee's better pricing would do that. Does it reward a good choice? Actually, i think it just makes everyone else angry.
Yes, it is Chrysler's right, it just seems silly and short sighted. Should i be in the market for a new car, a parking space is not going to get to me. And even if i did get a Chrysler, i'd have to park further away. It just doesn't seem right.
I feel better know. I just wanted to get that off my chest.
