Orlando, FL

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Public Storage in May 2011.

Interview Details – Got an e-mail about my candidacy and asked that I call to schedule a phone interview. The phone interview and initial communication was enjoyable and professional. Everything seemed to be communicated well and expectations were accurately set. The onsite interview was also enjoyable while a little unorganized.

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Public Storage in March 2013.

Interview Details – Hiring was easy, first you'll get a phone call from the HR who will ask you a couple of questions about your background history and then you'll be asked to do a formal interview. Once at the formal interview they'll ask questions like "name a time you went above and beyond" or "when you provided the greatest customer service."

Interview Question – Most difficult is when they hand you an object (lets say a highlighter) and they say "sell this to me"   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There are NO negotiations usually they have the amount you will earn when you fill out the application. Also there is NO advancement.
