    Pros

    Some very hard workers at local level

    Cons

    Excessive hours, difficult employees at corporate office, too many middle managers and not enough employees, no training, lots of blaming, and very few people are happy to be there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add training program, fire difficult employees, eliminate middle management and add employees, be honest about hours.

    Pros

    Branch level employees are typically solid, reliable, and committed to support a niche storage/office product line, while working in a demanding customer service environment with limited resources.

    Cons

    Top heavy Upper management is erratic and insincere under new CEO. Corporate mandates, goals and values change quarterly while the SG&A soars due to Mobile Mini's leadership struggles with management. The company continues to lose customers due to rate increases and aged inventory. Clearly, Mobile Mini is gearing up for some kind of acquisition as the portable container business is undergoing a wave of global consolidation. As North America's largest competitor, Mobile Mini appears a prime acquisition target for a new holding company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop, Look, Listen, Beware.

    Pros

    Some good people left there, but not for long.

    Cons

    Upper management trying to justify their jobs with endless silliness and finger pointing. No direction, total lack of upper management leadership and micro managing to the hilt. They will blame all but themselves. This is all the way up the ladder to the top.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to all in upper management is to resign. It's the only chance to make things better at a once proud company.

    I worked at Mobile Mini full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits were good. Co workers were friendly.

    Cons

    Horrible upper management. Very high pressure on the inside reps to make a high amount of outbound calls daily. You are micromanaged. They record the calls you make then have to coach you on it continually. The CEO held a meeting on the phone with all the sales rep's and told us we have to have "THE BALLS for Change" . Very Unprofessional

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop ruining the company. You have great employees leaving the company.

    Pros

    I cannot think of anything that was good about the job

    Cons

    Management does not know what they are doing. They point fingers and blame everyone but themselves

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire a Branch Manger that manages in appositive way instead of using profanity and threats to inspire employees to work harder for them.

    Pros

    Good vacation time. The lowly hourly workers were very nice. It was good to have weekends off. Good free coffee.

    Cons

    You cannot believe management like this. Very arrogant, rude and totally ignorant of how to build a team. Every manager from the local branch, to the regoinal manager to the VP and the CEO-----they do not have a clue as to what they are doing, They do not know how to talk to the lowly employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get off the stage, so to a leadership seminar and quit your huge huge salary.

    Pros

    MM was formerly a family owned/managed company which had strong core values that made working there rewarding and fun and respected employee contributions and knowledge.

    Cons

    The new CEO has decided to fire the key individuals who were part of the "old regime" and bring in his buddies from his former company as replacements, or in some cases, they have terminated "older workers" and are now advertising for the same job with the same responsibilities. Is this not discrimination for the older workers?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find out what people really do in your company before making a decision to fire them. You have gutted the historical knowledge and experience of this company all in the interest of making a buck! The terminations were also done without any plan on who will do the job in the future.

    Position was not what I expected

    Former Employee - Inside Sales
    Former Employee - Inside Sales

    I worked at Mobile Mini full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Health, vision and dental insurance benefits are good and have low premiums.
    Coworkers are nice and very helpful.
    Strict adherence to 8 to 5. Overtime not expected or allowed.

    Cons

    Inside sales position is high pressure, extremely micromanaged telemarketing. Inside and outside cold calls required. Not my cup of tea. Emphasis on quantity of work, not quality. Unrealistic expectations.

    Pros

    The extra long weekend at Thanksgiving and the extra day at Christmas.

    Cons

    Run by self centered over paid regional and branch managers. I have a masters in business and most regionals and branch managers either have less than that or no degree at all. Very clicky and the core values they preach are a laugh as management doesn't live by them. You have fight for a decent wage and then management has it out for you because you want what you are worth. Most branch managers have no clue on how to actually run the branch. Management will use all employees until they no longer need you. When you leave the company your benefits are cut off that day not 30 days more as the law states. If you go to collect unemployment make sure you have your last few paystubs and last W-2 along with companies Fed ID # because they do not return wages to states employment offices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean out the board and get some memebers that have feelings along with all regional, corporate and branch managers should have feelings for thier fellow employees.
