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

    Pros

    Great benefits and friendly branch employees

    Cons

    Since the new sales structure was introduced in April 2014, the moral of the company suffered and To much bs with metrics and outbound calls and talk time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't change something that was already working fine just to hope to increase profits. You are already the leader in the industry why change in the first place

    I worked at Mobile Mini

    Pros

    The people working there are nice people they are always willing to help we are all in the same boat type of attitude. The ping pong palace and cool managers are a plus. They work hard to give you great leads which makes the selling process easier.

    Cons

    They were restructuring while I was employed there a lot of changes going on including the commission plan. The training was inadequate a lot was left up to you to figure out how to solve problems that you were not trained on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training they need better training, It was limited when I was there, a lot of learn on the fly which is easy if you are a quick learner.

    I have been working at Mobile Mini for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good business concept with high selling point on the patented Tri-Cam Locking System for leasing and selling steel containers. Many hourly people are "salt of the earth" committed to their positions at the branch levels. Commission plan is favorable but frequently develop disincentive loopholes.

    Cons

    Half-assed execution of a good business concept largely due to the lack of captial reinvestment (i.e.trucks, security offices, and design innovations) may eventually take its toll on overall revenue success. Mobile Mini is miserly cheap and its trucks and containers are in dire need for updating or replacement, office and yard facilities are spartan at best. Most salient is the MMI regional management tendency to resist feedback from its' front line hourly employees.
