    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Public Storage (Anaheim, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Once he called, he put me on hold for about a minute to review my resume he said. Awkward. He said, "Thank you for that", about 30 times in the interview. Robot. Little late calling me for the interview. Blamed it on the meeting before. Overall the experience was fine. The Bench District Manager position was explained to me as an "extra" floater position. When someone quits or whatever this person fills that spot to that person's district. So, you could be put anywhere. I asked specifically and was told the hours are Monday - Friday but sometimes Saturday. The Storage opens at 9:30 and you'll be home by 5PM every night. I don't know if this is true or not.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Public Storage in May 2015.

    Interview

    My resume was found by a recruiter. Phone screen, face to face interview, ride a long (spend half a day with current DM), Region VP interview, & executive VP interview. After face to face I was emailed and told they were looking at other candidates, after what seemed to be such a personable interview process I wish they would have called me and let me know what they disliked, so I may use on future interviews.

    They use the A Model Interview Process.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Public Storage (Gilbert, AZ).

    Interview

    I was initially contacted via email to inform me that they would like to interview me over the phone. I contacted the recruiter that same day to setup the phone interview. I was told about both the Customer Service position, and the Sales position, and asked which one I was more interested in, I chose Sales for the higher pay, and bonus compensation.
    The phone interview was pretty basic to start. Just a review of your experience, and I felt she wanted to get a sense of my determination. That interview concluded with a more difficult role play in which I had to sell her baseball caps for her sons baseball team.
    I was later contacted by the recruiter for an in person panel interview, which was attended by 2 Sales Supervisors, and the Sales Manager of the entire office. The next day I was offered the Sales position, starting the 6 week training course in 2 weeks. I remained there successfully for years. It is a very nice place to work especially the peers and local management.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Public Storage (Austin, TX) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Telephone Interview with the Regional Vice President. Pretty standard stuff. No real surprises regarding the questions. Prefer a face-to-face. Not sure what else I can say, but I have to use at least 50 words here, so that is basically what I am doing. I think that is 50.
