    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.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Public Storage (Pasadena, MD) in June 2013.

    Interview

    more of a conversation than an interview, not very many questions and more so a conversation of who i was and then we went on a tangent about sports and everything but the job. I was pretty surprised, and was expecting something completely different. unfortunately, the person who interviewed me left the week before i started.
