Pros

The product is the best and most secure storage containers in the industry, with the tricam locking system. The various sizes and styles fit virtually any need. The training is getting better. They seem to be getting a bit more up to date with technology and using less paper with thier contracts.

Cons

Don't turn your back on them, they will lay you off in a heartbeat. Constantly changing policies and procedures. They start new procedures before they really try them out. So of course the employees have to work 10 times harder to work the bugs out. The pay is really low if you are trying to support a family. The bonus and commission structure is very low unless your the only sales person in that branch. The National Sales Center will eventually (soon) eliminate the need for any sales people at local branches. Everything is pointing to that and it is inevitable.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay the people that bring in the business more. Give the branches more empowerment and less Big Brother Control. Less policy and procedure changes. They have WAY too much time.

    A company that needs to learn from history, reassess the value of employees.

    Pros

    At first they start you off with a $500.00 per week salary, until the end of your ninety days are up, between which time you shoud have built up enough business with contractors in your region that you have repeat business. After the ninety days are up the salary per week is dropped down to $200.00 per week. The products that they lease and/or sell are a much higher quality, much higher security than the competitors have to offer! Mobile mini products are more expensive than the competitors, however when it comes to securing jobsite materials, tools,equipment, all of which are the contractors very expensive investments in order to complete their jobs, it is worth it!

    Cons

    First of all the training should be much more extensive, when a company chooses to do basic training and then stop there, they are going to get the basic results. No real growth of the employee, no in depth knowledge of how to attract business by offering things such as customized designs for all who wish to have a "DIFFERENT" type of ground office built to specifications based on"THEIR" needs and future needs, cost analysis. If the communication were put in place so that the basic training involved or even was extended into the "next level" the company would make more money ......O....and so would the little employee!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The first part of advice would be in regards to placing that extra bit of value towards the leasing /sales rep, the training, the next level training, the investment in the people that move your merchandise, that would create less turnover!

    Pros

    There are none. Avoid this company at all costs. Work for Mcdonalds before you work for this company. There is no upside!!!

    Cons

    Low Pay. Management treats you like a dog. There is no respect what so ever for their employees. There is a big difrence between the have & have nots in the company. You can tell how people are being paid by the cars in the parking lot. Those who have the Vets & Hummers and those who have the GEO's. If it was legal for them to hire illegal aliens to do the same jobs that the office people do,they would fire every body & hire the illegals. Ownership and management does not care for or about the employees. This company does "creative" book keeping as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They'll do what they want. Like I said, they just don't care what people think.
