Pros

No one breathing down your neck all day.

Cons

We are pushed and pushed and pushed to sell. We are reprimanded when we don't get a lock sale with a rental. They think we are lying to them when the customer won't buy boxes with a rental. WE are the ONLY ones who bring in ANY revenue, yet we are treated like second-class citizens and the company keeps reducing our bonus program. Upper management lives like kings while we struggle to make ends meet. The new bonus programs says the company expects "40%" of "eligible managers" to earn a bonus. Wowee! That means they expect 60% WON'T??? How encouraging! The DMs and higher get four times the bonus money we get, and we do all of the work bringing in the $$. Disgusting!

Advice to Management

Show us we are appreciated and give us encouragement, instead of always reprimanding us for what we didn't do or accomplish. Morale is very very low.

    Pros

    A way to get PM experience to move on wards if you can get out.

    Cons

    Old Shurgard properties have more issues than newer PS properties.
    Large facilities have security issues after hours. Lack of cameras make it virtually impossible to always find those responsible.
    No more monthly bonus-
    PTO paid out after many diligently saved hours.Either use it or loose it to annual payouts..
    DM's far to pushy on requirement to sell with every rental vs employee trans reports & goal sheets.
    Some dist have 2 PS on same street making competition & occupancy all that much more difficult.
    DM's only stay a year.reviews from prev DM no matter how good are re-written with very new DM.
    Nothing you did in prev years reflects with current review..
    High expectations-
    Vendors junk & hauls almost impossible to get approvals for abandon goods.
    Over weighted position vs pay for performance metrics.
    Inability to take phone payments & delinquent customers not coming in for EOM payments.
    Always loosing occupancy to Auctions!
    DM's don't care about employees just about numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back bonuses & let employees carry PTO out until cap vs annual payouts.

    Pros

    You dont have a manager breathing down your neck on what to do. The environment isn't stressful. You have a set schedule and you never work late.

    Cons

    Its a extremely boring job and if you are not a property manager you have to work at various locations. Pay is not all that great. The environment may not always seem safe and it is boring and mundane.
