AWFUL-WORST JOB I EVER HAD.DEAD END WORK-MUNDANE-

Property Manager (Current Employee)

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

ConsOld 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 Senior ManagementBring back bonuses & let employees carry PTO out until cap vs annual payouts.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
