Current Employee - Property Manager
Current Employee - Property Manager

I have been working at Public Storage full-time (more than 3 years)

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Customers are a pretty decent bunch. Decent work hours Benefits are a lot better than what they were and pay....eh....it's slim pickins these days. You can do a lot worse else where.

    Cons

    Bonus program changes on an annual basis to make it harder to obtain a decent payout. Job is touted as a customer service/management job but is actually sales. Upper management rules by intimidation. Because this is a publically traded company properties are falling apart and PM's can't do much about it other than field complaints. You have the title of manager but you are pretty much bottom rung of the food chain. District managers and regional managers get their bonus based on YOUR work and it's way more money than anything you will ever get for a bonus (which went from quarterly to monthly to annually). Also they do not promote from within so it's a pretty dead end job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reconize the faces of your company, the relief manager and property managers as the reason buisness is driven.

    I worked at Public Storage full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Worked with some great hard working people that make the best out of work.

    Cons

    Another cheap and greedy corporation. Look up corporate greed in the dictionary and you will find Public Storage there. Keeps cost low for Wall Street investors. Low care about workers making a living wage. Insurance after 6 months of work. .25 cent raises. Low $10-$12 pay. Most places have no security cameras, or ways to combat many of the rude, and dangerous customers. Low budget work environment. Corp will push you to sell everything but do not reward you for the effort.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower your workers with pride, give more than .25 cent raises after each year of employment. Make the sites safer by installing security cameras in every office.
