Former Employee - District Manager Public Storage  in  Washington, DC
Former Employee - District Manager Public Storage in Washington, DC

I worked at Public Storage full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

The company offers a good base,opportunity for bonuses, PTO and benefits. There is some freedom to set your own daily schedule.

Cons

No ability to make managerial decisions, you become a corporate robot. There is an expectation to work from 7 am to 6 pm and 2 hours of computer work after hours. The company does not value it's employees and has a retention rate of 40%. The company cuts corners in every aspect of the business in order to drive the stock price no matter what the impact is to the employee or the customer

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take time to invest and listen to your employees. An empolyee that loves their job and their employeer will be more impactful to your business than the employee that is not respected and and feels disposable

    I worked at Public Storage full-time

    Pros

    Stable company, financially profitable, good benefits, accrued time off.

    Cons

    Extremely low 11$/hr pay for extensive duties expected, no time to use time off, flavor of the month type management with constantly changing expectations, extremely micromanaged and dictated on all levels. No real feedback or compromise allowed from employees. 40% employee turnover ratio for company. No room to grow within company if successful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to feedback and performance improvement ideas from the ground level workers. Maintain positive environment that encourages and rewards success monetarily. Don't demand unrealistic sales goals. Shareholders' wishes should be balanced with employee needs and reality.

    I have been working at Public Storage full-time

    Pros

    - The pay is good
    - Work independently
    - Meet great people such as customers or/employees
    - Can be active around the work place
    - Gain experience in customer service and retail work.
    - Offers a bonus for over meeting company expectations

    Cons

    - "Company expectations" (what ever it may be) is unrealistic
    - Their pay dates are on specific days of the month, so the pay is never the same every month
    - Upper management couldn't give a rats behind about you or what they are inflicting in your personal life. (Expects you to eliminate your personal life for the company)
    - Expects you to drive to numerous locations with out compensating for mileage no matter the distance.
    - Changes the bonus system when suitable for them, also it is unattainable.
    - Does not have an anonymous compliance department even though they say it is anonymous .
    - makes you work overtime but no overtime pay (asks you to work extra hours but tells you to eliminate hours from a different day so there isn't over 40 hours on you time by the end of the week or pushes your days off to the end of the week and make you work a 7 day stretch)
    - the over turn rate between relief and property manages are ridiculous which ends up hurting the rest of the district when it boils down to coverage (which the lack of coverage is already existing)
    - single coverage is majority of the work week (normally) and could even be the entire work week (expects you to do the work of 2 people by yourself).
    - getting an approval to get something fixed in THEIR facility is like pulling teeth and even if it is approved, the job is less then inadequate so the object breaks down in less than a week.
    - ridiculously micro-managed but can't provide us with updated technology.
    I'm sure there is a lot more but I can't sit here and say it all, ill just get myself enraged.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of cracking the whip on the relief and property managers, try to talk with them and take what they say in consideration. Not everyone of them are liars and some may even have great ideas on how to improve business, since they are the only ones who work with customers directly. PTO is what can help us deal with this job a little better, so put it back the way it was.
