    Pros

    Management is somewhat relaxed and promotes a comfortable and easy going workstyle. The benefits package is one of the best around.

    Cons

    The lack of discipline has created a less than desirable quality control program and the push seems to be more one of quantity instead of quality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Redirect more of the profits back into existing programs and facilities, and get back to the basics of offering the best product possible.

    I have been working at Mobile Mini

    Pros

    The bonus program is one of the best I have ever seen. Great Branch Managers and some very good ISR's who do not get the credit. But they do receive micro managing in its finest form. On the bright side thank God for Kelly as being the COO.

    Cons

    Too many RM's who really have no idea how to manager or lead. Worthless words spill out of thier mouths. There may be some leadership issues at the branch but that should be an easy fix if the RM's really cared and wouldn't be counter productive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the branches run the branch the way they where hired to do. Cut out the RM and let BM's be able to go to the SVP's since the RM's can't decide where to go to eat without asking the SVP first. Branch managers feel no one ahead of us has our back in good or bad. They sit around and complain to the other RM's about branch issues. I feel this is more true with the newer RM's.

    Pros

    Some very hard workers at local level

    Cons

    Excessive hours, difficult employees at corporate office, too many middle managers and not enough employees, no training, lots of blaming, and very few people are happy to be there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add training program, fire difficult employees, eliminate middle management and add employees, be honest about hours.

    I worked at Mobile Mini full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed the people that I worked with, but the management was terrible. I understand that they have changed quite a bit, but it was bad when I was there

    Cons

    The management cared more about the process of sales, rather than the actual amount sold.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your sales people be creative

    Pros

    Decent benefits, simple product to sell.

    Cons

    Poor Pay for the sales reps and high demands, with quotas that are near impossible to hit. The company is a revolving door, I witnesses about 8 of the 10 sales reps at my branch leave or fired from the company within 1 year. The management of this company looks at everyone as just a number, you are not even human. They even have a video board in the lobby with your sales/call numbers to compare you to everyone else, and criticize and fire you when you are down. They will fire anyone and replace you with another company robot the second you are down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    These are real people that work here, not robots. Treat us as humans, and work with us to improve us.

    Pros

    Great pay, Great benefits, Great stock plan, Strong bonus plan. Had a group of excellent group of branch and regional manager

    Cons

    WOW, Executive Management is a joke. Very poor support and has no concern about the employees. Actions taken to improve safety we simply to save the company money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn what a real team is.

    Pros

    Mobile Mini is really a different company since the CEO change. They are very bottom line driven and very change/process improvement focused. They are expanding their operations at their corporate office and sales center so it's a great time to get in with the company. They offer casual dress code, 15 days of PTO, benefits, annual bonus and monthly company lunches. It feels like Mobile Mini is finally growing up as a company.

    Cons

    There is a lot of change but as long as you can see the big picture it really is for the overall success of the company. If you don't like change this is not the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The change is great and keep making sure everyone is kept in the loop!
