    I worked at Mobile Mini

    Pros

    The people working there are nice people they are always willing to help we are all in the same boat type of attitude. The ping pong palace and cool managers are a plus. They work hard to give you great leads which makes the selling process easier.

    Cons

    They were restructuring while I was employed there a lot of changes going on including the commission plan. The training was inadequate a lot was left up to you to figure out how to solve problems that you were not trained on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training they need better training, It was limited when I was there, a lot of learn on the fly which is easy if you are a quick learner.

    Pros

    They are very professional and run the business well. A really good and fun training week in Tempe.

    Cons

    Too corporate for my tastes. To many steps and approvals to do pretty much anything while there. I was told I needed to hit a certain quota for my last month there, which I did and they still let me go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give a new guy time to build his base of business properly.

    Pros

    Good vacation time. The lowly hourly workers were very nice. It was good to have weekends off. Good free coffee.

    Cons

    You cannot believe management like this. Very arrogant, rude and totally ignorant of how to build a team. Every manager from the local branch, to the regoinal manager to the VP and the CEO-----they do not have a clue as to what they are doing, They do not know how to talk to the lowly employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get off the stage, so to a leadership seminar and quit your huge huge salary.
