    Pros

    The company is growing and seeking highly talented people and promotes from within. Places a lot of resources in developing their employees.

    Some processes are very manual, thus reducing productivity and efficiency. However, the company is taking the necessary steps to improve these manual processes.

    I worked at Mobile Mini full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Benefits were good. Co workers were friendly.

    Cons

    Horrible upper management. Very high pressure on the inside reps to make a high amount of outbound calls daily. You are micromanaged. They record the calls you make then have to coach you on it continually. The CEO held a meeting on the phone with all the sales rep's and told us we have to have "THE BALLS for Change" . Very Unprofessional

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop ruining the company. You have great employees leaving the company.

    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.

    Unlimited potential! The company rewards employees that do the right things! If you take ownership you will be successful!

    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.

    Hire a Branch Manger that manages in appositive way instead of using profanity and threats to inspire employees to work harder for them.
