    I worked at Simply Self Storage full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The hours are good, you basically are your own boss, some of the customers are great customers, if you have a strong district then you in the good. You can call for help if needed, or email and answers are responded to quick and accurate. Overall this is a pretty good job.

    Cons

    The pay is out of the window for the work you do and some if the stuff u have to put up with, was with the company for a little over a year busted my butt, did all that I was asked, never called out ( even if I was sick), learned the software that was used to a T and mastered what I did. A property manager was let go and instead of being bumped up in a facility I new so well the in's out's and all of the tenants, a new person was brought in to take on that roll and it was very disappointing, I felt let down and stabbed in the back, I was assisting the new person.

    The company is cheap, and have a lot of why's to them.

    I worked at Simply Self Storage full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I would really like to think of some pros but I just can't...this place is freaking miserable! If you're offered a position here I'd say run! Having no job is better than this job

    Cons

    No mileage reimbursement for a position that covers 60 sq miles, district management is disorganized to the point of detriment. For a company that has no idea what they're doing, you would think they would try for a little professionalism but nope, quite the opposite!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow up! Get some goals and work on them, anything to cut out the amount of disorganization

    Pros

    Quiet low stress situations and a lot of down time.

    Cons

    Company is very unstable.
    I started working there and they had 20 properties in town and by the time I left 2 1/2 years later they were down to 4.
    I was receiving notices in the mail saying if a payment wasnt made immediately the sheriff was going to lock the doors.

    Pros

    You work independently, hours are good and pay is not bad in todays economy.

    Cons

    No training or support. Upper management expects you to know what your doing the first day you walk in the door. Health insurance for family coverage cost more than you make in a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A little encouragement and support would achieve your OAR promo. Take a good look at your current DM's.
