    I have been working at Uncle Bob's Self Storage full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    This company really cares about their employees. So far every person that I have seen or meet from upper management is very nice. This company pays very fairly considering how low a lot of other companies pay their employees

    Cons

    This company does not have to many down sides one would be that you work until 6 pm which does not leave very much time to do anything after work.

    Pros

    Living onsite is a pro and a con

    Cons

    They are doing away with living onsite, that makes the pay even more dismal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to micromanage your managers and let them be managers.

    I have been working at Uncle Bob's Self Storage

    Pros

    most storage customer are great -

    Cons

    employees steal from the company - management does nothing about it... if you have stock = sell... they have a corporate Q&A monthly and never answer the question put forward and they choose the question. But its mandatory to watch their video. Bonus' are bogus... the company core values are not up held at store level - that means they are not up held at any level... 10.00 per hour to clean, sweep, dust, blow leaves or snow and then try to help a customer all dirty and smelly... not a nice way to handle customers... so many things wrong - needs a lot of help

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    wake up and smell reality

    I worked at Uncle Bob's Self Storage

    Pros

    Great interaction with many different types of customers. Has internal software guide to help sell & go over policy's. Hear many stories about customers life.

    Cons

    Management level and higher has very poor communication. The right thing could be wrong or vice versus. This job is more if u have already retire and need something to do, so incase u get let go because budget can't afford you or some other random poor reason this action wouldn't hurt u financially.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication from a store manager level and higher needs to be a lot better. Many store managers get confuse base on response from area manager level vs corp level. U don't know who to follow and if u do chose one and it's wrong management will blame it back on store manager/employee not them self.

    I have been working at Uncle Bob's Self Storage full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Benefits are ok for full time employees, hours work (mostly) well with family life, depending on location bonuses can be made, interaction with the public can be fun.

    Cons

    Paperwork overload, upper management is out of touch with store level employees, no room for growth, policies change frequently which causes confusion and errors by employees who then get reprimanded for it, open 7 days a week and weekends are mandatory.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to understand how it really is on the store level. Most of the changes and policies that are implemented are not practical and make our jobs so much harder.

    Pros

    Love customers, and job itslef

    Cons

    Supervisor in this area does most things opposite of company policy and tries to force you to do it his way. He has no interest in hiring any female over the age of 40 and he's known as a bully.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more hands on. Stop giving so much authority to area managers and there's no one to check the area manager. You have an area manager in this area who's very inappropriate and, you make employees fill out surveys that you don't read, I know you don't because there have been numerous managers, including myself, that gave much detail about things going on, some illegal, and to this day, it was never checked out.

    Pros

    flexible schedule, business hours are family friendly,company growing, wants to hear employee opinion,training program is getting better,fair pay at store level, they value the employee,decent bonus structure

    Cons

    promotion unlikely if you do not live in Buffalo or cannot relocate so basically a dead end job once you reach store management and area management levels. this also affects career path developmental skills so the company will always have to go outside for new employees to fill higher positions. Staffing at stores is slim no back up managers. No family medical benefits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    work on staffing and developing people even if they do not live in Buffalo. middle management salaries are not competitive with industry
