    Pros

    work could be laid back if there was more unity on the job,

    Cons

    Store managers do nothing more than sit around and talk on the phone and expect Assistant to do all the work.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure the Store managers are doing there part to ensure a work environment that runs smoothly

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    wake up and smell reality

    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

    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

    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.
