    Interview

    Interviewed by Dan, seems like great guy, questions were in-depth and based on experience. I only made it to the phone interview but I know the in-person interview is three or more hours in length. I decided to pursue other options before the second interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Public Storage (Santa Ana, CA) in December 2011.

    Interview

    Two interviews in Southern California and one interview in Georgia. The interview in Georgia was a fly out and fly back in the same day. It was a relatively straight-forward interview process. They were good about communicating the next steps and for staying in touch. The administrative assistant was on top of things, including communicating the travel arrangements.

    Interview Questions

    • I do not recall any particular question that threw me off. I may have hestitated in a response when I was told that I will be given more work than I can complete.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. Everyone gets paid the same. It does not matter what the cost-of-living is in your particular metropolitan area.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Public Storage (Orlando, FL) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online for the position and was contacted fairly quickly. I spoke with the current DM of the area I applied to and a few preliminary questions were asked. Basic background info was covered. At the end of this conversation a second phone interview was set up. This second interview was much more in depth and lasted about half an hour. During this time I learned that the company was hiring people to train into the DM program, but not start as DM's.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Public Storage (Jersey City, NJ) in June 2014.

    Interview

    I had send my resume on friday, immediately after I received a phone call to set up a conference call with the Sr.DM and VP. We had a 15min conversation, I thought all went well but WITH IN 2 hours I received an email that they didn't think I was the right person for the job. I did not see that coming to be honest. A few questions they asked me:
    What do you know of the company, what would your formal supervisor tell about you, how would this person rate you on a scale from 1-10. You have to tell what your strength is and also weakness. Prepare a few questions yourself for at the end of the conversation. You need to tell them about your management skills.
    I hope I will have better luck next time. Good luck to all that apply. It looks like a great company to work for.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Public Storage (Houston, TX) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Simply a STAR method. Had a phone interview that was a joke followed by a video interview (my first and probably did poor). One of my greatest strengths is communication so in person interviews have never been an issue. It's not big brother, it's a people business. I've managed multiple stores for Fortune 500's with over 200 people so I'm left with an assumption that I just don't have the look they want or my current position as a VP may have them worried of me jumping ship which I've never done to companies who deserve my skill sets. The money is simply a lateral move (75K plus annual bonuses) and not an issue but hey at least the HR ladies are good looking blondes.
