I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Public Storage in Sep 2021

Interview

Such a strange process and a terrible first (and last) impression. I applied for the position online. My application was listed as "under review" for about 10 days. Then I received an email from HR stating they had reviewed my application and were trying to reach me. Great! Except it went on to say that since they were unable to reach me, they were closing my application. Which was odd since this email was the first I'd heard from the company, they had my correct phone number (and obviously a good email address), yet no one from the company had ever actually called. Fortunately (or so I thought) the close of the message included an email address to an actual person with instructions to let them know if I was still interested in the position. Smart! I followed up with an email right away, apologizing for any difficulty getting in touch. (I did that out of common courtesy which, as you will see, is a foreign concept to them.) After confirming my interest, I included both my cell phone number and email address again, just to be on the safe side. Another week passes, no response. I followed up again because at this point it seems very strange to me that they expressed interest in scheduling an interview for the position but then didn't respond. No email, no call, no nothing. I'm also now certain this isn't a match for me, but I wanted to see what would happen. So I waited another week and followed up again. Surprise, no response! It's not all bad news, though, as I eventually did hear from the company. Twice, in fact. The first was an exciting automated email from a do not reply address saying I was not being considered for the position. The second was an email notifying me that they were recruiting for a District Manager in the very market I had applied for in the first place. Can't make this stuff up! Advice to HR? Work on communication issues, especially with top candidates. A five second email out of common courtesy would have gone a long way. Also? There is probably a reason why you are constantly having to recruit for multi-unit managers. Perhaps by addressing the internal recruiting process which clearly has some significant opportunity areas, you might be able to on-board the very people who can help resolve embarrassing situations such as this one. Just a thought, what do I know? Anyway, good luck finding the right candidate. Overall I feel like I've dodged a bullet, I'm sorry to say.

The interview was great. I had to do a mock sale call with a script, that they provided me with a day before the interview. They asked questions about my past sales history and would I be comfortable working a busy schedule with mandatory overtime.

The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Public Storage (Matthews, NC)

Interview

Had a time scheduled with a senior district manager for a phone screen. A completely different person called, citing that the other DM was busy in the market. The first question I was asked was about salary. I was told that the position paid $73k per year, plus 12k annual bonus, and am I willing to work for that because it is non-negotiable. I was immediately turned off by this organization. The questions were pretty standard, list strengths, weaknesses, how many employees did I oversee in my previous role, etc. the interviewer’s answers to my questions however were huge red flags. I asked her to describe for me in her words the company culture. Her answer had very little to do with company goals, vision, attitudes, etc.....she basically she told me that their SVP once had the same role I was applying for. I asked her about the career path for their property managers to become DMs, and I was literally told that they do not provide their on site managers with the skills to move into a DM role. I must have asked too many difficult questions. I was not moved forward in the recruiting process.

I applied online. I interviewed at Public Storage (New York, NY) in Jan 2021

Interview

Not professional at all. Lady called me to schedule interview, sent me invite for a 4:30am interview. I reply back to confirm and she does. No big deal, just thought it was a strange time. Wake up, wait for the call... Never get it. Sent email to follow up and she tells me.. Sorry it was at 4:30pm like I figures it was before I sent her the email to confirm the time. The RGM calls me wit a DM on the line, very nice lady. The entire interview I felt she was trying to thought me out of wanting the position. (Are you sure you are wanting to commit?) (The pay is only this much.) Asking for to relocate for an extra 10 minutes of a drive..??? I am well qualified for the job and would have done a amazing job. Felt more like they are wanting to hire someone with less knowledge and experience that them. Not a good thing.
