    District Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Columbus, OH
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Public Storage (Columbus, OH).

    Interview

    Initial interview was a more a phone screen to access compatibility and general information. Asked about current position, job responsibilities, time commitment, etc. 2nd interview was in person(video) done with a current Distrct manager and their boss. More indepth and going over initial responses from the phone screen. Scripted and took about an hour - hour and half. After this you will progress to a ride along with a district manager to see daily responsibilities and some of the projects, (lock cuts, site evaluation) more informal and learning the position. After this there is an interview with the DVP and then with the COO. Normally flown out to texas or California but was done as a video interview because of current Covid-19 issues. More indepth, asking more about management style, and evaluating the DISC assessment that is taken.

    Store Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Oklahoma City, OK
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Public Storage (Oklahoma City, OK) in January 2020.

    Interview

    Very staid with generic questions regarding past experience and where I see myself in the future. There was no personality in the questions or in the interviewer. Overall, it was not a good interview and I walked away feeling as though I did not get a chance to put my best foot forward.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Public Storage (Pompano Beach, FL) in October 2019.

    Interview

    Went through a phone and a 1 on 1 interview. It went very well. You can easily be yourself because it is a pretty laid back job. I would recommend this for someone that is starting off with needing a job

    District Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Public Storage (New York, NY) in September 2019.

    Interview

    Process took almost 2 months from application to hire date. Starts with a phone interview with the hiring manager, then an in person interview with the hiring manager and at least one other person, in some cases the RVP; be prepared as this particular part of the interview can run 2-3 hours. Once that is complete there will be a ride along with a current District Manager who will provide their feedback to the hiring manager. If all goes well with that the final step is to either go to California or Texas for a final interview.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Public Storage (Dallas, TX) in April 2019.

    Interview

    Wouldn't class it as an interview, wasn't challenging. Setting seemed unorganized, nothing that jumped out to keep this at the front of my mind. Negative in the point of the interviewer not engaging very much at all.
