    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Public Storage (Houston, TX) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I literally was coming from an interview and saw they were having a job fair. Already dressed I thought why not. In the parking lot I pulled up the company's information on wiki, went inside and signed in. I then met with someone who asked me what i knew about the company, relayed the information I had just retrieved and explained I had no customer service experience.

    District Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Public Storage (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Phone with the regional manager. FYI, they REQUIRE a BA for just a DM position even though I found out later they burn through these positions rather quickly explaining why they continue to post for DM positions in the same area. They FORCE their DMs to post open DM positions on Linkedin and elsewhere. Just not worth the effort.

    District Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Public Storage (San Francisco, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview with a regional manager, ask several great questions, about my intentions for future growth with PS, did no want to relocate due but would consider later if the right offer came along. Said they would get back with me by Monday 03-27-17, but did not contact me either by phone or email. They were looking for bench DM's, looks as if they really don't have immediate openings for DM's but is advertising as if one is needed soon but is really looking for someone several months down the road.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Public Storage in February 2017.

    Interview

    Very detailed and in-depth interview process. Interviewed with a recruiter, and RVP and then the SRVP/SDM.
    RVP phone interview was about an hour long. Detailed situational questions and past experiences
    SRVP/SDM- face to face interview that I was unaware that there would be 2 interviewers present. Both had their laptops up. 1 would read the question, the other would type the answer. Went over the DISC assessment. Interview was scheduled to only be 2 hours, which turned into 2 hours and 45 minutes. Very structured. Left the interview mentally exhausted.
