I worked for the company 6 years. They do provide managers with a free apartment and utilities, but you better hope nothing breaks or needs repairs because you will have to literally wait years for anything to be fixed. Corporate does not take care of its managers. Yes, in addition to a crappy hourly salary, they will give you bonuses-but on their terms which can change midstream. Even the plan itself is subject to change yearly. One yr. it's based on revenue, another time it's based on budget. And don't allow too many move outs or Corp. will jump down your throat. The people running the Corp. office are numb sculls who don't have a clue about managing a local storage facility. They don't realize that the business can sometimes be seasonal. But once you are in THEIR apartment and under THEIR "rule", you are subject to them. They have you captured and can turn on you in a moment's notice. These people are vindictive bullies who you better not cross. Even if you bonus and have the best numbers, they will let you go if they don't like you.
Already shared a few. Just way too many. Be careful for these people will suck you in with their smiles and "friendly" ways only to turn on you later. Have a plan ready in case they give you 6 days to vacate the apartment or cut off your health insurance.
Advice to Management
Grow up! Your local managers are the best thing you have going for this company, but you will never realize that because of the greed that has sucked you in! Get outside of your world and learn the real business.
