    Pros

    It's a company that's been around for a long time and will stand strong even during economic downturns. The company invests in its employees, and you can tell because so many have been here for 10+ years.

    Cons

    You will have to work holidays, or take vacation pay, for all but three (Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years) federal holidays.

    Pros

    Super easy job with no micromanagement and minimal tasks.

    The only con is the pay, making it a short term entry level position.

    Pros

    Independent work environment, you get to manage your own property. Well at least for a day or two if you are a relief manager.

    Cons

    No room to grow, they do not promote from within. The pay is not worth it. They expect you to hit certain goals and numbers but do not reward you for it. Even if you do a lot better than the person that doesn't use still get paid the exact same and only get verbal recognition.

    Advice to Management

    Make it to where employees can do more than just be RF's or PM's

    I worked at Public Storage full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Nothing!!! Not one thing. Zero. Nada. Zilch.

    Cons

    Poverty level salary, demanding and unreasonable management, dangerous work place, disease ridden office and bathrooms, used condoms and human filth and defamation on the property and renters sleeping in the storage units.

    Advice to Management

    WAKE UP AND SMELL THE FILTH!!! the people making money for your homes and cars hate you! They can barely pay their bills and you don't care if they live or die! A Miami property manager was beaten to death and you opened the store the next day as if nothing happened.
