    I worked at Public Storage full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work hours are nice

    Cons

    Upper management is unprofessional and could care less about anything but lock and insurance which goes into their pockets. They NEVER admit when they mess up,but would rather make it look like a lower level employee did it. They don't trust you to make decisions and lie to customers...

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your boots on the ground!!!
