    I have been working at Public Storage full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I like to help people in any way i can so working here helps me do that. Most customers are going through a trying time and its nice when I can make it easier for them. The company has a competive pay and hours are great. I can spend time with my children in the mornings before school and evenings when i get off. Working by myself most of the time, I can manage my time to complete task that need to be done throughout the day so I can enjoy customers.

    Cons

    I been here for over 10 yrs and I have no complaints about my position or co-workers

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    Pays well compared to other self-storage companies. Not a lot of room for growth if there's a long term Property Manager working at your site.

    Cons

    The sales tactics and scripts I had to use made me uncomfortable.

    Pros

    Consistent leadership and unafraid to make a change when it's best for the business. A culture of supporting your team without removing accountability.

    Cons

    Not so much a con, but more of a challenge. This industry is uber competitive and that brings the best out of those that want to be great. Go Team Orange!
