    I have been working at Storquest full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great environment and culture. District Manager is team oriented and always available for help. Co-workers are very positive about their experience with StorQuest and are very welcoming.

    Cons

    None at this time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, environment and positive culture. Promote from within whenever possible.

    I worked at Storquest (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Schedule and benefits and apartment. Schedule is 9-6 and you get paid vacation and you can get an apartment on site

    Cons

    There is a lot of favoritism going on, a lot of unfairness. I worked there for 4 years and received a new District Manager and he had his favorite employees and if you weren't his favorite he made your work life hard. People that actually worked and tried hard he treated them bad and the ones that messed up he was good to them because he favored them. I got fired for unreasonable reasons and others that actually did things that meant termination he gave them chance after chance. If you wanted to be on Dm's good side you had to kiss butt, if not forget it no matter how hard you tried it wasn't good enough. Also HR did not have your back at all. If you went to talk to HR about an issue you had with your DM they would go and tell them. Very unprofessional.

    Advice to Management

    They need to make sure employees are treated fairly there should be no favoritism from anyone and you should't have to kiss butt to get anywhere or for your job to be safe

    I have been working at Storquest full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Sick pay, paid time off, and if you reach your rental goal you get either a $20 per rental bonus as a MIT, or $40 per rental bonus as a store manager. Only thing is they set the rental goal so high for some stores that it’s impossible to ever get a bonus.

    Cons

    Long hours, customers cursing you out for rental increases, have to be a brown noser to get a raise and/or a promotion. The pay is low for the amount of work you do. There is NO communication what so ever between team leads and upper management. If you are an assistant manager or MIT be prepared to work EVERY Sunday and Monday alone as those are “mandatory days off for store managers”. The MIT will be treated like a bellman (basically a janitor). There is no room for growth as the store managers have been there for 2-12 years and are not leaving anytime soon with the free apartment they get (yet get paid about the same amount as a MIT again unless you kiss up to management and are doing questionable acts to get higher pay)

    Advice to Management

    Look into your district manager as 12 employees quit so far this year and the years not over yet. New employees that the district manger knows come in making $1.00- $2.50 more than employees who have been there for over a year or two. Favoritism and brown nosing are very rampant here in the Colorado district. Communication needs to be worked on as there is no communication between team leads and team members. Training across the board needs to be done in all the stores, as some stores are failing their audits back to back and store managers as well as MIT’s are still working there after failing audits.

    District manager is easy to work with, he does his best to help his employees.

    Cons

    Communication
    Pay is low! Full time employee & still living pay check to pay check because of cost of living in Colorado.

    Pros

    Everybody is like family. The pay is great. Nobody is unprofessional.If there is a problem, it is always addressed and taken care of. You are free to listen to your music when doing administrative work.

    Cons

    I don't have any issues working here. I have loved it since I started! The only thing is not having a bellman on our property,making our work load extensive on some days more than others.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing to give,everyone does a fantastic job.

    Pros

    teamwork, learning, fellow employees, customer service

    Cons

    not appreciated, no growth, low pay, favoritism, poor training and hiring

    Advice to Management

    appreciate your employees like you used to two years ago. Used to be excited about this company, the opportunity to advance and believed in the company name and there philosophy. It's all changed, everyone quits from the top dogs at corporate down to the managers and assistant managers. The constant turnover is a sign of greed and lack of appreciation for there employees. Makes me sad because I truly love my job. No one wants to work for a company where they don't feel appreciated or compensated for all the years of hard work and commitment.

    Pros

    Initially, the company embraces you and offers up carrots and bonuses to engage your skill-set and talents. Once those have been saturated it is a very different story.

    Cons

    I worked with this company for more than five years and it was a rocky and stressful experience. You have a few specific stations that are properly paid...the rest, not even close!

    Advice to Management

    Switch out human resources staffing for a group with better/valid credentials.

    Management is doing what they need to to make the business profitable. Unfortunately, the business model included hiring employees who are either desperate or do not have the skill set to seek better opportunities.
