Featured Review

Current Employee - Relief Manager

I have been working at Public Storage full-time for less than a year

Pros

There are so many things that I love about this job. Me and my District Manager have an amazing relationship, the leniency of the job is great, we have an amazing team of people that we work with and... the teamwork that everyone shares is outstanding!! All in all I love my job so much and the people that I work with are amazing! Were like one big family! Incentive bonuses for properties too :) who doesnt want an extra $150 bonus!

Cons

The office can definitely get a little hectic and time management is definitely a huge factor. Personally i think the pay is a little low for what we go through being on the front lines but you cant... win them all.

Advice to Management

Maybe some raises and more insensitive for people who are on the front lines working in the offices and dealing with customers all day.

Current Employee - District Manager

I have been working at Extra Space Storage full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

You get a sense that upper management recognizes the importance of and the contributions made by its employees. Solid opportunities for growth.

Cons

I can't think of any significant cons. Perhaps the rapid growth of the company is contributing to a reduction in that family feel that Extra Space once had.

Advice to Management

Continue to demonstrate your appreciation for your employees and recognize their value.
