    Current Employee - District Team Leader in Garland, TX

    I have been working at Extra Space Storage full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule Great work life balance On site apartment (some positions) 50% computer work 50% physical activity

    Cons

    Job can be a little physical taxing some times but nothing near other jobs I've had. Really not many cons I can think of

    Advice to Management

    Keep on leading the industry in innovation and constantly adapt to an ever changing retail landscape. Also implement online leases people can fill out to drive more business.

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

    Pros

    Work Culture is great and it is a nice place to work for....

    Cons

    Poor pay. Store Manager starts around $15 to $16 per hour. Imagine yourself working for a facility with another employee were there is more than 600-1000 units. You clean units, facility,bathrooms, do auctions process, call customers for rentals, late payments. Do cash handling, call vendors and much more... If you work with an assistant that you consider is not good, you could only tell your DM. *Remember the DM's...

    I have been working at Extra Space Storage full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    *Good pay and consistent hours *If you like to be active and keep going at work, this position can give you that *Evenings are free *Good for students that take evening classes after 6pm

    Cons

    *Sometimes communication needs to be more advanced *District Manager is the supervisor, but sometimes they are too busy to assist you, so you rely on others with seniority. This creates an awkward dynamic because the Store Manager isn't really your supervisor, but a higher ranking coworker.

    Advice to Management

    Get an online program that combines your HR items AND also has the capability to create and manage work schedules for districts and individual employees.

    Pros

    Never work past 6pm and every Sunday off. If you're a people person, then this is the job for you.

    Cons

    Make you go between sites until you become a manager. Some sites are old and nasty.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe spend less time on role playing and spend more time showing as much of the computer system as possible.

    Pros

    Development, fair leadership, reasonable levels of autonomy.

    Cons

    Too focused on hiring leaders that lack industry knowledge, trying very hard to centralize operations which limits creativity

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

    Pros

    The bosses really care about you and always ask what they can do for you to make sure you are doing okay. They encourage you to be open about any feelings you are having personal or professional. They also love growth in the company and encourage you to move up in the company, and are happy when you want to. Everyone in your district is also very wiling and able to give you a hand and help you in any way they can. The...

    Cons

    One small downside is that you do have to work 8 hour days on Saturday, which is a little vexing, but not too bad. But the main downside of working at Extra Space is the compensation. Sometimes when the days are long and you have 100 things to do while trying to rent to customer's, it does feel like we are inadequately compensated. For instance, I have to pay a lot of different bills every month. I just graduated college...

    Advice to Management

    Honestly, the management does everything they can to try and make sure you are comfortable and happy with the environment that you are in. I really have no complaints about the job or the bosses, because they are both great. I mean yes, sometimes if you work at a busier store, the days get crazy and you feel like you are running around with you head cut off, and that can get a little stressful. But the day goes by fast...

    I have been working at Extra Space Storage full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Stability, customer interaction and hours of operation.

    Cons

    Finding reliable employees that are willing to do all job duties and carry their own weight. The staff that we hire for handyman work is always the lowest bid and 9 times out of 10 the work is mediocre at best. Not enough employees in our area but we just recently hired two new employees so hopefully it will get better. The Store Managers should get paid higher wages considering all of the physical work that is weighed...

    Advice to Management

    If you want employees to work hard the pay needs to meet the work we do. I was raised with morals and values which sets me apart from the younger generation so I will get every job done that needs to be done but most of the other employees do the minimum amount of work just to get by and it makes it hard on everyone that works behind those type of employees. Taking pride in what you do is the way I look at it but not...
