    Pros

    Consistent working hours. ‘Easy’ job.

    Cons

    Minimum Wage and benefits (2 weeks of holidays??) Minimal opportunities. Poor leadership and support. Working at all properties in the district costs the minimum wage earner money as gas is expensive and Public Storage doesn’t compensate. Working at least one day every weekend or all weekend so no ‘long’ weekends impacting family time. Many days left working alone including weekends because they can’t/won’t staff properly which means all requirements and daily duties can’t be performed efficiently or safely. When you can’t get things done because you are alone on property, they put the blame on you not them. When working alone because of lack of staffing there is NO available support in customer initiated confrontational situations including threats and verbal abuse because they are not happy with Public Storage Rules and regulations. Exposure to criminals who know the system, get the unit they want at a promo to store (stolen goods) or ‘hideout’ after hours. Poor security – crawling under the main gate or climbing the fence to get what they need. Legacy Software product SSM old and out of date. Poor SSM support and understanding of escalated issues. Poor IT support and service. (Log a ticket) Excessive administrative ‘office’ duties which are all ‘paper oriented’. Physical and repetitive janitorial duties that take their toll on the body. Mice infestations but advertised as we have a ‘rodent management program in place’.

    Little growth opportunity, insulting annual raises, crap bonus and cheap district managers

    Pros

    I enjoy dealing with costumers and the job can be a bit laid back at times. It is a stable job but thats about it.

    Cons

    For such a high demanding company it pays very low near minimum wage with no promises of growing as they will lie at interview to convince new hired employees that they can grow in short period of times. I was informed as well that I didn't have to lift more then 50lbs and realized afterwards that I am forced to lift couches, gym equipment, industrial machinery, etc. Annual raises are ¢10 -¢15 and the work load is very high, I was told that as a Relief Manager I had to relief Property Managers and give costumer services, maintain and manage Public Storage facilities but they never explained that I also had to be a painter, elevator technician, sprinkler pipe system expert/technician, repair man, etc was included for this job. Practically jack of all trades. The various District managers I worked with also are very lousy at there jobs. They will put the employees in hot waters to avoid any complaints that costumers have towards them and they will care less if an employee demonstrates improvement in properties. This company in overall is very unsafe as many customers can be unstable and in an argument can escalate into physical confrontation, I could say that approximately 75% of the times I am working by myself and rely on a camera if I survive any possible danger. There is also a sense of favouritism as the majority of 80% of the employees are from one ethnic country and roughly 10% are random.
