I've been in the storage industry for 13 plus years, and can honestly say thus far Compass has been a blessing. I enjoy interacting with customers of both Compass and Uhaul. Storage as a career may not be for everyone but we deal with EVERY type of person you can imagine.
It's a blessing to know that management has your back, and genuinely cares how things are going in the business AND on a personal level. The company is growing quickly and with that growth comes some of the growing pains associated with it, but everyone in upper management that I've dealt with has been nothing but helpful.
Pay is average for the industry. Bonuse program is slightly above average.
When properly staffed a GM and or Manager will maintain a healthy work/home balance.
I can see myself with Compass in five years.
