Corporate is full of great people, not so much on the district level...
Pros: possible free apartment, great corporate office
Cons: underqualified district management, low pay, understaffed
I think that Extra Space is based on great ideas and values. I never met anyone from corporate that I didn't like. The communication from the top was great, and their ideas lead to great things for the company. My issue was with the District Managers that they hire. My experience was with two, one decent, and the other lazy as the day is long. You couldn't get anything done, no questions answered, it was as if we would be better off without him at all. Several of us took our opinions and concerns to the Regional Manager and nothing changed over the course of several months. This DM was vindictive and once you got on his bad side, you were done for. As a faithful and loyal employee of several years, it saddens me that I had to leave a job that I enjoyed because of one individual. I would just say to ESS corporate, make sure your DM's can talk the talk AND walk the walk.
