PS is not employee friendly
Store Manager, District Trainer (Former Employee) – Daly City, CA – September 7, 2015
I've worked for PS twice. The first time was because they bought the storage company I worked for and I was absorbed by the company. The second time, I really needed a job and had no other option at the time. Public Storage is a multi-billion dollar company that pays their employees the bare minimum so they can continue to line the pockets of the men in suits. The only growth potential is to District Trainer. You will NEVER be a district manager or anything higher. They only hire college graduates who have never worked storage in their lives, so they have no clue what it's like to work in a rental office. They have unrealistic expectations of how the offices should operate and punish you for not doing your job according to their plan. You are also not allowed to have a brain. I was fired for questioning why things were done. You don't do that at PS or they will dig and find the most miniscule reason to get rid of you. They just want you to do as your told. Sorry, but that's not me.
I will say that my coworkers were some of the most amazing people. I am still friends with several of them, since having left the company over 5 years ago.
Really, working for PS is easy money (not much, but enough), but if you want any kind of advancement or have a strong personality, you will not like working here.
