Working within the Storage industry is easy, yet can be challenging at times. However it is very fun and you learn something new everyday. Simply Self Storage has been a great company to work for so far.

Store Manager (Current Employee) –  Altamonte Springs, FLJune 30, 2015
I am responsible for opening & closing the store each day. I make bank deposits & clean. The most enjoyable part of the job would be meeting new people & to hear their stories. The hardest part of the job would be auctions.

Great company to start a career off in.
Property Manager and District Training Specialist (Current Employee) –  Columbus, GAMarch 24, 2015
I have learned a lot from this company and have grown in my career. The employee's are wonderful and the customers and tenants are also wonderful. The company has a good core value. They have good benefits as well. If you are looking for a job that does not require you to just sit at a desk this is the place to be. It allows you to learn a wide variety of useful techniques behind the desk as well as outside on the property. Great place to start a career.

Fun and interesting place to work
Property Manager (Current Employee) –  Brighton, MAMarch 3, 2015
Day starts with doing a daily walk through of the property then a bank run. Then I did calls to catch up on daily work and collections. My coworkers were spread out but we functioned as a good team. Management was very fair and able to help with major issues. Meet a lot of interesting people. Hardest part is selling a person's unit if they do not pay.
Pros
free apartment, good pay, easy going workplace
Cons
work alone for the most part

Working at this place broadened my mind & customer service skills... loved the time 1/2, Holiday, & overtime pay.
Assistant Manager/Floater (Former Employee) –  South Chicago Heights, ILAugust 28, 2014
A typical day @ this job was mostly calling your inquirers, customers that's behind on rent, & keeping accounts updated in system. I've learned how to use the computer much better while working this job due to weekly reports that had to be done, emailing with attachments, faxing, & processing payment in the system. Had great coworkers. They were very helpful to me. The hardest part of this job was saleing moving supplies & equipment due to free boxes that the grocery stores give to you for free & the dollar stores that sale other supplies for a cheaper price, but what's a job with out challenge, but there was some enjoyable parts of the job & that was getting the lease signed & the sale.
Pros
lunch
Cons
sales

No training or support
PROPERTY MANAGER (Former Employee) –  RAYTOWN, MOFebruary 18, 2014
Very high expectations from a company that doesn't even provide a handbook to their employees.... Management only cares about increasing storage prices on already existing and long time tenants. Not to mention that the area is a suburb that is not flourishing in extreme wealth!!! So they punish their customers with inflation and they push their employees to SELL SELL with no training and co-workers that get out the good silverware to stab you in the back
Pros
nada...maybe getting fresh air outside
Cons
coworkers, management, working hard and being told that its not right and not hard enough

Property Manager (Former Employee) –  Troy, MIMarch 25, 2013
This is a results driven company. There are some good things, but even more bad things about this company. Compensation is low and benefits offered are not a selling point for employment. As a full time manager, you are almost guaranteed 40 hours per week which is nice. Upper management is friendly and respectful.
Pros
steady schedule and project style workload
Cons
compensation.
