Property Manager (Former Employee) – Sterling, VA – August 27, 2017
Overall it's a standard not-retail-but-retail job. You have customers who yell and swear, and then you have the ones who you want to be actual friends with. It's not a terrible place to work but the pay is ridiculously low for the profits they turn and what they expect.
Property Manager (Current Employee) – Philadelphia County, PA – January 21, 2019
NO ROOM FOR ADVANCEMENT, VERY LOW PAY WITH MANY REQUIREMENTS OF CLEANING , the things they ask you to clean they could pay a vendor to do because it’s a whole other job worth . For example scrub years worth of dirt off of doors . And clean windows on each building from the inside and out, on top of maintaining other parts of an “A” property. Plus taking care of customers. Wanting you to meet your monthly goals. There isn’t enough work hours in a day to complete these task, which is very stressful. & isnt something I was told I would have to do during my training 4 years ago, so they wanna keep expecting a lot from the employees but DO NOT want to pay them more. Adding extra things to clean but they don’t give raises anymore . Or bonuses . Not sure if any other ps district is like this. This company cares very little about their employees they don’t have your best interest at heart . You don’t always get overtime only when they feel like paying over time . Maybe if they’d pay better their employees would LOVE and be motivated to meet all of their requirements.

My experience over the past 6 months of working for Public Storage has been less than satisfactory. In the district I work in you are asked and held responsible for doing very different work from what is advertised and the management does a very poor job of making you feel valued as an employee in the company.
Relief Manager & Retail Associate (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – January 12, 2019
The job itself is not bad. But the company does not respect the employees. I really felt most management personnel did not respect the employees, and this was particularly true with upper management. Pay is low, and very little in benefits.
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Gilbert, AZ – January 7, 2019
I can easily say that this company had one of the smaller and more contained environments I ever worked in. So much that I actually made some pretty good friendships while working there with both management and representatives alike. I also really enjoyed my time working there my first year but the second year was plagued by issues. This was mainly due to the company constantly changing its structure based on the feedback of outside sources. So sales goals were constantly being changed forcing many employees to leave or be terminated. I went from hitting all of my sales goals right out of the gate to not meeting them at all without any real changes in my performance.
A strong work culture in the beginning.
Unrealistic sales goals which were constantly being changed.
Great place to work, but no opportunity for growth

Public Storage is a great company to work for. The job is not hard at all and has its perks as well as downfalls. There is no room for growth/advancement so once you get hired, that is your position for the length of employment. You may get promoted to property manager or trainer, but the compensation is not much at all. Management is fantastic, but once again, the biggest downfall of working for this company is that you cannot advance and grow.

I highly recommend Public Storage to prospective employees, and I miss working there. It was very fast paced, but that allowed for extra opportunities to perform at your best. High praise for successful employees. Very rewarding experience.
Where can I start, the pay sucks, the DM a joke run around like she's doing so much and was not a great leader.
Property Manager (Former Employee) – New Orleans, LA – December 16, 2018
Public Storage is a joke, there's no higher position. Once a property Manager that's all you would ever be here in New Orleans. The new DM, she works 5 days a week and schedule EVERYONE else 7-10 straight to work.. Please don't store there if you don't want bedbug's and homeless around you all day. You are responsible for cleaning the property inside and out, the units, picking up on furniture, mopping up urine constantly, putting up delivery alone majority of the time and dealing with unpleasant customer. If you are a customer or employee Run and I mean Run fast😣😫😕😈
Under paid, taxes your bonus and the SR. DM, DM and RM don't care about you at all.
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Roswell, GA – December 7, 2018
My review on working at Publix storage is it was OK however there’s No working your way up the ladder. Meaning there’s no advancement with working at public storage. I would however recommend the job to someone that is really in need of work and a steady paycheck
This was one of the worst jobs I have ever had. I wouldn't recommend anyone to work here. There is tons of cleaning, working outside in the heat during the summer and in the cold in the winter. The pay sucks too much work not enough pay. Management only cares about themselves. The customers are out of line, hard to deal with, and go above your head to complain to the DM. There was no enjoyable part of this job. You also have to sell merchandise with (no commission). If you do not sell merchandise or get social media reviews you'll end up on a conference call about not selling any merchandise and end up having to role play. Everyone is required to work on the weekends (except the DM's) which is a big inconvenience for those who have children.
Relief Manager (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – December 3, 2018
HORRIBLE company to work for. From corporate all the way down to management is bad. They don’t care about their employees. Turn over rate is very high, the job is cool for a little bit but don’t plan to stay very long. Employees literally do EVERYTHING around the property, Cleaning (restrooms, curb appeal, windows, doors, and stairwells, just to name a few) Maintenace (Changing light bulbs, and fixing broken hasps) Only reason I stayed was for the benefits.
