Nice place to work if strong bodied
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Bear, DE – February 18, 2016
The day would begin with pulling up reports and doing daily deposits and general office duties. Customers would come into the storefront for information and tours of the storage areas. Interaction with them was enjoyable. My duties did require physical maintenance work which became too strenuous on my body. My co-workers were pleasant and the Lead Manager was easy to work with. Using my teaching abilities, I trained 4 employees for Lead Management positions, opting out of that position myself due to the full-time hours required. I learned to use Excel, host auctions, and participate in weekly marketing activities. I did well with the marketing, however, I don’t enjoy trying to talk someone into something they don’t want. There were times when I was called off duty late at night for a “disturbance” on the property and had to go there to settle it. This too was not my favorite thing to do. I truly enjoyed running errands and I would say my favorite part was signing up a new customer because I’m a “people-person” and enjoy the professional interaction of meeting needs and making someone feel at ease. If it weren’t for the physical duties of general office cleaning - including windows and mopping storefront floor, cleaning out and mopping storage units, broom sweeping long hallways in the storage buildings, picking up trash on the property, shoveling snow, and working alone on the property – especially after dark, I’d still be there.
