District Manager at Public Storage
in Tampa, FL

What do you like about working at Public Storage?

"Competitive pay and good benefits. Worked at multiple locations. Camaraderie with other district managers was great."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Ask questions about advancement and turnover, as well as the number of hours you will work per day (including at home in the evenings). It probably won't be a long term employment solution if you are someone who likes to advance and excel within an organization. If you are someone who can be micromanaged and have no desire to climb the corporate ladder, then the company may be a good fit for you."

What don't you like about working at Public Storage?

"Most property managers are managed by employees who are only there to collect a paycheck. The low wages paid restricts the quality of people who apply for property manager positions. There is also a high level of turnover at the district manager level. The company turned over almost 90 of the 204 district managers in 2011. There are also several tedious, yet very time consuming duties that district managers must perform daily. These tasks could easily be reassigned or reduced, and consume several hours each week that should be devoted to training and developing property managers. The company also hesitates to spend money on improving facilities when needed, including things like fixing lights in storage units or dealing with pest infestations. Lastly, the company has property managers pushing renters insurance policies on every customer in a way that is borderline illegal. Some of the things property managers say can only be talked about or recommended by licensed insurance agents."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"I would pay property managers a higher salary, as they are expected to handle more duties than other professions paying the same wage. The higher wage would also benefit the company by increasing the quality of the hiring pool of property managers . I would also, reassign some of the more tedious tasks away from the district managers in order to allow for more time developing and coaching subordinates."
