    I have been working at Public Storage full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The pay is pretty competitive. With offices open 7 days a week, schedules can be flexible and 9:30am-6pm allows you to get home at a reasonable time. This is a good job for someone who can work independently with a daily and monthly routine. There is some room for growth within the company as well. Incentive programs have been created to meet monthly goals and managers can be contacted directly for any issues that may come up.

    Cons

    Sometimes, multiple "small" tasks can get time consuming, which may lead to a busy day if you're by yourself. This is a customer service based job with customers often in a low point in their lives, this can require a strong sense of patience.

    I have been working at Public Storage full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefits to the company are great start after 60 days of employment.

    Cons

    The company may say they are with you but when you are having issues with either property customers or other employees. They take there sweet time to get things fixed. Especially if your property isnt one of the big income ones or meeting metrics. Numbers seems to be all the corporate side cares about. Those who are local with you will help best to what corporate will allow. Tland they do not hire within so if you apply as a field employee then you are stuck there. If you try and go corporate side good luck to you.

    Pros

    The Pros about working for public storage. 1. As a property manager, you don't have more than 2 bosses. Your main boss is your DM. (district manager) 2. You are able to work at your own pace, but with time limits, and that's were time management comes in. 3. If you need help, other PM's there always a phone call away.

    Cons

    Haven't found a con yet!
