    Pros

    Hours. Good home life, if you aren't expected to go to constant after hours calls

    Cons

    Favoritism and nepotism is how things are run. The corporate level does not care about the employees at the store level and keep cutting and cutting. How about cut at the corporate level, instead of making up positions. DM's don't manage and let DTL's run the show. This is not how it should be. Very sad to what this company has turned into. No way to advice, unless your male.

    Advice to Management

    Take a closer look into the District level rolls and stop showing favoritism. Each area acts like they are correct and there is never a united front.

    I worked at Extra Space Storage full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Sundays Off Insurance Benefits Paid Holidays and PTO

    Cons

    Favoritism No Recognition for hard working employees DM and DTLs are not professional Employees get away with not doing their job or calling in 5 times in one month Secret shoppers who know nothing Lots of drama Micro Management

    Advice to Management

    My advice is to treat your experienced and tenured employees better. Also, be more specific on the DMs and DTLs you hire because they are super unprofessional and disrespectful. And hold the employees who can’t even do their daily job accountable. I could go on about all the advice I have for management.
