I need HELP!!!
Can anyone PLEASE point me in the right direction? I've been trying to get a on-site storage position, but haave not had any bites. So can anyone give me any pointers or lead me in the right direction on getting some education or training in the storage industry. I have sales, management, and dealing with the public experience. I would appreciate any advice....

you may want to consider the upcoming ISS trade show in DC or other large-scale events as manager training is often a topic. You don't list where you live, or at least I don't see one, but your state self storage association would also be a good place to turn.
On a more simple level, may be worthwhile to go the direct route - stop at a series of locations and check the level of interest. Even if your first couple of stops have no openings, chances are they will know if anyone else does.

I would suggest checking out the ISS online Qualified Storage Manager program under the ISS's Self Storage Training Institute.
There are a number of great courses that you take from your desk top. Convenient and affordable and something to add to your resume. Coming to a national or state meeting is another great suggestion. You can find a link to your state's self storage association in the ISS Buyer's Guide. Click on the ISS Magazine link at the top of this page - a new window opens and click on Buyer's Guide. Listing of all Assocaitions can be found.
Best of luck,

Yes, WHERE are you? We actually prefer to hire folks at our facilities that have NO storage experience. This way we can train them to do things the way we do them :-)
We also have another facility in the Houston TX area.
