    replied to Street Rates
    Just did a comp report for our vegas site as they couldn't put one together themselves *shakes head*, since the last one I did for them a few months back almost every major player around them has dropped their rates, some by 30-40%. Sadly our site there is probably to blame for a lot of it as the owners...

    replied to Worst Job Ever
    Nothing near as bad the ones i'm reading about. The worst physically was a walmart distribution center, did it for 2 days before I said FFFFF that. I was a bingo caller for almost 10 years, as a non smoker I guess that's actually pretty bad physically as well considering all the second hand smoke i've...

  • I always get told by people they feel like interviewing with me is so much better than others they have had and they felt relaxed and comfortable during it. I've done the page long questionnaires, i'm seen the 5 minute in and outs by a former DM where they just cared what you looked like. I no longer...

    Keep them nice and organized in our side office on the table, actually think i'm the only one who reads them though. Although the October issue has been taken for personal keeping after our alien image promo got put in it lol

    replied to Insurance Sales
    Been doing this for 8 years, used 4 different insurance/protection plans in that time. I've always been trained and trained others if someone wants to dig in to the policy details, direct them to the actual company as we are not licensed insurance agents. Of all the companies i've dealt with Storsmart...

    That's Pasadena people for you! When we ran a site in Pasadena it never failed... Oh look it's storming out, street is flooding to the point people are pulling off into our parking lot to wait it out and sure enough some random people will show up wanting to look at units. At least the bright side is...

  • Human errors happen, even to the best of us. If i'm training someone I always give the "measure twice, cut once" spiel when talking about doing anything in the system. Payments, move ins, whatever, it doesn't hurt to take an extra second to look over what you're input to verify. With leases...

    replied to Newbie asking for some advice
    I've thought on this subject for years as my wife and I want to have our own facility at some point as well. Unless we win the lotto which we don't even play the only way that's going to happen is some major investors/financing. With that in mind if we ever got that option we would want to pursue an...

    replied to Sharing on Social Media
    We usually try to share events going on in the area as the regular, reminders about referrals and every now and then a post about units available. We see it as anyone who has us on their social feeds is most likely already a customer so we're not gonna blow them up about specials we may have....

    replied to AVS Mismatches
    Yup, we do this regularly. Most people think the little bit isn't worth it but as you said, it all adds up and if your property is up for sale those pennies/nickles can make huge differences in valuations.

  • Not sure if it's something you'd be interested or anyone else but I just got a call from our owner asking me to put up ads for a manager spot at our Vegas location. 450 units between drive up, a 2 story and parking. Budget truck rentals, more workers though as they usually have 3 workers plus 1 maintenance...

  • Yeah I prefer smaller company now as well, I only consider going back to them as being it was a big company I was still known to the owners, have had dinners with the CEO's etc.. We work for a family owned who stays less than 10 properties for over 30 years now, have had breakfast at their house cooked...

  • Not sure if you've came across the listings but my old company hiring in AZ was US Storage Centers. If you go to their careers page on their site they update pretty regulalry, they usually have listings all over....

  • lol I was talking to my original company about coming back but when I saw the site they were offering and the fact it was only 1 position versus 1 for each of us in NE Phoenix I lost interest. I don't enjoy the thought of my residence door/cars being outside the gate in a parking lot shared by a gas...

    replied to Zombie units?
    Done this exact thing with a site takeover in TN, had the on site manager with me, camera on a tripod rolling from the time before we cut the lock, while I was carefully looking through items for anything to point us in a direction on who to contact. Thankfully on that one I found contact info pretty...

    Assuming we stay with this company at sooooome point I need to fly back to Houston, load up a 26' truck and move my belongings out of storage their to our current residence. Only a 28 hour drive with this current location, nice way to spend some time away from work, right?

    replied to Google - Project Beacon
    We have one I found in a drawer when I took this site over in June, I had to look it up to see what it even was. Put it up, rather or not it's done anything, who knows. We do get random reviews from people who have never even been here about once or twice a month though, almost like they must of been...

    Welcome to the forum Bubba! Sounds like you already have an idea of the issues and are tackling them. Best of luck to the wife and you! My wife and I always get told we should just get our own to run instead of making rich people richer....
