- Westboro Self Storage13.Nov 2015
I don't feel the owners were fair at all, they would tell you one thing and then do just the opposite behind your back.
Support from management
You're on your own with little to no help from owners.
Other employees pass the buck and don't communicate well.
Freedom to work independently
I felt there was a complete lack of autonomy at work between staff.
There was a lack of communication due to the way the owners would lead you to believe one thing and do something different.
I felt bad being promised a change of schedule 2 times, then a new friend hire would come on and take the days I was promised.
Attitude towards older colleagues
I was the longest serving hire and still being passed over for new days.
There is no opportunity for advancement cause I rented more units on a daily basis and it still got me no consideration for change.
Overall compensation for your work
You are paid on time, once a month. there is no incentives for # of rentals and no benefits.
Office / Work Environment
I felt the working conditions were fine, the environment was in good shape
This was a little bit of a problem because one of the owners was such a hot head.
The deal is when it's your days to work you need to be there no questions asked, because you are the only staff working on your shift.
We try to remain positive even though the work situation is not always a good one.
I had a medical issue happen to me and they just let me go with no reason.
No they are not set up for anything like that they would fire you if that was your situation.
Not really cause in the winter it can be pretty treacherous, I had a couple of falls on the ice.
Yes, I had a good feeling if I rented a few units and managed to complete all my work.
Inclusive / Diverse
Yes the idea is to have no vacancies, that is the business goal.
Suggestions for improvement
- They need to learn how to treat people with dignity and respect. They need to do what they say they are going to do, and need to be fair to all there employees!
What I like about the company
At the beginning I really enjoyed working there, they seemed to be a good group of people working there.
What I dislike about the company
After working there for a while I began to see how unfairly treated I was beginning to get. Right up till I had my seizure and they let me go cause of that.
