    Good morning,

    What does everyone recommend for hiring new managers/employees? I didn't know if TXSSA offers something or if we should post on indeed or what. Any help is appreciated!

    I have not had great success hiring for the self storage manager position on Indeed.  I feel that most qualified employees are already employed. I have had success finding people that are not happy or treated well at their current position and offering them the management position.  The small operator manager is a combination of sales, light maintenance, collections, and customer service.   It is tough to find someone that is great at keeping the facility clean & selling services.  I like to pick someone that is great at something and automate the other items.

    We've hired managers from Indeed, but the best managers we've had were either tenants or referrals from current staff.
