A quiet yet reliable environment to work in with good customer service
Maintenance Person (Former Employee) – Burlington, ON – 24 March 2017
When I worked at Access Storage, I worked as Maintenance. I replaced light bulbs, cleaned the floors and units of junk / dirt, and helped clear up the office with a vacuum cleaner. The job was quite nice as it was usually only three people working there at a time and as Maintenance you are usually alone at the end of the shift since the Office closes early. This means that if anyone has any customer related needs they will usually go to you and so I talked to a lot of the people renting storage units there. It was mostly a isolated work place, but if you are good at cleaning and don't mind silence, it is quite a neat job.
Silent workplace, good teammates within workplace
Sometimes not enough hours to complete all work neccessary

Worst place I have ever worked for. No support from management. Terrible pay with no pay increases. Nobody lasts long. If they do they get walked all over. Even managers. You will become janitor on top of all other responsibilities. Mice everywhere and no one cares. Clients storage all eaten and no support from access for them and their loss. The only good part of the job was the other amazing SSE's I worked with.
Storage Solutions Expert (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 9 October 2018
Have been with the company over a year now, and since i have been with Access Storage I have seen the following: - staff trainer retired, so staff no longer receive appropriate training for the many demands of the job - no protocol in place to help deal with abusive clients - when long time staff have asked for fair wage increases they are denied or given .50/ hr raise - A VP who says if you dont like sales get another job - A company that will spend BILLIONS to sponsor the CFL and other sports teams, and yet will not turn around and invest that in happy staff. - VERY low staff retention.

It's a great Canadian company. People here work hard, play hard and eat hard...we have a lot of potluck's ! It’s such a fun and pleasant place to work. Access, Depotium, SFYL, and Sentinel are great places to store your items too.
Site Manager (Former Employee) – AB – 16 January 2017
A company that takes no accountability and provides very little support for its staff. Rather than accommodating employees to maybe have some employee retention, I found their attitude was "take it or leave it". Not even an attempt to try to accommodate! Needless to say I left and will be forever grateful to them for pushing me to pursue a better career company.
Site Manager (Former Employee) – Ontario – 29 September 2016
This company has to be one of the worst companies I have ever worked for. They over work and under pay you. The pay and the bonus structure is a joke. They expect you to do jobs that you weren't even hired for, and to do it with a smile. No room for growth at all, and if you do become manager well there's really no real training. As a manager don't expect a life because if there is an issue with the site you are down there at all hours. Turn over rate for employees is high, where even the customers notice.The fees for clients are horrible but it's another way to make a buck. There is no support from upper management at all. I stayed way too long at this company...
General Labourer (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 11 March 2015
A typical day at work started with starting at 7:30 AM. We did alot of cutting grass, picking up garbage, planting gardens during the summer. And we would do that until 4 PM. During the winter we would shovel snow from the sidewalks and work inside building and removing walls.
Interviewer (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 16 September 2014
This place was good in the beginning but it began to deteriorate in the end before I left. My employers and co-workers were great but this job was some what sporadic in nature. We did surveys for various corporations and it was a little monotonous in nature. You had to deal with some very nasty people on the phone. And there was not much in the way of expanding yourself in the business. It is fine if you need something to occupy yourself but as a job to pay the bills and such, no.
