Here at A-1 Self Storage, we know our success is due to our wonderful team. The care they give our customers is unparalleled and we want to highlight their milestones along the way. Below is an interview with team member Joselin Sanchez, who is celebrating her first anniversary with A-1 Self Storage.
You can meet Joselin at A-1 Self Storage off of Monterey Highway in San Jose, California.
Colby: Take me back a year to when you first applied. What was it about A-1 Self Storage that made you want to apply for the job?
Joselin: I was trying to find something better than where I was at the moment. A-1 Self Storage offered 40 hours a week plus benefits, so it was a great opportunity.
Colby: What advice would you give someone if they were applying for a job today? What have you learned in the last year that you could share with them?
Joselin: I’ve learned how to deal with certain customers and figuring out their situations and why they need storage. Even if you don’t have experience, just jump in and get in the flow. Don’t be nervous if you don’t have any experience.
Colby: Is this your first time in the self storage industry?
Joselin: Yes it is.
Colby: Do you have any stories you like to share if people ask you what it’s like to work in this industry?
Joselin: There’s always something going on. Tenants here always keep things interesting. There are some good things that happen, and some crazy things that happen, but it definitely is never boring!
Colby: Right on. Tell me a little about yourself. What are your hobbies? What keeps you busy when you aren’t at work?
Joselin: I spend a lot of time with my family. I have a son, so one of my favorite things to do during the summer is go camping.
Colby: Oh cool! Is there a favorite spot where you like to go camping?
Joselin: Right now my favorite spot is Hollister Hills. That’s where you can take ATVs and dirt bikes.
Colby: Could you give me restaurant recommendation? Where would you go to celebrate an anniversary.
Joselin: Chili’s is definitely my favorite.
Colby: Is there anybody you’d like to give a shout out to that’s helped you along in your first year at A-1 Self Storage?
Joselin: Alona Gutierrez. She was the manager at this location, but now she’s working for A-1 Self Storage in San Diego. She taught me everything I know today and I really appreciate her for that.
