HAPPY 1-YEAR ANNIVERSARY TO GARY GARCIA

Here at StaxUP Storage, we know our success is due to our wonderful team. The care they give our renters is unparalleled and we want to highlight their milestones along the way. Below is an interview with San Diego team member Gary Garcia who is celebrating his 1-year anniversary with StaxUP Storage this week. All interviews are performed by Peter Soto.

Gary is the Manager at StaxUP Storage – Chula Vista.

Peter: How did you get started in self storage?

Gary garcia, employee of the month for december 2016

Gary Garcia, Employee of the Month for December 2016

Gary: I’m going to be honest with you. I was just looking for a job. At the time I didn’t have transportation, so I was looking for something local. I’ve always been interested in property management. In fact, I was looking for something more along the lines of residential management, like apartments. When I was going through job searching on craigslist I came across one that was local, it was in Chula Vista, started off with decent pay and it was basically for maintenance. Although I wanted to become a manager eventually or assistant manager, what I knew how to do was maintenance. That was my foot in the door, so I went in and applied for it, two, three months later I got the call and I’ve been here ever since.

Peter: That’s great. You worked your way into management now.

Gary: Yeah, I’m the maintenance and assistant manager, so I do both office work and the maintenance. When I first started, they told me I would be doing about 20% office work and 80% maintenance and that kind of scared me at first, because I wasn’t really computer literate, but now that’s where I prefer to be. I love interacting with the customers. I love the whole aspect of the office, so it’s been pretty fun.

Peter: So you’d say StaxUp took the time to set you up with computer and back office skills you didn’t have before?

Gary: Yeah, they’re 100% responsible for where I’m at today as far as my level and where I’m headed. I give them 100% of the credit for that.

Peter: Awesome. I’ve done a number of these interviews now and something that I hear all the time is that Strat Prop really takes time to invest in their team, but they also give them a lot of independence. Is that similar to what you’ve experienced?

Gary: Oh, yeah. I have my fair share of independence. They let you go on your own and use what you’ve learned to the best of your abilities, which gives you trust and when you get that trust it builds your confidence. I want to make sure I do the best I can in order to show them that I’m capable. They gave me everything I need to do the job I’m doing. Now sometimes I work alone. I have no problems. I’m not worried that I’m going to do something wrong or come across a situation I can’t handle. That was something they did during our training.

Peter: So after a year do you have any stories or moments that stick out in your memory?

Gary: I’m not sure about stories. I just know that with both of my team members, it’s always full of laughs and it’s always a great time. The things that stand out the most are almost all customer related. There have been so many times, so many moments of satisfaction I get from helping somebody or calling somebody by their name as they walk in and making them feel a part of something. Those are my rewards.

Peter: Oh yeah, just doing the right thing.

Gary: Yeah, it’s integrity, right? That’s one of the things, being able to apply integrity in my position and going full out for the customer makes my experience here all the better.

Peter: Self storage seems so boring on the outside, but when you hear things like that you can see a lot of humanity in it.

Gary: You’re interacting with so many people. Some are just here to store personal belongings for a short period of time, but everyone is storing their personal belongings and they have a story behind it. You know, some of them are not so great. Some are moving on to something better and they just need something right now until they get into a bigger house. Or some people who have just lost everything. Just being able to sit there and talk to them and comfort them and try to make their experience the best possible under the circumstances. It’s great. Something I’ve noticed in self storage is that you have an opportunity to do that every single day.

Peter: You really meet all types of people in the self storage industry. So, you don’t spend all of your time at the self storage facility. Who are you when you aren’t at work?

Gary: At this point I’m just a father. I go out there and do everything I can, even on my days off. Just yesterday was my one weekend day off and I wanted to relax and do laundry, so my kids have laundry for the week and instead my cousin is here from out of town visiting my grandma. I guess they went into her trailer and saw it leaking and found some mildew, so they ended up tearing down the whole roof. The walls were all messed up, so they called for my help, so I went over there and knocked all the walls out. Now it’s all open and exposed. Everything’s gone. Then yesterday we put the whole thing up in one day.

Peter: Wow!

Gary: Yep. We put the walls up, all the joints all the rafters, side paneling, ceiling. So then it was just up to my cousin to put the roofing and drywall in. We got it all done it one day. It was cool. It’s one of those things. I love the smell of cut wood. Just being able to do something for somebody is it’s own reward. I didn’t expect to get paid for it. I just happened to be available and I knew what I was doing, so it was fun. Other than that, I used to draw. I don’t really get into that anymore. At this point I am just focusing on my job and seeing where I can go with this. I think my biggest and best hobby and pastime and everything all together is just being a great father to my two kids now and just being able to provide for them. That’s what it’s all about for me.

Peter: What are your kids’ names?

Gary: I have a son that’s named Gary as well. He’s 13 years old, just turned 13, so I got a little teenager on my hands. Then I have my daughter, Gabriella, Gabby, she just turned nine. She’s like my little heart beat as well. My little daddy’s girl. It’s not easy being a single parent, but at the end of the day it’s worth it.

Peter: That’s a huge job.

Gary: Yeah, that’s why I have gratitude toward Strat Prop, because they’ve actually given me the skills , tools and essentials to help provide for them.

Peter: That’s heartwarming. So do you live in the Chula Vista area?

Gary: It’s kind of funny, because I’ve been here my whole life. I live right off of Hilltop and Palomar. I’ve lived down this road for 30+ years, so I know everything here. I’m very familiar with this whole area, because I was born and raised here in Chula Vista. That’s one of the main things that attracted me to this property, that it is in Chula Vista. Right now I have joint custody of my daughter and she’s a big part of my life, so I have to be within this area in order to maintain that, so this is perfect. I’ve been living here for 43 years in Chula Vista, so it’s pretty convenient for me.

Peter: I’ve only been in that area a couple times. As someone who knows everything around there, do you have any suggestions for things I can do it Chula Vista next time I visit?

Gary: Depends on when you come down. If you come down during the summer time, let’s say you come down in May, from the end of May to September, you could always check out the water park right here on Main Street that was once owned by Knott’s Berry Farms, but now it’s owned by Sea World. It’s called Aquatica and it’s maybe a mile and a half from here. It’s a nice summer spot. Nice water slides. It’s a pretty nice place to go. Other than that, it just depends on your tastes. There’s good pizza at La Bella’s, good Mexican food at Hermano’s. There’s a few things to do around here. But, like I said, I’m more of a home body. There’s the AMC right here off of Palm. That’s my favorite one. Out of all of the theaters in the area, this one is the cheapest for some reason. Of course, the one in Chula Vista mall has recliners and you get to reserve your seat, so that’s kind of good too.

Peter: Those were actually all of the questions I had prepared. Is there anyone at the company you would like to give a shout-out at StaxUp or the home office?

Gary: Anna and Yesenia at Chula Vista, Monique and the crew over at San Ysidro, Adam and the team members at Ballpark, and, of course, everyone at the home office at Strat Prop!

STAXUP STORAGE IN CHULA VISTA RAISES DONATIONS FOR LOCAL ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

StaxUp Storage in Chula Vista raised more than $250 worth of school supplies for students at Park Village Head Start! Thanks to everyone who donated!

“It’s a low income school, so they don’t get help from the government and the little that they do get, it’s not enough,” said StaxUP Storage Property Manager Yesenia Wilhoite. “The minute Anna and I showed up in there, the kids were ecstatic. They were already so excited. It honestly was really beautiful to see, because for us, we often don’t get to see the small things. Seeing that was just really beautiful.”

SELF STORAGE MILESTONE: HAPPY 2-YEAR ANNIVERSARY TO GARY GARCIA

Here at StaxUP Storage, we know our success is due to our wonderful team. The care they give our renters is unparalleled and we want to highlight their milestones along the way. Below is an interview with Chula Vista, CA team member Gary Garcia, who is celebrating his 2-year anniversary with StaxUP Storage.

Gary garcia 2 year anniversary

Gary Garcia is the manager at StaxUP Storage in Chula Vista, CA.

You can ask Gary for self storage help at StaxUP Storage in Chula Vista, CA.

Colby: What year anniversary are you celebrating?

Gary: This is my second year, so I’m just a baby in the company.

Colby: Take me back two years ago when you first applied, what was it about the company that stood out to you that made you want to work for them in the first place?

Gary: To be honest, I was just basically looking for a job at the time, I was just looking for something that was local and was in my trade range which was maintenance. But it wasn’t until after I met Julie and Don that I actually found out what kind of company I was getting myself into. And I realized that for me it was a great company, because they are going to give me opportunities that are kind of rare, you know?

Colby: For sure, for sure. So you’ve been there a couple of years now, what’s the biggest thing that you’ve learned about the industry since you’ve joined the company?

Gary: The diversity. There are so many different aspects to the self storage industry. Really we are here for the customers and to make their transition a pleasant one. It is a business, but we are also in the business of helping customers with what they are going through.


“Gary is super quick to catch on to software and procedures. He builds relationships really well with his customers. When we hired him for maintenance, it became apparent very quickly that he would be great in a customer-facing role. He runs a busy, tough property, but he does it in a cheerful, happy way. He really strives to learn more each day.”

Julie Merry, StaxUP Brand Vice President


Colby: Do you have a favorite story over the last year that really stands out that’s worth a retell?

Gary: I am not sure if I have a story but, we get to help the homeless and help those in need around Christmas and Thanksgiving. Sometimes just being a part of their story makes it a better story for myself.

Colby: Cool. Well, outside of self storage, what’s your favorite thing to do when you’re not at work?

Gary: I really, really enjoy annoying my kids! That’s what I really enjoy, that’s my hobby now. I have two kids. I have a teenage son and a preteen daughter. So just joking around with them; that’s my hobby now.

Colby: What’s your favorite place to eat?

Gary: Well I don’t really go out, so I guess my own kitchen is my favorite.

Colby: Oh okay, so what’s your favorite dish to make?

Gary: Oh that’s kind of hard. This morning I made egg white omelets and that turned out pretty good. I make a pretty good chicken enchilada casserole and Puerto Rican rice. Sometimes what I whip up I don’t even name so…

Colby: Right on right on, just good combinations?

Gary: Yeah, you know, a pinch of this, and a shake of that, and see what comes out. I enjoy cooking.


“It’s really nice seeing someone grow, especially someone like Gary. His hunger for knowledge is something that stands out to me. He’s so great at customer service. He has a way with people that makes them feel open and makes them laugh. Our customers always comment on how he makes the facility feel homey.”

Yesenia Wilhoite, Manager at StaxUP Storage on Hill Street


Colby: What’s your favorite thing to do in town? Is there a place you and the kids like to go hang out?

Gary: There’s a place in town called Aquatica. We’ve been going there for the past three or four years now and the kids look forward to it. When we started going it was always me and the kids and a bunch of different rides, but as the kids get older I don’t go to all the rides with them. My son always wants to go with his friends. I guess they have more fun with friends. But it does allow me to sit under the canape and do some reading. Now I am more of a homebody, I enjoy the simpler things, you know? Like Netflix.

Colby: Is there anyone you would like to give a shout out in celebration of year two?

Gary: Yeah, first and foremost, Don and Julie for giving me the opportunity to come on to the team, without them I don’t think I would be where I am now. And I do really appreciate their patience and guidance and understanding. My former manager Yesenia, I want to thank her for all she has done for me. My assistant manager is great. She is beyond great, and I really appreciate her so much. Ana of course deserves one. Monique, our district manager, has shown me encouragement. She has taught me so much and really goes beyond. To our new member Daniel for adapting really quick and being a great help to us. Pretty much the entire staff!

STAXUP STORAGE IN CHULA VISTA GOES BIG ON EASTER: CELEBRATING WITH TWO GIVEAWAYS

With Easter not far away, we are excited to announce that our facility manager, Gary Garcia, is celebrating Easter this year with two “Easter Basket” giveaways! The purpose of this giveaway is to give back to the community and show all of our customers our appreciation. You can sign up for the even on our facebook page or enter at the StaxUP Storage facility in Chula Vista.

“We are basically a family here at StaxUP, so we also want them to feel at home and feel welcome,” Gary said.

The baskets, along with their individual self storage giveaways, will also be filled to the brim with Easter-candy favorites, flavored cider, and other treats!

 
 

Gary’s idea to use Easter as a way to bring his tenants closer together comes from his own experience celebrating the holiday with his family. He says he plans on going to El Shaddai Church of God with his with his parents and children, then enjoying Easter dinner with them. Gary is also looking forward to spending Easter in this particular church since it holds a special meaning for his family.

“My dad actually helped build this church when I was a child,” Gary said. “It’s an all family member’s kind of church, and I think going there with the family will make my mom really happy,” he said.

It is clear that Gary holds a strong bond with his family; Especially with his mother. He gives his mother credit for his decorating flair and giving spirit.

“She was always a great decorator and big on giving things away. Creating baskets for my children’s teachers, and for my teachers when I was little” he said, “Now that I’m the manager I plan on using every holiday as a chance to be giving back to our community.”

Keep your eyes open for more exciting events and giveaways in the coming months! Until then, check out the details on the  Easter Basket Giveaway:

  • Our first basket is for new tenants! All new move-ins from March 1st through March 26 are eligible and will be entered in a drawing that will be chosen at the closing of March 26th.
  • The second basket will be for a current tenant that paid this month’s rent on time (All those who paid on time will be eligible and will be entered in a drawing to be conducted on March 26th ). Both winners will be contacted during the week leading up to Easter weekend and may pick up their baskets at that time.

Happy Easter from our StaxUP family to yours!
