Happy 1-Year Anniversary to Tony Coronado
Here at StaxUP Storage and Ballpark Self 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 Antonio team member Tony Coronado who is celebrating his 1-year anniversary with Ballpark Self Storage this week. All interviews are performed by Peter Soto.
Tony Coronado is an assistant manager at Ballpark Self Storage.
Peter: Your one-year anniversary is coming up! Self storage is a pretty interesting business. How did you get into it?
Tony: It is, it is. Well, I was working at a Japanese restaurant and the opportunity came up through somebody at SPMI and I sent in my resume, got an interview with Julie and it just went from there. Once I had the interview I grabbed on and didn’t let go. I came from working in restaurants for about ten years and was looking for something more steady, more reliable, something different and this was exactly what I was looking for.
Peter: Yeah, that’s great. Restaurant life can be kind of hectic. Were you working in the kitchen or what were you doing?
Tony: No, I always worked in the front of house. It just got too draining. It wears you out big time.
Peter: Self storage is a lot different, right?
Tony: Oh yeah. Sometimes there are a million things to do and sometimes you can work at your own pace.
Peter: Do you have any memorable moments or good stories from the past year?
Tony: Yeah, probably because we are in such a unique facility. A lot of them I probably wouldn’t be able to share, but one would be when we had the school drive last year. A tenant brought someone into the facility who too some money out of one of the jars. Using the camera footage, we were able to figure out who it was. Since we didn’t know exactly how much they took, so we ended up having them pay back what they took plus some. We were able to get a good amount of supplies that year for the school. That was probably the most interesting thing that had a good turn out.
Peter: Do you live in the San Diego area?
Tony: Yeah, I live about 10 minutes away.
Peter: Have you lived there long?
Tony: Almost my whole life. It’s hard to move away from here.
Peter: Oh yeah. The weather is so nice.
Tony: Yeah, it’s beautiful.
Peter: Sounds like you’re a local. What’s something I need to do the next time I am in San Diego?
Tony: Definitely hit up a brewery if you’re into beer, because we’re pretty spoiled with it down here. There are a lot of cool places. Something I like doing each summer is going to La Jolla. You just have to try everything out. There’s a lot to do out here. If you look around, you’ll find something cool.
Peter: What’s your favorite brewery down there?
Tony: I’d say for sure Stone, but there’s too many to name. Groundswell, which Adam’s going to tonight. That’s a good one. There’s some small ones too. Pizzaport is always good. Yeah, there are just too many to name.
Peter: For sure. Do you have any hobbies outside of work?
Tony: Yeah, I like playing and following soccer, specifically English soccer. I like playing video games and building computers.
Peter: Did you build your current computer?
Tony: Yeah, I had a friend help me. We bought the parts online and he put it together. After that I was able to tear it down and put it back together myself, cleaning it and whatnot. I helped my wife’s brother finish his case. It’s something that’s grabbed my interest lately.
Peter: It’s always easier to learn that type of thing with someone who knows what they’re doing, so you don’t make a mistake that costs you a lot of money.
Tony: Haha, yeah. Definitely.
Peter: Do you have any favorite restaurants in San Diego?
Tony: Yeah, my favorite’s going to be Turf Supper Club or Turf Club. It’s like steak, chicken, stuff like that, but you grill it yourself. It’s kind of like a dive bar. It looks a little bit older, but it’s a cool little place. Usually it’s our Valentine’s Day tradition. We went with Adam last February and the food’s just killer. You can cook the steak how you want. They have good beer too. Also, Slater’s is really good, Sword and Swine. There’s a lot of good ones around here.
Peter: Those were all of the questions I had prepared. Would you like to give anyone in the company a shout out?
Tony: Oh, shoot, let me think real quick. It’s probably just going to have to be Julie. I think that’s an easy one. She actually took me from my first interview at the home office back to my restaurant job, so I could get to my opening shift on time. That’s when I got hooked and realized what kind of company it was. We started off on a great foot. I was hooked.
SELF STORAGE MILESTONE: HAPPY 2-YEAR ANNIVERSARY TO TONY CORONADO!
Here at StaxUP, 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 team member Tony Coronado, who is celebrating his 2-year anniversary with StaxUP.
You can meet Tony at Ballpark Self Storage in San Diego, California.
Colby: What year anniversary are you celebrating?
Tony: It is my second year anniversary.
Colby: What made you apply to the StaxUP in the first place, what stood out to you?
Tony: I was working in retail and restaurants, and I was just looking for something a little more steady and for a change of pace. This was the exact change that I needed.
Colby: So what’s the biggest difference between year one and year two?
Tony: Year two has been pretty good. I learned a lot the first year, so the second year I was able to take on a lot more. When Adam went over to units, I was able to take over the facility and grow a lot more.
“Working with Tony was great. StaxUP picks great people. He’s coachable. He’s quick to adapt. He has matured and actually takes ownership and runs the business the right way management-wise. He’s grown as a property manager so much. He’s a fun guy to work with and he does what it takes to get the job done. He took a lot of stress off of me when we worked together.”
Adam Martin, UNITS San Diego Team Lead
Colby: What would you say is your favorite story of the last year in working there?
Tony: Well, let’s just say this is an interesting facility. We get a lot of characters walking around outside.
Colby: What are some of your favorite hobbies when you aren’t at work?
Tony: I enjoy video games, and watching a lot of soccer. I also like to try out the different breweries in town. My favorite brewery right now is probably Border X Brewery.
Colby: What kind of gaming are you into?
Tony: I play mostly PC games but I play Playstation from time to time
Colby: I actually got a PS3 a few weeks ago. I am way behind.
Tony: You got time to catch up. We will build you a PC eventually.
Colby: So for year two is there anybody you would like to give a shout out to for helping you along the way?
Tony: The person who sticks out for me is Adam for guiding and helping me grow as a team member.
SELF STORAGE MILESTONE: HAPPY 1-YEAR ANNIVERSARY TO ALEJANDRA BRAVO
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 team member Alejandra Bravo, who is celebrating her 1-year anniversary with StaxUP Storage.
You can meet Alejandra at Ballpark Self Storage in San Diego, California.
Peter: How did you learn about Ballpark Storage?
Alejandra: I started because my sister actually worked for the company as well. She’s a manager at San Ysidro, Laura Castillon. She let me know that the position was opening and she talked to me about the company. I liked what the company gave to their employees and how they were treating them so I took an application, and that’s how I started. Thanks to my sister!
Peter: That’s a pretty good “in” to have! What’s it been like now that you’ve been in it for a year? Was it as good as she made it sound?
Alejandra: It is. We have different properties and in the beginning, when I started it was very calm because I was at the calmer facilities like Alpine and El Cajon. Then once I came to Ballpark it got a little bit more interesting because there were more people as well as different characters. My sister’s facility is crazier than Ballpark. I went there one day and it was a lot more crazy than here at Ballpark, so I’m surprised how she’s able to manage that place every day!
Peter: Yeah it’s a high traffic facility! So you’re finding it good at Ballpark? It’s not too crazy compared to San Ysidro?
Alejandra: Well, it has its crazy moments, but everything is going well. Ballpark is more paced than other facilities I visited.
Peter: Has it turned out to be what you thought it would be before you took the job, or has anything about it sort of surprised you?
Alejandra: It was a little bit more challenging in the beginning just because I felt like it was a new language for me to learn. Talking about units and things like that, which I wasn’t ready for right in the beginning. Over time I’ve gotten comfortable talking about units and referencing prices. It was a little more challenging than I thought it was going to be, but I think I was able to find my own ways around learning things and making it my own throughout the year that I’ve been here.
“It has been a pleasure having Ally on the Ballpark team. She adapted quickly and has found her role here, and I am glad to be working with her. Thanks for everything Ally!”
Tony Coronado, Ballpark Self Storage Manager
Peter: That’s great. So if someone was thinking about applying for a job here, what advice would you give to them?
Alejandra: I would give them the advice that they have to be open to meeting a lot of different kinds of people. Because sometimes you will have your nice ones, and then you will have people that are just not in the right mood to be dealing with these kinds of things. Usually, storage comes with people who are moving, so you will get people who are frustrated. Just be open and accept that you may not always get the smile, and then don’t take it to heart.
Peter: For sure. I think you make a really good point because you do have to deal with a lot of different people in self storage. You are dealing with people at a time that may be really stressful for them. So I think you’re right on.
Alejandra: Yeah because sometimes people are just moving, which can be stressful for them. The best thing I can do is to help them get their storage and then make it a little bit easier for them.
Peter: Do you have any memorable moments or memorable renters you’ve encountered over the year?
Alejandra: Nothing really too crazy. I feel like people would always tell me that Ballpark would have crazy stories, but I mean, it’s just getting to know the facility. It’s just coming to work every day and enjoying the work. To me, I’m always used to the fast-paced job and people, it’s just an everyday thing now. I’m used to it.
Peter: So what is the area around Ballpark like?
Alejandra: It’s very interesting and cool. There are a lot of restaurants and bars around here so it’s always nice for after hours, and it’s very fast-paced as well because we are kind of in the main area of Gaslamp. We are really near the ballpark, so it gets pretty busy on the street around that time during the summer. Where there is Comic-Con and games, and things like that where there are a lot of people. Then during the winter, it slows down and you do notice it a lot. You won’t see many people on the streets during the week, and once it gets close to summer it’s just a lot faster paced in the downtown area.
“Ally has been great! She is hard working, great attitude and she always wants to learn more. The time she has been here she has proven she can take on extra projects and excel at anything that is thrown her way.”
Laura Castillon, StaxUP Storage Senior Team Member
Peter: So those were all of my self storage related questions. But, you’re not always at work. Do you have any hobbies that you like to do when you’re not on the clock?
Alejandra: Yeah, I usually just like going and hanging out with my friends. Going to restaurants and bars since now I am of age. But I usually like going around the North Park area. They have really interesting bars I like to check out. Usually we just go to different ones, because we used to just go to the same bar all the time. Now we’re reaching out to new ones in San Diego.
Peter: Do you know the names of any of the good ones that you’ve been to lately?
Alejandra: Well Polite Provisions is always a good one. That’s the one I always go to.
Peter: What’s your go-to drink there?
Alejandra: I like the Layover in Paris. It’s a cocktail drink. Because I’m not really a beer drinker, I like the sweeter, fruitier drink. I would recommend that one for sure.
Peter: Right on. Do you have another place that you would recommend?
Alejandra: I would say Hamilton’s Tavern, for more of the beer-likers. I won’t drink so much beer, but I know that I will always find one that I will enjoy. Hamilton’s has a lot of beer selections and it is just a cool place to hang out in.
Peter: You know another question I like to ask, is do you have any advice for people moving to the area? Since you’ve lived there for a while?
Alejandra: I would. It’s pretty pricey here in San Diego, compared to other cities that I’ve visited. There’s always something fun to do here. It’s always sunny so you can visit any time of the year. You can go to restaurants, go anywhere. There are beautiful neighborhoods in the North Park area. Even here in downtown Gaslamp, it’s very interesting to see the buildings and things like that.
Peter: San Diego sounds like paradise! Well, is there anyone on the team that deserves a shout out?
Alejandra: Yes I might be a little bit biased, but the first one would be my sister because she was the one who helped me start out here at the property. It was nice of her to consider me as well as help me get into this job here. Then I would say my manager Tony Coronado. He’s helped me from the very beginning since I started coming here at Ballpark. I felt comfortable asking him when I needed help when I didn’t really know the facility as well. Even now if I get stuck in a situation he’s always there to help me.
