Hi my name is Daniel and I am one of the staff members at Store UR Stuff.
I never thought I would end up working in storage, however things never go as you expect them too.
After finishing my education at Brighton Secondary School I was looking for employment for quite a while. Not knowing what I wanted to do for the rest of my working life,I ended up securing a job at Subway. I had applied for several trainee-ships during this time with not much response. One that I applied for was with HIT for a potential Administration Trainee-ship and to my surprise I received a call to let me know I had to attained a job interview.
Unfortunately I was unsuccessful in that venture due to location and distance from where I live.
Later that month I received an email asking me if I was still interested in the Administration Trainee-ship, they had a temporary position available for 2 weeks. The company was called The Saturno Group who own and run 8 hotels and 4 “Booze Brothers” bottleshops. The position was for an Administration Assistant and working with the POS system for the hotels and bottleshops from their head office.
I decided the opportunity was too good to pass up and started working there shortly after. Before the 2 weeks had finished, I was asked if I was available the following week to help out.
While I was working there, there were whispers that The Saturno Group were expanding and had started developing plans of converting their warehouse that they no longer used into a self storage facility.
Just before construction was completed I was offered a full time job with the company and offered the opportunity to work out in the storage facility now known as Store UR Stuff. I accepted the offer almost immediately.
I didn’t realise just how big the self storage industry was world wide, as well as in Australia, until I became a member of the industry myself.
As you can see, a month before I joined the Store UR Stuff team I had no idea things would end up how they have, however, one thing I can is say that I am glad
things have ended up the way they have because it has been a fun and eventful ride from the very start!
