Ruben Elenes - Manage of Encinitas Self Storage

Monday's Q&A with Ruben Elenes - Manager @ Encinitas Self Storage


At San Diego Self Storage, we take great pride in hiring the best employees possible to serve you. We know how important customer service is to tenants, which is why offering exceptional customer service is one of our highest priorities as a company. Aside from being true professionals, our employees are also very upbeat and sociable people! If you haven't taken the time to meet all of the office staff at the location you store at, we highly encourage you to do so. Since you likely only store your belongings at one San Diego Self Storage facility, we wanted to find a way for you to get to know some of our other wonderful employees. 

This month's "Getting To Know The Faces Behind The Counter" features Ruben Elenes. As the manager of Encinitas Self Storage, Ruben oversees the largest of San Diego Self Storage's 18 facilities. His exceptional leadership skills combined with his friendly demeanor inspire co-workers to strive for the greatness. Ruben is not satisfied with simply meeting expectations and standards; he strives to exceed them. New customers love the gregarious first impression that Ruben genuinely exudes. Additionally, tenants admire his even-keel and professional management style. Ruben is an exemplary San Diego Self Storage employee and manager, and it is truly a delight to have him as a key part of our team.
