CSSA Offers New Hire Forms Packet FREE to Members!

It is a necessary, and sometimes bothersome, element of running any business -- forms. You love them and hate them, but you need them. The California Self Storage Association (CSSA) is actively working to help meet the needs that self storage owner/operators have for forms. The good news is that the CSSA has put together a packet of New Hire Forms and the better news is that they are free to CSSA members in good standing! Not a member? Membership fees start at only $250, and provide access to this product and other forms absolutely free!

This new member benefit from the CSSA is one that executive director Erin King is particularly pleased about. "We consider it a top priority to consistently provide new benefits for our CSSA members and we certainly hope that all of our members take advantage of this free offering,” says King. "We will continue to find ways to help our members and make the CSSA the best state association in America.”

An overview of the New Hire Forms Packet can be found on the CSSA’s online store, but a quick look at the breakdown of what the packet includes is outlined below.

  1. NEW HIRE CHECKLIST: Overview of packet contents and new hire process.
  2. EMPLOYMENT APPLICATION: Customizable standard employment application template.
  3. SAMPLE INTERVIEW QUESTIONS: For Property Manager.
  4. SAMPLE INTERVIEW QUESTIONS:  For Operational Associate and Cleaning Personnel.
  5. FAIR INTERVIEWING PRACTICES: Outlines standard Fair Interviewing practices and questions to avoid during the interview process.
