    Is recent "we are say one thing and do another" a result of being publicly traded, or just a bad general manager?

    I worked at Container Store part-time (More than 3 years)


    Company provides excellent training, amazing discounts and other benefits. Get the impression top management "walks the walk". Definite team atmosphere amongst associates.


    Store managers were focused on negatives, especially with longer term employees. Seemed to hire ill-suited employees and then let them flail, hurting overall morale. GM not open to constructive feedback.

    Advice to Management

    Take a closer look at stores where longer-term prime-time associates start to leave, regardless of reason. Also when new hires are gone within a very short period of time.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Container Store (Rockville, MD).


    First you have the group interview, then you have another one-on-one with the manager. The group interviews are very important to show how you will interact with the team in that environment. It is business casual, but it is always better to be better.
