    Pros

    Some of the best coworkers ever had!
    Managers are friendly and energetic!
    Great customers!
    Positive vibe

    Cons

    No 10 or 15 minute break in a 5 hour shift
    management puts too much pressure on you to get people to sign up for their reward system or they cut your hours.
    have to get be there 10-15 minutes early before shift starts to participate in huddle
    have to wake up as early as 4-5am if doing truck

    Advice to Management

    Don't decide how much hours an employee should get based on how many people they sign up for rewards!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Container Store.

    Interview

    Phone Interview, Group Interview, Personal Interview
    I loved the process and it allows you to be seen in every scenario. It was interesting in the group interview to see people react to a question. I would love this method as a hiring manager. It gives a true view into how people deal with the public/strangers.
    If you can’t be nice in a group interview, how would you react one on one with a customer?
