    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Container Store.

    Interview Details

    Interview consists of a phone and two in person interviews. The phone one is a breeze so long as you don't 'go through the motions' and show a little personality (taste, not a meal). The first is a group interview where you discuss what your favorite TCS product is and why, as well as the usual prompts of why you want to work for the company and how you think it might aid you. The other is a one on one that is far more personal and will delve into your personal history of employment, as well as what your other ambitions and prospects for the future might be.
