    Visual Sales - Part Time Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Schaumburg, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Container Store (Schaumburg, IL).


    Fill out the application online, and they call you in for a group interview. The group interview will include homework as preparation, so make sure you do the work. They want to know that your passionate and that you're a 1 equals 3 employee. Meaning, one of you is equivalent to three average employees, productivity-wise as well. READ THE FOUNDATION PRINCIPLES on the website. Do your research.
