I have been working at Container Store part-time for more than a yearPros
Good starting salary. Store clean and bright.
Employees treated very poorly, by direct management.
Told first day by another employee "watch your back".
Most shifts were understaffed so you literally were doing three people's jobs.
Employees seemed to get how hostile environment was, a real air of "can you believe this" existed.
Sad because everyone said TCS used to be a good place to work. No longer!
You don't dare speak up because you will pay the price.Advice to ManagementAdvice
You need to take a good look at your structure. General Manager, Managers seem to be there to be critical and condescending only. Such a negative unhappy place to work.Doesn't RecommendNo opinion of CEO

The group interview they give you an assignment and ask that you chose one product from their website and come in prepared to explain why you chose this product. The group interview consisted of maybe 6-7 other individuals. Answer Question
