    I have been working at Container Store

    Pros

    Surrounded by amazing, smart people. Feels like family around here. The leadership is great, always encouraging and helping employees grow. The benefits are great and the company is always putting together fun events to keep everyone motivated.

    Cons

    There isn't much to say when it comes to the cons at this place. People are respected and made to feel like they matter. Training is a big deal and important to the success of the store staff. It is key to understand the impact our products make for our customers

    I worked at Container Store as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    There are too many pros to list, but the strong company culture and amazing co-workers are what really made my internship amazing! I got to do 2-week rotations with all of the marketing teams including creative, social media, community relations, cultural programs, paid media, customer engagement, and more. I learned so much about the company as well as marketing in general. This company is truly one-of-a-kind, and if you have the chance to apply- DO IT! There wasn't a single day where I didn't want to go into work, and most days they had to force me to go home! The environment both in-store and in the home office can't be beat and the food in the cafe is to die for!

    Cons

    The only thing I can think of is that because I am still in college, I had to adjust to working with peers that were older than me. Not really a con though... loved getting the chance to be in the 'real world' and work on communication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I really loved the management! The leadership was so passionate about the employees and even as an intern I felt so cared for and like my opinion mattered.

    I have been working at Container Store part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    some of the nicest people to work with--plus a really good discount

    Cons

    do not promote people based on ability but rather on favoritism
    also outside hiring in management positions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees that have been with you awhile. They want to make this company better and have the insight to save time and money while doing so. Paying a high price for "new things" does not equate to them being better or greater than what you have and need.

    Fantastic people to work with and great flexibility. I would highly recommend this job, and I've worked a lot of retail in the past.

    "Trucks", or merchandise processing is difficult and early, but a great work out.

    None, really.
