The container store doesn't stand for the principles they teach.

Sales (Current Employee)
Fort Worth, TX

ProsFlexible hours and decent pay.

Cons5am mornings and late nights closing. Working weekends and holidays. Working with customers. They pressure you to sell but tell you they just want you to "help" customers. If the customer isn't spending at least $60 and buying elfa you aren't helping them right. They play favories scheduling shifts. If you are part time you will have the works hours. "unloading a semi truck at 5am and working weekends."

Advice to Senior ManagementGet out on the sales floor and support your employees.
