Perfect first job

Prime Time Sales (Former Employee)
Miami, FL

ProsLoved the atmosphere, pleasant coworkers, genuinely want to help customers.

ConsOnce the company was sold it wasn't as 'family oriented' as it originally felt. they lost the 'happy employees make even happier customers' philosophy, so it wasn't quite as much fun to work there, employees aren't nearly as appreciated as they used to be.

Advice to Senior Managementgo back to old management styles. your employees are your best assets.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    part time visual sales

    Part Time Visual Sales (Current Employee)
    Denver, CO

    I have been working at Container Store part-time for more than a year


    Pros: Opportunity to work with an amazing group of people, with vast backgrounds. TCS's customers are great and working with them to solve organization problems… Cons: Little known fact, TCS promotes FT / Managers from outside - GIANT disconnect from their Foundation Principles. This is not 1=3, except for the… Advice to Senior Management: Hire more FT people, reduce the # friends and family hired by Managers.
