Not bad for retail

Part Time Sales (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at Container Store part-time for more than a year

ProsThe company fundamentally respects their employees and doesn't seek to exploit them.

ConsThe company doesn't adjust its hourly wage for markets with higher cost-of-living, e.g. Manhattan.

Advice to Senior ManagementUnderstand that people working in retail in major metropolitan centers will stay with the company longer if they're making a decent living, which is hard to do if you're only paying them the same wage you pay in less expensive parts of the country.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Your employees… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
