They expect a lot from their employees and employees get a lot in return.

Visual Sales (Former Employee) Washington, DC

ProsThe pay and benefits are unmatched for comparable jobs. Insurance (health care, dental, and vision) is available for all part time employees, regardless of how many hours per week they work. A 401k program is available for all employees who have worked there for 11 months and are over 21. Management encourages a positive atmosphere through their attitudes and by being selective with the people they hire. They expect a lot of their employees and the employees get a lot in return.

ConsI can't think of anything really negative. No company is perfect but TCS is really good to their employees and customers. In my time there, I had no complaints. If you aren't interested in working hard and don't want to put more than a minimum amount of effort into your job, then you probably won't like it.

    I have been working at Container Store


    Pros: As far as retail goes, you will not get better… Cons: The micromanagement is deplorable and the head management condescending and useless. If you have issues with your scheduling the best thing to do is… Advice to Senior Management: Don't ask someone on your team to do something you cannot or will not.
