I have been working at Container Store part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The Container Store has a great company atmosphere. Everyone works together as a team by accomplishing tasks and assisting each other to make sales, campaign set ups, and pm/am merchandising.

Cons

Nothing really. It's a customer service position where most customers you help are great but then there are those customers who are inconsiderate and can ruin your confidence because of their lack of patience.

    I have been working at Container Store part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    *Schedules are posted 2 or 3 weeks in advance
    *Decent pay rate for the industry plus 40% of employee discount on regular merchandise
    *Constant training
    *Working around nice people

    Cons

    *As any other retailer you have to work Holidays, nights and weekends
    *You have to ask customers for email address to link their purchase and to stay connected to the store...and they track your performance every day, it's hard when people doesn't want to share their email because all the junk, spams, privacy, etc. It makes you feel like you have to beg for an email so the company is happy with you. Not fun at all.
    *The apron gives you a really ugly look, but I guess it's not so bad that you wear uniform to save some money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As any other place, there is some good and bad managers. Overall in my store they are good leaders but they forget sometimes to help out the sales people, they ask for too many things at the same time.

    I worked at Container Store full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and employee discount. No extreme hours during holidays. Family atmosphere.

    Cons

    Part-time hours vary with season and management's opinion of the strengths of the employee. Little room for full-time jobs or growth.
