Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Container Store.

Interview

Applie online. Received an email a month later to schedule date and time for phone interview. Phone interview was pretty easy regular interview questions. After the interview I was invited to a group interview. Group interview was all videos and then questions about videos. I was 10 min late at group interview and missed first video. After the group interview I wasn't expecting second interview but I recieved an email for second one on one interview. Interview was with the same manager who did phone interview and group interview. They showed me around the store and stock room explain the kind of work I might do and ask if I was willing to do it. They ask for background check and after that drug test. After the drug test I recieved an offer email to accept job or decline.

    online application, group interview, phone interview, in person interview ... they do it all and it takes forever. none of the questions are difficult, they just want to see how you get along with people and if you can communicate yourself effectively. be energetic and positive.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Container Store (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    I submitted my application and was called within a few days for a brief chat and a group interview. I was told that there was a "homework assignment": to choose an area of my home with an organization challenge and bring in a picture of a Container Store item that I could use to solve the problem. At the group interview the manager explained a bit about what it is like to work there and then showed some videos about their Foundation Principles. After each video she asked what we thought and it was a little awkward because sometimes we all tried to respond simultaneously and it was hard to make sure that I spoke up without talking too much and/or repeating things that other people said, but we just did our best. After the videos we shared our "homework" and then were asked to fill out forms showing our availability. The next day I received an email requesting a background check and a few days later was called to come in for a one-on-one interview. In that interview, they confirmed my availability, then asked me to tell them about myself. Then they asked more about my availability and asked if I had any questions. This interview was very brief.

    Interview Questions

    • Group interview:
      - Response to videos and Foundation Principles
      - What is your availability?

      Individual interview:
      - What is your availability?
      - Tell us about yourself.
      - What questions do you have for us?   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Container Store (South Florida, FL) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Group Interview, other candidates came unprepared.You needed to know about the company and be prepared to stand out. After the group interview you are invited for a one-on-one. One manger seemed desperate to hire, another seemed more selective. If you are bi-lingual you are almost a guaranteed shoe in, they are looking to increase there customer base.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Container Store (South Tampa, FL).

    Interview

    Applied online and got an email to attend a group interview. It was scheduled about 3 weeks in advance. Also they asked you to do homework and bring in a picture of a product that you found on their website that you could find useful in your home. Pay attention to the 3 videos they play during the group interview, they ask everyone to give their opinions and what not afterwards. About 2 days later I received an email asking to attend a one on one interview. I interviewed with two managers. It was really relaxed and was offered a seasonal part time position 3 days later.
