    I worked at Container Store full-time (More than a year)


    The pay for full-time is better than average. Benefits are great, though pricey. Take ownership and partnership in managing and impacting local store, digging into the details and coaching others in the process. In a given day you could stock shelves, unload a truck, design a custom closet, clean the bathrooms, give a product presentation to customers or plan a campaign change or rework. It can be tough to get hired at TCS and it's reflected in the culture. Co-workers can be fabulous people and work to high standards with minimal oversight. Customers are generally fantastic. Employee discounts are generous.


    Most employees are part-time and vertical moves are unlikely. Retail hours are tough. Be prepared to work any and all shifts in a given work week.

    Advice to Management

    New initiatives pull hours away from selling. CELEBRATE more! Your salespeople shouldn't unload trucks. Frequent and lengthy written reviews are unnecessary.

    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Container Store.


    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.
