The Container Store – Why Work For Us?

Founded in 1978, The Container Store is the nation’s original and leading retailer of storage and organization products.

Employee-First Culture 

We put you first. Seriously. Our entire culture is built around the idea that putting our employees first is the best way to create a successful business where everyone (employees, customers, vendors, the community and shareholders) thrives. We believe that if you take great care of your employees, they’ll take great care of customers. And it’s the number one reason FORTUNE magazine has recognized us on its annual list of “100 Best Places to Work For” for the past 19 years.

Our commitment to our employees means you’ll find amazing benefits for both full- and part time employees. We invest in you in every way from giving you extensive training to creating an environment with a focus on FUN whether you work in our stores, home office or distribution center. From our service award celebrations to our annual chili cook off, we know the importance of being recognized and enjoying what you do. It’s all of this and more that allows The Container Store to enjoy a less than 10% annual turnover compared to retail industry averages of 100% and more.

Whether you’re interested in directly helping our customers in one of our stores, managing inventory, working in our Distribution Center, developing design tools and web apps or marketing, you’ll find a range of opportunities at The Container Store. And once you are a part of our team, the opportunities for advancement are equally vast. No wonder people choose to stay 10, 15, even 20+ years with us.

    The Container Store really is a great place to work. I find that employees genuinely focus on working together towards goals that benefit the whole company. Management is compassionate towards employees and willing to make changes that will grow the business and benefit employees, vendors and customer alike.
