I have been working at Container Store part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Employee-first culture
Skill development
Nurturing environment
Flexible scheduling (as Part Time employee)

Cons

Advancement to Full Time is long and drawn out, and, at most times, seemingly unattainable. I have witnessed several great employees go through the process for many months at a time, only to resort to finding Full Time opportunities elsewhere.

Advice to Management

Be more concise about advancement opportunities.

    Pros

    - Anyone below a manager is great to work with

    - Schedules are posted weeks in advance (If your manager is on the ball)

    Cons

    - Corporate is very disconnected from the reality of the stores
    - No accountability for managers
    - No HR Department
    - Very little advancement opportunity
