    I have been working at The Container Store full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Pay was amazing. People were friendly

    Wasn’t very organized, but they just opened so maybe that’s why and wasn’t enough working electronics

    Former Employee - Retail Sales Associate in Plano, TX

    I worked at The Container Store part-time for more than a year

    Former Employee - RPA 

    I worked at The Container Store full-time

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, family atmosphere, room for growth and development, transparency, condensed workweek schedules available with shift increases for certain shifts

    Cons

    Long hours, periodic mandatory overtime requirements, no raise provided for equipment training or trainer positions—both of which require a significant increase in responsibilities. Nominal flat pay raise structure (i.e. in the form of cents, or $1) leave many employees indifferent to or uninterested in promotions as responsibility load doesn’t adequately reflect pay)

    I have been working at The Container Store part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The store heirarchy seems very linear, so you don't have 3 different bosses to answer to. All my coworkers and bosses are very helpful when I am confused or need to ask additional questions. The coworkers are all very nice and easy to get along with and work with.

    Cons

    The retail work is very grueling on your feet at first, you do a ton of walking in this job. But once you get used to it it's a lot better.
