The real plus is having hours that fit with employees who have children
Visual Sales Merchandising Assistant (Current Employee), Atlanta, GAMay 25, 2015
Each day upon arrival, the employee would find out what position/area they would be working in for their shift. I learned how the visibility of items and campaigns hugely impacted sales of a particular item. The management was okay. Our manager recently was fired after corporate figured out she was the cause of massive turnovers. The hardest part of the job is lifting and removing items at the very top in the stockroom or on the floor in front of customers. Sometimes you don't have anyone to assist you so you must be extra careful as customers are below you. I enjoy the new campaigns and products we see first.

Overnight Merchandiser/Visual Sales (Former Employee), New York, NYMay 25, 2015
TCS overnight shift is fun but very different from what you see during the day. The work is very tedious and repetitive. This a great second job for those us who need supplemental income. Great for college students, actors, musicians, or in need of a second job. Management is very visible and approachable. Very relaxed working environment. Management does a very good job of being very selective with hiring new employees. Very low turnover for a retail business.

Seasonal Team Member (Former Employee), Houston, TXMarch 18, 2015
Everyone is very nice; they're almost like a family there. I never once felt uncomfortable and when you mess up, they are very understanding. The training is very helpful and they pay you for training which is more incentive to pay attention.

Transitional Team (Former Employee), San Antonio, TXFebruary 20, 2015
Pros: friendly staff, great pay

As a Seasonal Transitional Team Member, I unpacked new stock onto shelves, while still having the product maintain visual organization. The majority of my duties consisted of: unloading stock, opening boxes, unwrapping and unpacking product in a fast but neat manner.

Best Retail Job I Ever Had
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Columbus, OHOctober 7, 2014
Pros: great pay, positive team environment, room to advance, hard work is always noticed
Cons: carrying product to customers' cars in bad weather was never fun, but they give you coats to wear if it's cold or raining
The Container Store culture is one of enthusiasm and teamwork. They set the bar high on the services they provide customers, but it never goes unrewarded. Daily and weekly team meetings to talk about sales goals is typical, but the meetings are approached in a positive way -- one that gets you excited to work hard to meet those goals as a team. Holiday time in retail environments can be stressful, but at The Container Store, you can be chosen to give gift wrapping demonstrations to customers and it is so much fun. Management team worked hard but they always were approachable and helpful. Pay and benefits were the best I have seen in most retail sales associate positions. They encourage promotion from within and many people stay on with the company for years.

Excellent company to work for
Sales (Current Employee), Southern CaliforniaSeptember 14, 2014
Pros: flexible hours, benefits, great co-workers, decent pay.
Cons: management leadership, lack of discipline
Each day at The Container Store, I get to work with a fabulous team. We each support each other and work great together to get the job done. I feel productive in my position and love the atmosphere. This company has its moments, just like any other company, where sometimes the direction and leadership can be questionable. However, the company as a whole, takes great care of their employees and does their best to ensure each individual has the full support of the business at all times.
