Career Opportunities

Customer service is The Container Store's core competency, so hiring GREAT people who are self-motivated and team-oriented with a passion for customer service is key. We place so much importance on service that every first-year, full-time retail employee receives about 263 hours of training – the retail industry average is about seven hours. And of course, the training continues throughout an employee's career.


The key to The Container Store’s success is our “employee-first” culture, with an intense focus on building strong relationships with employees and, ultimately, with customers.

We believe that if you take care of employees better than anyone else, they will take care of the customer better than anyone else. If the employees and the customers are ecstatic, the shareholders will be ecstatic too.

By bringing in outstanding employees through an intensive hiring process, then training and paying them well, we have built a workplace where employees genuinely enjoy themselves, flourish and thrive. It is the firm belief of our leadership that the focus on employees has been what gives The Container Store its competitive edge and has ultimately resulted in being a great place to work.

Our Foundation Principles™

Not only was The Container Store built on great products, but it was structured around some fundamental values and philosophies about treating employees, customers and vendors with respect and dignity – we call them our Foundation Principles™. By understanding these principles, we can all act as a unit, working toward the same goal. Retail is far, far too situational to attempt to achieve a concerted effort through inflexible rules and policies.
