"I've worked for the Container store for almost two years. It is a much better environment than most retail establishments. I feel much more supported, and can tell my coworkers are happier to be at work than most retail employees. Overall, the company has great standards and foundations. Proud to call TCS and the friends I've made from working there part of my life."
