The first location of The Container Store opened in 1978 to much fanfare. Some said, “A store that sells empty boxes?” But the little, 1,600-square-foot store in Dallas ended up being much more than that. It was a store devoted to helping people simplify their lives. It was the first of its kind — originating the storage and organization category of retailing. Today, The Container Store remains the industry leader, with an innovative product mix, a unique corporate culture and top-notch employees who provide a level of service that's second to none.
The Container Store is dedicated to helping customers get organized, helping them save space and, ultimately, valuable time. And who couldn't use a little more of that?
“I feel my input is valued. I feel like I am an important part of a well-working team. I have never had management that listens as well as is done here.”
“I work with great people. There is tons of training and support. Great atmosphere. The customers are as nice as co-workers. It's pretty darn close to perfect!”
“The people and culture.”
