5 Reasons I LOVE Being A Container Store Employee!

1. The Employee First Culture

The Container Store has blown my mind over and over again this past month in showing me how they all truly care for their employees. They sent me to rest when I was feeling sick, have fed me over an over again (we all love food here) and have gotten to know me as a person. (My managers have brought up little tidbits about myself that I didn't even realize they would remember from a long ago conversation and truly made me feel like I was special to them. )

2. The extensive training they give all of their employees.

What I love so much, is really that they want us to succeed. The Container Store brings in an amazing team of new store trainers to help open a new store and these people are brilliant, from every walk of life everywhere in the country. These people have become our friends, and have made us all feel like a family far and wide. We've spent almost an entire month getting trained and ready right inside our brand new store and it has been a great experience.

3. The AMAZING product.

so you don't just sell containers? NOPE. think bed bath and beyond AND THEN SOME. Think every product you never thought you needed, but you do.

4. The unity of our employees.

I know I touched on our Employee First Culture, but in a few short weeks our team of almost 50 people has become a large family. I am grateful for these people and everything we've learned together and about each other. There is something special in each person hand picked for this team.

5. Our Air of Excitement

No matter what an employee's role is in this company, everybody is happy to do their part! I have watched all of my coworkers succeed and thrive through training and our opening day festivities and it makes me proud to be part of such an amazing team. Each and every team member is truly excited about their jobs, and offering the BEST customer service to everybody who walks through our front doors!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
