5 Reasons I LOVE Being A Container Store Employee!

5 Reasons I LOVE Being A Container Store Employee!

Seize the Day in STA!!!

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!

15 Actual Thoughts You Have While Wandering Around TJ Maxx

God bless TJ Maxx.


I recently went to TJ Maxx with a friend with the sole purpose of not buying anything. We literally looked at everything, though, and later, I walked out with half a dozen items I was not planning on buying. I'm just glad it was only six from the number of things I saw and liked.

Here were my thoughts as I wandered around TJ Maxx for an hour.

2. "Of course I have to check out the clearance section... except that's basically the entire store."

4. "This may look horrible on me but I'm going to try it on anyway."

5. "Maybe I should just look at some nice clothes for work. You can never have too many business casual clothes..."

7. "$5 makeup... How bad could it be?"

8. "American Eagle shorts for only $15?!"

9. "I can't carry all this stuff."

10. "Do I have a gift card?"

11. "I want to decorate my house with everything in here."

12. "Oh, look, something I didn't need... but buying anyway."

13. "Could I pull this off? It's cheap and looks good on the mannequin..."

15. "Yes, I found what I wanted. No, I did not need any of this."

11 Struggles Of Working Customer Service That Any Retail Employee Can Understand

3. Trying to explain our return policy is a nightmare.


If you are lucky enough to ever work in customer service then you know all the headaches that can come from the job. It's a job that can sometimes be rewarding but also makes you wonder why you put up with it. If you currently are working in or have ever worked in customer service you'll be able to relate to these things:

1. The customer is always right.

Even when they are 100% wrong and being completely rude to you.

2. The customer ALWAYS wants to talk to a manager.

Even though it's my job to handle these problems and my manager is just going to tell you the same thing I just did.

3. Trying to explain our return policy is a nightmare.

Sorry no, I cannot return your 2 year old shoes that look like they have been ran over by a car and thrown in the mud.

4. You are constantly getting yelled at about things you cannot control.

I'm sorry that I cannot control the inventory we have in the store, or that you cannot find your coupon, or that you think our prices are way to high.

5. Trying to help customer who cannot be bothered to get off their phone for 30 seconds...

It's okay, I'll just wait. Take your time, finish your call.

6. When someone complains about you doing your job and enforcing your company's policies...

I know it's my fault that I'm just trying to do my job. My bad.

7. When people think by arguing you'll just give them what they want...

If anything, maybe if you were nice to me I'd try and help you out.

8. Frequently getting ignored when you are speaking...

It's fine, I like talking to myself.

10. The moment of pure anxiety when you know their request is impossible.

And you know you're going to get the brunt of their anger. Yikes.

11. Dealing with entitled, snobby people who think they are more important than everyone...

My absolute favorite thing about working customer service.

Can you relate to any of these annoying things?
