Suggestions for improvement

The interviewer(s) did not suggest any other positions which might be a better fit. I would have been interested. I am applying to jobs with companies which I have admired, and worked with, especially the sales retail & design staff.

Interview questions

  • My attraction to the Container store? Well run and stockeed. I have shopped, bought and installed their products in closets & kitchens

CandidateApplied as General Manager at The Container Store Inc in Arlington, VA in 2018.

Suggestions for improvement

This has been a common thread, even after physical interviews companies don’t send a turn down or reason why they didn’t celect you. They say you will hear from them but nothing.

A company that doesn’t have the common decency to notify you whether or not they received your application.

CandidateApplied as Sales Associate at The Container Store in Albuquerque, NM in 2017 and did not receive an offer.

Suggestions for improvement

The application process was okay, but I think the requirements were a bit excessive for selling containers and such. I’m a full time college student with excellent customer service skills, what else could they ask for?

Interview questions

  • How do you spend your free time?
  • How do you handle difficult customers in a timely manner?
