Every day that I come to work, I am always so thankful that I get to do what I love, and work with such awesome people. But yesterday, my appreciation for this company went through the roof! It was my birthday and in the midst of my celebration, we endured a terrible storm in the Dallas-area, one of the worst I’ve seen. Instead of an atmosphere of panic during this hectic situation, there was a comforting sense of calm spread throughout the building as we rallied together, held hands and took shelter.
After the storm, we went out to survey the destruction. Many had car damage, including me. Windows shattered, hail damage, you name it. Pretty disturbing to see. But as soon as the weather cleared, our Office and Distribution Center employees sprung into action and quickly set up an “auto triage” in our Distribution Center to help everyone that had glass damage. Cars were covered, taped and secured so that all of us could get home safely. HOW COOL IS THAT?! It never ceases to amaze me how selfless, dedicated and just plain helpful our employees can be! I couldn’t ask for a better group of folks to work with…
So, my birthday ended on a happy note. Everyone is safe and secure and it’s because my colleagues are the best in the business. So thankful I have The Container Store in my life.
