There aren’t enough words to describe why The Container Store is such a great place to work – but we sure tried!  We continued our celebration of the announcement that The Container Store was once again on FORTUNE Magazine’s list of “100 Best Companies to Work For” in a recent marketing department meeting.  We went around the room and each described why we feel The Container Store is such a great place to work — and talk about inspiring!  Just when you thought you knew your colleagues of 2, 5, 10, 15 years, you learned something more about how The Container Store has touched their heart. The catch — everyone had to say something different, which is amazing when you consider that there were more than 30 people in the room. See for yourself what everyone had to say!
