As both a recruiter and a consumer, I have been reflecting on retail business lessons that are also relevant to recruitment. At The Container Store, we face stiff competition; many of our retail employees don’t even come from a retail background. We hire teachers, firefighters, students, and people from all industries to work in our stores, warehouse and home office. So we are not just competing for talent against other retailers, we are competing against virtually every company and industry, despite being rated as a Top Place to Work.
