    I have been working at Burlington Coat Factory part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I love my job in the baby depot department. When you know your stuff you will enjoy working there. With the right team that treats you like family. If you are having a bad day let them know and they will decide what is best for you. Or medical problems they will help you to try to be flexible so you can keep your job and do what you do best. Always communicate thats the best outcome you will get from your job or any job out there. There are always going to be ups and downs on a job its your choice on how you handle it.

    Cons

    Hours, lack of acknowledgement and recognition when handling customers the right way to make them feel welcomed to come back again by not saying thank you enough for all your hard work and dedication to make the store the best that it should be. Lack of communication to say this is what is going on in the store etc. Schedules are not easy to get there are times when its changed with or without your acknowledgement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees are people too and have feelings. Communication is the best way to treat employees with respect and you will gain that back.
