Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Burlington Coat Factory.

Interview

I walked in and went to the registers to ask for the hiring manager. One of the cashiers said that the hiring manager is on lunch break, so I looked around the store as I waited. When I went back, I realized that the hiring manager wasn't there, so I asked a different cashier and finally got a hold of the manager. When I finally got to the interview, it was pretty generic. None of the questions were that difficult and I was asked to clarify some of the stuff that was on my resume.

    Interview

    I interviewed with two ladies, both of them very nice, in a little office. It was very casual and friendly. They went over my availability, asked me some questions, talked about what a cashier does and what working for the company is like, and offered me the job on the spot. It was very laid back and fun for an interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Burlington Coat Factory (Murrieta, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Meh. It was a group interview and the interviewer spent more time telling us what we did wrong rather than actually asking us questions. He told us we should have brought documents of proof on our schooling and awards and that we should have done more research on the company. I suppose I didn't take the interview too seriously and that is my fault.

    Interview

    Painless. It was like all other retail jobs. You do have to call to check on the application process. The background check takes some time, so expect that to hold up the process

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Burlington Coat Factory (New York, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    pretty much the easiest interview i ever had. I had a group interview with me and another girl and soon as we sat down she pretty much already gave us the job. She explained to us exactly what we would be doing, pay, and work entire, and then said your hired. She was going to ask us the basic interview questions but said our "personality" did it for her. Pretty much all you have to do is smile a lot and be available on weekends and you got the job

    Interview

    I applied online and was emailed the next day for an interview. I laughed at the horrible jokes and wore a very plain sweater with dress pants and just did my hair/makeup simply. It was maybe the next day or day after, I was called and asked to accept the position. I did horrible in the interview and never expected to hear back. I started at 8 in the morning the next day. First 3 days, I worked 10 hours each. You always begin training on a Saturday (worst day ever. It's like a stress test.)
