    I applied online – interviewed at Burlington Coat Factory.

    Interview Details

    Though its a 1on1 interview, someone might also be in there. I was nice and they're really comfortable to talk with. They do don't show off as intimidating which makes it a whole lot easier for the person being interview. The questions were quite easy thankfully.

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Burlington Coat Factory in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and put in all the information that they asked for, including my birth date, i got a call back that same week to go in for a group interview. They had us all introduce ourselves, say what position we were interested, and if we had any work experience. The interview was about an hour long and after it was over the manager had a word with me and told me i wasn't eligible because i wasn't 18. They knew that from the beginning but wasted my time.

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

    Interview Details

    The application was typical.I was called back a few days after submitting and was asked questions about my availability and why I left my last job. I scheduled an interview the next day and the manager interviewing me was extremely nice. We talked for a while after discussing my position. I was offered it right on the spot and was told they would do a background check even though I told her I had other interviews.

    Interview Questions
    • She only asked me a couple of simple questions like "Tell me when you went above and beyond for a customer".   View Answer

    I received another job offer that paid more. However, this place seems like a great place to work! Everyone was friendly and seemed to get along really well. They offer such great discounts even for your friends and family!
