    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.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Burlington Coat Factory (Marietta, GA).

    Interview

    I was called MONTHS after applying. I had even forgot I applied. I was called in for an interview and was asked the basic questions. Why do you want to work here? "Name a time when..." type of questions. After that I was called back for a secondary interview by the manager and he asked me similar questions and told me about himself. It was all very chill. Just don't be dull or totally inept and you'll be fine

    I came in early, but was seen twenty minutes after i was supposed to arrive. Once I was seen the manager asked me questions she was reading from a bunch of papers, and then told me i was there for a different position and explained what I would possibly be doing if I was hired. She then left and I had to wait another 35 minute to see the other manager. I was asked similar questions and then told that I should check my email to see if they were interested in me.

    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.
