    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Burlington Coat Factory (Orlando, FL) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and got a call for an interview 3 weeks later. I was interviewed by a female manager and she asked me about my schedule and other skills that I have with other jobs. She was extremely friendly and I got the job on the spot. Interview lasted about 5 minutes. Store was super clean, and employees were friendly. Now I'm waiting for a background check. I'm a little nervous because I've had a misdemeanor for disorderly intoxication on my record so I'm not sure if that will affect my hiring process. But overall the process was smooth and quick.

    Make sure to always dress professional. Give them a firm handshake, smile back and be polite. Keep eye contact always and speak with alot of confidence. Give them examples when they ask you for questions and do a little research about the company so they know you did your research. And last but not least, remember that they're already interested that's why they called u in for an interview, impress them more and show them why your there. GOOD LUCK!!!

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Burlington Coat Factory in April 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online. Got called for an interview 2 days later. I scheduled for an interview 4 days after i got the call. The Interview was pretty basic. The Manager was nice. She asked common questions like give an example of previous experience with great customer service. Bad customer service. She said that since I've experienced both good and bad services, i basically know how others would feel if they were to be given such services. Which was a good thing. I was asked mainly about customer service questions. Then we talked about schedules. I had 2 days that I wasn't available anytime and that became a problem i guess. They have an attendance policy that says you need to have at least 9 hours of free time in a day. If you were to call in late 8 times in 3 months, they will have to let you go. she said she would hire me but my schedule had to be set. Ended up not getting back to her about the scheduling. I'm still waiting for another interview result from some place else.
