    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Burlington Coat Factory (Madison, WI) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I found the job on indeed.com, and I applied thru their corporate site. I received a phone call to set up a time for the interview. The interview was conducted by the assistant store manager, and it was very low-key. Almost all the questions were behavioral interview questions about customer service and the ability to work well in a team setting.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Burlington Coat Factory (Saint Louis, MO) in February 2013.

    Interview

    I talked to two managers, one that is now long gone. I was told they needed mlmore receiving associates than cashiers at the time. The other who is the main manager who never told me the conditions of the job he wanted me for. It was a fairly easy interview for a job that pays title but demands a lot.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation, on second thought I do wish I would have negotiated not knowing that the hours would be decreased and the pay would get worse.

    Interview

    The interview process went smoothly it was a real simple nd quick process for me. Only because I don't have much work experience this would only be my second job. So it really wasn't to many questions they could ask. I interviewed with two managers they were both very nice nd down to earth. So after I finished the questions they told me they were going to send me a background form to fill out. Nd then after that they would let me know if I got it.

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Burlington Coat Factory (Elizabeth, NJ) in May 2014.

    Interview

    It was a group interview in a private room. One of the managers would ask a question and we would all go around in a circle answering them. They asked very generic questions and the interview as no longer than 20 minutes. It is required that you are available weekends. Majority of the people, if not all, were hired from the interview. After the interview he immediately asked everyone for their availability and by the next week I was back for a 3 day orientation.
