    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Burlington Coat Factory in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter through linkedin.com. He emailed about openings in the area and scheduled a phone interview with me within the same week. Phone interview was about 45 minutes, standard questions and answered many questions that I had about the company. The following week I was contacted by HR and scheduled a 1:1 interview. Again, very standard straight forward questions. I was given very honest information about the company culture and the position expectations that I was interviewing for. I had a third phone interview the following week and was then made an offer.

    Assistant Merchandise Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Turnersville, NJ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Turnersville, NJ
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Burlington Coat Factory in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    The process to get the interview was very quick and easy. I applied online and a few days later the HR lady emailed me about setting up an interview. It took a few days for her to get back to me. When I went to interview there were 2 other people there and after about 15 minutes 2 others showed up. My interview was for 11am and I didn't get called back til 12pm. Apparently they scheduled 6 people for an interview at 11am. Which I found to be very inappropriate and disorganized. The interview itself was very basic. She asked about previous work experience and what kinds of product have I merchandised before. I did feel like the interview was a little rushed and this was probably because they had made the mistake of scheduling so many people for the same time.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Burlington Coat Factory in August 2008.

    Interview went really good. However, it seemed that the Store Manager did not have control on who was hired but that the District Manager was pulling the strings.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Burlington Coat Factory.

    Interview Details

    Spoke with recruiter and although nice missed the call back time frame he stated.When we did speak he asked general questions and it left a pleasant experience. I was brought in for face to face interview and the manager was easily the most unprepared manger I've ever met with. Didn't have my resume -luckily I had mine. She didn't know my name. No questions prepared just said "so what you got". She turned away multiple times during the interview to look at email while I was speaking. I had some documents prepared just for this interview and she expressed no interest in seeing them. About half way through I lost interest. I wrote a thank you letter to the recruiter but that was merely just me being nice. I received no response and no rejection letter which wasn't a surprise either.. I was not interested in that specific position or working with that manager so it didn't matter to me.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Burlington Coat Factory in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was first interviewed by a lady in HR. She explained the job to me in detail and asked me some questions about what I expected to be doing should I get the job. After talking with her for an hour, she scheduled another interview with another person in the department on a different day. I returned and spoke with the second interviewer who asked me about my professional experience working in an office setting. I was then scheduled for a third interview which took place the next day. This interviewer asked what I thought the job of HR was and what the department did. She also explained to me that going into HR you have to set yourself apart from the other employees with regards to confidentiality. She then suggested that I meet with someone already in the position to find out more of what they did everyday.
