Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Burlington Coat Factory (Atlanta, GA) in May 2015.

Interview

The interview went great. The manger was nice and very professional. She even joked around a few times. She asked me 6 questions, which were very easy. She changed a few questions due to it being my first job and i had JUST graduated from high school. All in all, it went well and i was hired on spot.

    Interview was quick and harmless, only took about 15-20min. You're asked simple questions that most retail businesses may ask. Manager was friendly and understanding of my second job. Offered to raise my pay on the spot due to my prior retail experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Burlington Coat Factory (San Diego, CA).

    Interview

    Back when I first applied it was very easy, you filled out a paper application then were interviewed. Now I believe you must apply online and pass an assessment, if they do not call back you didn't pass the assessment. Very easy to get hired, most people don't have any education and they don't seem to do background/drug checks.
    Interview questions are EASY.

    Interview Questions

    • (assuming you worked retail) how do you respond to change on the sales floor?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There wasn't really any negotiating done, if you get hired for a supervisor position try to ask for more than current minimum wage + 1 dollar or else thats what they'll pay you.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a weekinterviewed at Burlington Coat Factory.

    Interview

    I submitted my application and got a call back. I went to my interview wearing slacks and a blouse which they were appreciative of. I had a rather short interview with an assistant manager he asked routine questions and gave me a tour of the department. I later had another interview with the store manager and was asked about my experience and how i would handle certain situations with difficult customers. In the end I was asked some questions about myself (they wanted to see if I would make a good fit) and the interview was over. It took about an hour and I received a call the next day asking if I was still interested and that they wanted me to come in for orientation.
