    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Burlington Coat Factory in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied online through their website. Received a call about two days after. Scheduled an interview time and day. Brought a copy of my resume and original official documents (social security and drivers license). Interview itself was less than 15 minutes. Was asked some questions about what I think is the most important thing in retail for the customer (make them comfortable and provide a memorable experience). Talked about the minimum wage being innegociable. Got the job. Went home and got a call to schedule the training. Training was basically filling out forms and understanding policies and walking around the sales floor.
