    Pros

    The management team works together and takes ownership of the store. It allows me to use creative freedom in merchandising and express my ideas on how to better business. The pay and benefits are competitive for management.

    Cons

    The hours can be long, and if you don't have a supportive management staff it makes it difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Know the company, know the product, be confident in your opinions, be prepared to work as a team.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Burlington Coat Factory (Bronx, NY).

    Interview

    Applied online. Got call back by an assistant manager 2 weeks later to set up an interview. Interview was a group interview. Typical retail questions. Everyone interviewed was hired. Just go in there smiling, be polite and answer questions honestly. If Store Manager comes into interview you, ensure you leave a lasting impression. One girl interviewed with me for a sales position and was promoted to manager within the first week!
