    Pros

    helping customers finding the right coat for size and style for all customers of different ages

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Burlington Coat Factory part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The job was great. It kept me busy to where my work days went by quickly. The management team really values and recognizes good work ethics when they see it.

    Cons

    They had me working as a supervisor for about 75% of the time I was working there and I should have been paid the same amount as the supervisors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Might want to consider raising the pay for all positions because it's entirely too much work for the little pay.

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers, most of the time you work with somebody else around. You dont need extreme supervision. Easy going.

    Cons

    Most likely you start getting pay around minimum wage. Work on your feet, raise and bonus are not too common.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Motivate employees with other compensations other than a pay check.

    Pros

    You work with some great people, usually.. Would be an ideal job for a full time student or someone in need of a 2nd part time job.

    Cons

    Poor hours, under staffed and lacking proper managements.. Wages are a little lacking though above minimum wage, impossible to live off of if its your only source of income.

    Negative Outlook
