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

    Pros

    Good balance between life and work, work colleagues are great, employee discount is great if you use it wisely, some good managers

    Cons

    Store Managers always passing blame onto department leads and managers when District managers are in the building. Not enough hours given too departments to the point that projects and day to day running of the store puts the store into a position of failure every day. Too many District managers. If you don't stay on top of days off then you will never get paid for them. Health benefits are awful. They don't pay your sick time if you don't have average hours of 7.5 at the end of the fisical year which changes between actual end of year and a month later depending on if your hourly or not, lunch break is too short, hours are cut every day. Pay is minimum wage no matter what your previous experience is

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the excess weight of district management, a district team only needs to be a district manager, a hr manager and a loss prevention manager. With the money that you would save, pump it back into stores that need hours and relocate the stores with tiny warehouses. Managers need to be able to make the decision of terminating bad employees instead of it having to go up the chain of command and be signed off by 3 district managers. Have at least 1 member of the warehouse team in the building between open and close so that they can load the large items for customers instead of relying on untrained salesman to properly lift and load. Give the receiving team more hours to work. An average warehouse need 200 hours to operate correctly and not half that
