    I have been working at Burlington Coat Factory full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are good, health insurance is a little expensive. 401k, plus 4 weeks vacation after 10 years.

    Cons

    I get no time with my family. All my time is spent at work, and traveling. There are times when i am gone (between work and travel time) 16 hours a day. None of my personal responsibilities are ever considered. Job descriptions change on a moments notice. Lay-offs are often and you are always fearful of losing your job. There are good positions within the company, however mine is not one of them and I would not recommend it to my worst enemy. My life has been put on hold for this company and there are few individuals who actually appreciate the hard work.
