I have been working at Burlington Coat Factory part-time for less than a year

Pros

some of the workers,15% off

Cons

hours(they take your hours)pay(7.25) they dont care about what you have going on as long as you are there.Its hard to keep the store clean cause they wont tell the customers to not let their children run around,children and adults just throws stuff on the floor put things back anywhere and mess up (as your trying to clean up)than complain that they cant find nothing,or that the store is a mess.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

learn to manage,stop talking about your employes and maybe people will not be trying to find other jobs while working for your.

    I worked at Burlington Coat Factory full-time

    Pros

    Some very nice people. Lots of smiles even though everyone is suffering. I got paid pretty well, though they purposely gave bad reviews to people because earnings were so bad and they looked for an excuse to save the money.

    Cons

    Totally mismanaged organization that works you to death. Corporate structure is a disaster, everyone is afraid to make a decision, sales growth is non-existent and spending is out of control. If you like to spin your wheels, pull your hair out, and then get a poor review because they don't want to pay you your entire bonus that you clearly earned, then this is the place for you. A number of inexperienced people in high places that can determine your fate too. People here will slit your throat and leave you for dead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructure the organization & get new people in there at the top. Otherwise the earnings & employee morale will continue to suffer.

    Extreme micromanagement..lack of talent management...low salaries

    I have been working at Burlington Coat Factory full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people are very friendly

    Cons

    If you want to feel like you are being babysat, this is the job for you. There is such extreme micro managing going on in this place that salaried employees might as well punch a time clock. The talent management process is non existent even though they tell you how much they thrive on growth and development. There is no work/life balance and work from home, summer hours etc are highly frowned upon. I think so many employees have been here so long it's all they know..and don't realize how well other companies promote growth and allow there employees flexibility. You will have culture shock when you leave this company..but it will be for the better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time to overhaul management. If senior managers are consistently earning poor scores on employee surveys, why are they still there? Put them on a performance plan or get rid of them...it's not working.
