Pros

It was fun and rewarding to know that you always had new merchandise coming in at the very best prices! We were always the competition.

Cons

A disproportuanate amount of my time was spent performing internal investigation of emploee theft as well as shrink issues.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reward all levels of employees for a job well done.

    Pros

    The people that work there are really nice. If you have any questions just ask and they will help you. The mangers aren't on your back to get things done you can pretty much do your own thing. The mangers are pretty nice if you have any problems going on in your life you can tell them and they usually let you take a day or two off. Theres people that have been working there for years because the mangers are so cool.

    Cons

    Sometimes you dont have enough help especially on the holidays when its crazy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give people more help

    Pros

    Burlington Coat Factory's employees are really friendly and easy to get along with. Good job for someone just starting out.

    Cons

    Not enough hours available for employees AND pays only minimum wage (which you can't live on in NJ). Also, it seems that very few of the employees have a full time position (which means very few have benefits).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should have a quarterly review for every employee and, if they are doing a good job, quarterly salary increases since you start them at minimum wage.
