    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.

    I worked at Burlington Coat Factory part-time for less than a year

    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
