Current Employee - Merchandise Team Associate in Amarillo, TX

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

Pros

Flexible Hours
Environment can be relaxing at times
Weekly Pay

Cons

Workload is horribly balanced, Too few employees with too few Hours
Very Fast Turnover Rate.
Managers screw around with the schedule to much, then scold you for their screw ups.
"tattle tell" environment.
Pay Sucks
If you ask for a day off even months in advance, you probably wont get it anyways

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Managers, Let employees work instead of having to constantly butt into everyone's business by either screwing up schedules, getting other employees to tattle tell, etc.... Your job is to keep the employees happy, not to try to upset them.

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO
