    Former Employee - Sales Associate in Raleigh, NC

    Pros

    The senior staff is very helpful and can be very informative of other departments. The staff as a whole do their best to keep the store shopable, and the flow of merchandise is always being refreshed by the merchandise team. Weekly pay checks.

    Cons

    The management needs to be trained in management skills, there also needs someone to really train newly hired staff. Burlington expectation of staff is not reasonable, there are many projects thorough out the store that are started and very rarely totally completed. The Management team say one thing but something else is done, schedules are changed with hardly any notice no time for family, sick, vacation,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More training for newly hired/and department transfers,be honest with staff about pro and cons of performance and what needs to be done in work area. Be more involved with all aspects of day to day operations of the store. BE Consistent and Fair regardless of who it is.
