    I have been working at Burlington Coat Factory part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The only pros that I could think of would be the connections you make with other employees, and the chance to meet new people.

    Cons

    Working at BCF is one of the things in my life that I wish I could take back. You get no appreciation when they call you in on your day off, when a customer compliments you to a manager, or even when you stay late to finish a task you were given. They rarely promote from within, thus there's no room for growth in the company unless you start out in corporate. I've been working there for two years, and after expressing my interest in becoming a Supervisor, which I'm trained for, and I also work for my supervisor when he needs a day off, I'm constantly denied. I'm an excellent worker, and my manager says I'm "phenomenal", yet I don't get promoted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management shows no interest in letting an employee grow with the company.
