I worked at Burlington Coat Factory full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Everyone meets in the morning to say good morning to the rest of the crew and you really get to know your coworkers and it helps you enjoy the work environment. Not stressful at all and you can advance in the company if you work hard. I worked in two different stores. One location was awesome and the other one was a disaster.

Cons

The company makes large payroll cuts and sometimes this hurts the ability for all customers to leave happy. Its a revolving problem because they (like all other retailers) rely on customer feedback to praise the employees but when the numbers come back with mad customers they tell the employees it was their fault.... when really we just never had enough help.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make sure your store is clean! And at least let the employees understand that you know part of the problem is payroll cutbacks.

    I have been working at Burlington Coat Factory as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    none at this partiular facility exeption some of the hourly people

    Cons

    no real direction, store manager is a lazy office manager, never out on the floor except before he leaves so he can make a list for someone else to complete, if he likes you you can pretty much do what ever you want but if you have asked questions or have concerns about how things should work or ask for direction and or help you r and issue and will soon find your full time status taken away or schedule hours cut, very inconsistent with the staff, show favortisum with white employees vs minorities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    need to get this manager to some Diversity training, and get the lawyers tuned up this guy is a walking law suit!
