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

Pros

always looking forward to see my coworkers every time i'm scheduled. other than this, nothing else i would say.

Cons

management level doesn't really care about their employees. they have morning meetings everyday but if you happen not to be there then you would not be informed. to maximize employee's availability for the store benefit, they have been hiring a lot more people and would only have certain amount of hours to distribute for all. which means more people but less hours.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

for once please stop making it all about the store. praise and appreciate your employees don't just always look at the negatives.

    I worked at Burlington Coat Factory full-time

    Pros

    being able to network with many people. creating a store team with a positive environment

    Cons

    no support in time of need on store level. training on management level is not intense enough. you don't learn the important aspects of the business in time of training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be a little more supportive and informative.

    Former Employee - Operations Manager

    I worked at Burlington Coat Factory full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Salary ok but not great, vacation and paid days off for mgt. for hourly employees who are full time(about 15% of staff) get vacation and benefits

    Cons

    for mgt. 50 to 60 hours per week, not enough bodies to run store, hire at minimum wage,
    mgt. at regional and national level a revolving door, no benefits for part time people, many stores in poor repair, store management has little control-has to "partner" with regional associate before dong anything

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    , stay with one game plan, pay associates fairly, take responsibility for your actions.
