    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Burlington Stores (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I applied online two days later i got a call from the local store manager where she scheduled me in for an interview the very next day at noon. I walked into the store i had applied to and asked for the manager by name where i was taken to her office. it was a group interview but your situation may differ. It was me and five others (a group of six in total) (we had all applied to different open positions). . Then she walked through our daily tasks wages and expectations. Afterwards we all stood up and the manager congratulated all of us on our new jobs.

               2 days later i received an email congratulating me followed by another email asking for personal information for a background check (social security, name, address etc.) shortly after on the same day i received a username and password (keep this handy for your orientation day) to access the companies employees website. You're going to have to login as soon as you receive your credentials and complete all the forms sent to you through the employees website (emergency contacts, personal contact info, personal info, tax info, etc.)

             the next day i receive a call to come in for my orientation that same day. i am given my employee card, name tag and i take a "test" on a computer. after completion i'm given my schedule and i'm all good to start working the following week.

    - I hope this was helpful to you (reader) spread the kindness and post your experience for other new people interested in a similar job :)

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Burlington Stores (Racine, WI).

    Interview

    It was simple. I was contacted about coming to interview. The same day as I submitted my application. During the interview the Manager told me that I was not suppose to talk about wages with other employee which is a federal rules. When I brought this up to him he said it was in the employee rule book. This is not true. I would look out for this location. I was offered the job and I took it. I don't recommend working at this location.

    Assistant Buyer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Burlington, NJ
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Burlington Stores (Burlington, NJ) in December 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was an appropriate length. From submitting an online application, to emailing directly with a recruiter, to phone screening, finally to a round robin style interview day. The interview day was 9am-1pm. Starting with group discussions, we analyzed how we would rate a sample product on an FQBP scale. Then followed up with 4 individual one-on-one interviews. It was good to get a few different perspectives from representatives all at different stages of their career. For the remainder of the time we shadowed a current assistant buyer and were about to ask any questions with them as well. After concluding the day, we were told we would be notified within two days. I received my offer over the phone two days later and accepted!
