    Stores Recruiting Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Burlington Stores.

    Interview

    I applied through their website and a member of the HR Team reached out to me via e-mail to schedule a telephone screening. I replied 3x and the representative went completely silent, despite actively posting other positions on their LinkedIn profile. Seemed a bit unprofessional and time wasting.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Burlington Stores in December 2017.

    Interview

    4 Hours long consisting of an introduction/group exercise followed by 4 consecutive interviews and a 45 min. shadowing session. 3 interviews were normal if not pleasant but the third one was rather unusual. Made me wait outside his office for five minutes with the guide while he attended to other unscheduled business. He then preceded to interview me without having looked over my resume. The entire interview was spent with me explaining the entire thing to him and him asking me about projects and my thoughts on other retailers instead of my experience. Every answer I gave he seemed quite displeased with despite the fact that I had done my research prior. He asked me about my flaws and never asked me about what I could bring to the company so it seemed he made up his mind already. I got the call three days later that they would not be offering me the position despite the fact that they had stressed to me that there were positions open for everyone. When I asked where I had performed poorly the woman on the phone could not collect her thoughts and told me she would have to call me back with the interviewers feedback...Which she still has not done. The whole thing seemed somewhat shady and really left a negative impression of a decent company. It's a shame since everyone except the one man seemed very friendly. Not sure what they are looking for since they are incapable of offering feedback.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Burlington Stores (New York, NY) in November 2017.

    Interview

    The Burlington coat factory in union square made me wait an hour. Interviewing me late. My interview was at 2pm and I didn’t get called in until 3pm. There were a bunch of people waiting at well. They didn’t ask question all they said was what is your availability. Now before I was called for this interview I made it very clear on what my availability is. I could not work Saturday and Monday due to college. When they called me up all they said was “we see you are unavailable on Saturday. Is there anyway you can change it?” When I said no clearly stating why and how I stated before why I can not they told me I can’t work here. They wasted my time and money traveling over here. Worst interview I have ever experienced. Why call me to see if I can change that wen I clearly stated before having this face to face interview?
