    Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cutler Bay, FL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Burlington Stores (Cutler Bay, FL) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Our new Cutler Bay Burlington held a Job Fair that had interviewees waiting outside in long lines in 90 degree weather. This was very unprofessional of them from the beginning. Didn't inform me that I had to be 18, when my application said 16 minimum age. If they're going to have an age minimum, they should've made it consistent across all of their platforms. And I know I was likely more qualified than most who applied. Very Disappointing.

    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Murrieta, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Burlington Stores (Murrieta, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Meh. It was a group interview and the interviewer spent more time telling us what we did wrong rather than actually asking us questions. He told us we should have brought documents of proof on our schooling and awards and that we should have done more research on the company. I suppose I didn't take the interview too seriously and that is my fault.

    The recruiting process began on-campus, and from there applicants were contacted with an interview at the career center. After that interview, applicants were brought on-site to have three back-to-back interviews (no, they had not told us this!) with VP's of different offices of the workplace. Each of these interviews was one-on-one with that VP, who explained what they did in the company and then graded the potential interns on a measurement scale.
