    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Burlington Stores (Raleigh, NC) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was very simple. I was asked a couple questions, then asked about my availability. Nothing too extravagant. Honestly, they probably should have done more. I've seen them do some group interviews as well though.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Burlington Stores (Burlington, NJ) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I applied on-line, they got back to me for an interview. I went to their distribution center and met with a supervisor I would work under. He walked me around the warehouse and explained a bit about what they do and expect. He handed me off to another supervisor who tested my ability to drive a Cherry Picker and a Stand-Up Reach Truck. Once they saw that I was able to drive those machines with no problem, they set me up with a date and time to go to a paid orientation, and I was hired.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Burlington Stores in July 2017.

    Interview

    Received a phone call from HR, progressed to two phone interviews with current store managers and then a final interview with the rvp. Found out at the end that they have zero vacation. 5 sick days, 6 floating holidays and then 5 days that they give back to you after they make you work 6 days a week during 4th quarter.

    Markdown Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Rochester, NY

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Burlington Stores (Rochester, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly easy considering that there were about 6 other people they were interviewing the same day I was. The manager was really nice and she helped to alleviate my nervousness because this was my first time working in retail sales. I have another job but I didn't have to really go through an extensive interview and I already knew everyone there, unlike at Burlington. But it went really well and I heard back from them within a few days.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Burlington Stores (Marlton, NJ).

    Interview

    Burlington applications were extremely long drawn out applications. If you apply for a store based positron you will have to take a test to see if you qualify, the majority of this year is questions like: "I have never broken a rule: Strongly Disagree, Slightly Disagree, In Between, Slightly Agree, or Strongly Agree" or "I sometimes misplace things: Strongly Disagree, Slightly Disagree, In Between, Slightly Agree, or Strongly Agree." If you don't pass this test, you'll never even be called to interview. I have worked for Marshalls for quite a few years and was told I did not pass the test (I wasn't supposed to be told that). So ending, they rather employees who can pass a test more than ones who have actually proven the job at another off price retailer.
