    Stock-Merchandise-Flow Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Birmingham, AL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Burlington Stores (Birmingham, AL).

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted a week later for an interview. The interview consisted of a 25-30 minute tour of the store by the assistant manager and what the particular position entailed. I was then brought into the store manager’s office where he went over my application and asked me one question “why should I hire you”? Basically, I was hired pending a background check. My background check cleared a few days later and I was set to work.

    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!
