    Buying Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Burlington, NJ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.
