    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.

    Store Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Burlington Stores.

    Interview

    Had to go through 7....that is SEVEN interviews to get the position. Last 2 were in person, all others via phone.
    I applied for an ASM position, that I was overqualified for, but thought I would get my name in the hat in case there was something open I was not aware of. Turned out that local store manager was moving & his position had not even been posted yet, so when he did his interview, he passed on to the HR, etc. that I should have his job. Then the interview process picked up from there for the Store Manager position.

    Inbound Transportation Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Burlington Stores (Edgewater Park, NJ) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Jumped though the usual hoops when dealing with a big company. Went through the levels of telephone interview calls and then a face to face in corporate. At the end of it all they gave me a baloney reason why they didn't want to hire me. Glad I didn't get it. Everyone seemed like a bunch of corporate robots there.

    Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Orlando, FL

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Burlington Stores (Orlando, FL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online for the position, and then about two and a half weeks later received a phone call asking if I was still interested. I was asked to come in at 1:30, and then once I got there was asked to wait on a bench by the front door of the store. My interviewer was about 20 minutes late, though he did apologize for it.

    The actual interview was pretty standard, if a bit perfunctory. My interviewer asked me a few questions, then talked about the store and how things worked. I asked a few questions about scheduling and dress code, which he answered. It was a little impersonal, but I could understand given that I was the second to the last interview that this man had, and he had been doing interviews for three days at that point.

    Overall, it wasn't the best interview I've ever had, but it wasn't the worst. It was informative, and I walked out with a very good idea of what I would be signing on to if I said yes.
