    Advice to Management

    I've been at Burlington for over a year now, and I fell in love with the job since day 1. The staff are all great to work with, everyone enjoys their jobs, and the clientele are always cheerful, knowing that they will be coming back again and again for the low prices for name brand items and great customer service they receive. I always come away with a great sense of accomplishment when I see my cashiers apply themselves to offer great customer service and keep a keen eye on the cleanliness of the front end for a safe and attractive work environment. Everybody takes great pride in their work, and it truly reflects on how wonderful I feel about my career there as well. When a customer leaves the store happy and looking forward to their next visit, along with the savings they're going to get when they do return, plus the wonderful customer service they'll receive, that's what I call the heart of Burlington, and that's what I feel every one of our customers deserve to experience.
