    I worked at Burlington Stores full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Very nice people to work with.
    -The Management team does not sit at a desk all day, they help the workers out on the Floor as well as Registers.
    -Great Co-workers.
    -Very honest and helpful team.

    Cons

    -Some associates tend not to show up for their shift, but that I blame on the individual themselves, not the store or the company.

    Advice to Management

    Listen, this management team is awesome. There is practically nothing I can say to make them more pleasant to work with!

    I have been working at Burlington Stores full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Peers and co-workers are great!

    Cons

    Management is terrible, they play favorites, and generally don't do a whole lot of work (when they are actually here). Pay is extremely low. They take kids right out of college for their "Leadership Program) and those kids make at least double, sometimes triple, what someone who's been working there for years makes. Favoritism is displayed daily.

    Advice to Management

    Find another job because, at some point, you're going to get fired. Have constructive meetings where the actual jobs are discussed. Employees hate wasting their time in meetings because they don't care about your personal lives.
