    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 part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Cares about associates.
    Decent pay.
    Good atmosphere.
    Look forward to going to work!
    I have never liked working at a job as much as I love working here.

    Cons

    Not enough hours!!
    Other than that this place doesn't really have any negatives. They could get some extra materials for the overnight shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what your doing!

    Pros

    Great team of people, most supervisors worked well with teams. Most of team members worked very well together especially during the busy holidays

    Cons

    Not enough structure, mgmt team needed to work closer as a team. One member of mgmt would request jobs done a certain way and other mgmt team would request it another way.

    I have been working at Burlington Stores full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Not many companies make caring about their associates, their customers, and their communities a centerpiece of how they define themselves . . . but Burlington does! At a recent Town Hall meeting they talked about all the normal business updates, like having 18 consecutive quarters of comp store growth, but they also took time to talk about what the company does for the communities that all of us live in and work in. The company supports teachers, fights heart disease in women, and raises money to end cancer. How much better can it get. And I have found my job to be very fulfilling, and the management to be terrific. I think Burlington is a wonderful place to build a career and highly recommend it as a place to work.

    Cons

    Frankly there just aren't many negatives to working for a company that is growing, opening new stores, and cares about its employees. It would be nice if we could get better music during lunch in the cafeteria, but you can't win them all . . .

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing all the great things you have been to make this a wonderful place to work.

    I have been working at Burlington Stores full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I'm approaching my 8 year anniversary at Burlington and am truly looking forward to the next 8! Whether for professional or personal reasons, I have moved on at around this tenure from a few major retailers. I can't even imagine feeling that way in this dynamic, ever evolving company. I am energized every day to be innovative, help our store partners, drive sales and feel that my contribution matters. and the best part- I'm in my beloved state of NJ!

    Cons

    I truly can't think of a one- I have only felt this way once before in my career.

    Advice to Management

    I trust our executive team to keep propelling our off price model forward and achieving phenomenal growth while still caring about the associates and the community!
