    I worked at Burlington Stores part-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Pretty lenient and understanding about personal issues Extra hours during holidays Fun and friendly team Decent shifts Great if you already have an income but need extra cash

    Cons

    No room for growth Little to no hours during off season Unrealistic expectations from store manager/corporate. They’ll push a ton of work to get done in a ridiculously short amount of time(and cut hours) just so they can get a bonus. Turn over rate is high so the team changes size a lot, which effects work load The pay isn’t worth the work honestly (11.50/hr) Corporate barely helps with issues unless it’s hurting...

    Advice to Management

    Learn to actually care for your team. When the team is happy they work harder. TRAIN EVERYONE. Talk to the higher up management and corporate about issues associates bring to your attention instead of ignoring it.

        I worked at Burlington Stores part-time for more than a year

The breakroom was fairly nice and spacious and there was almost always food provided by managers. There were store events every month and I always enjoyed participating. I was able to take time off whenever I needed with no questions as long as I talked...

        Cons

        The receiving manager liked to yell and many people quit under his supervision. Managers had way too many meetings, in my opinion. Too much merchandising/display space and never enough product to fill space. Customers were not the greatest, as they would leave trash everywhere and throw clothes on the floor. Managers asked employees to watch out for theft but I felt that was not my responsibility as there were loss prevention...
