    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 (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have been in retail management for years. I have worked for big box retailers and I love the work life balance Burlington provides me. Honestly the best in the industry. I love the support I receive from Corporate level staff to my RVP and Regional Team. There are no disconnects at Burlington. It's very clear from day 1 to all associates we are here for the same reason.

    Cons

    The only thing I can think of and the company is working on this, is system updates. Some of the systems we use are out dated. But the company is aware and systems will be updated.

    Advice to Management

    None right now..
