    I have been working at Burlington Stores full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay is good
    Benefits
    Bonuses are good
    They always look to promote from within
    Opportunity for advancement
    Sometimes discount is 25% otherwise is 15% which isn't too bad being a discount store already

    Cons

    Not enough payroll to get workload done
    No work life balance
    Stressful
    Upper management micro manages
    Doesn't seem to be any succession planning
    Will pay someone from outside the company way more then they would if you were promoted to that position

    Advice to Management

    Need to be more balance with work and bring off. You should not have to check emails, answer calls or texts on off time.

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

    Pros

    NONE at all, they lie, cheat, and steal.

    Cons

    Long hours with no extra pay or incentives. Management shows favoritism towards employees that they like, At lot of harassment occurs and management does not do their job to prevent or alleviate such occurrences. HOSTILE work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Be up front in regards to pay and other procedures; It is quite unethical to portray advancement opportunities in the interview, and then when the time comes, you do not live up to such promises.

    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..

    Pros

    The people, the culture, the transparency. This is a great place to work, the corporate headquarters is not in a major city which can be a deterrent for people to initially consider Burlington, but just come out and visit our corporate campus - there is a great vibe here, everyone is having fun and enjoys the friendships and work relationships developed here. It makes the commute worthwhile!

    Cons

    I really have not found any
