I worked at Burlington Stores full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Good merchandise offering for a lower end box. Company has improved IT dramatically in recent years.

Cons

Too much management turnover. Little promotion from within from store to regional level. The company is hiring regional management with little or no softline experience. People in regional staff positions like HR think they're line managers with authority over areas they have no expertise in. Full time hourly store positions have been cut too much. It's like there's a concerted effort to eliminate the company's institutional memory.

Advice to Management

Promote from the stores. Stop running off the "legacy" managers and staff that actually built the company. Hire regional managers that know softline discount retailing. Full time people are the backbone of good customer service.

    I worked at Burlington Stores (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I got paid every week.

    Cons

    The managers and supervisors didn't value their subordinates in any way. There is always a high turnover in the hiring process at this company.

    Advice to Management

    Management should listen and respond to customer reviews and hold certain employees accountable.
