Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee), Elizabeth, NJ – May 14, 2013
Pros: you meet wonderful people who will help you get through stressful days.
Cons: not enough pay and sometimes not enough hours
typical day at work pretty much qualifies as recover and put things back on the floor if your a sales associate. for cashiers your main responsibility is keep your area clean and put your returns in there own bins.
Receiving Associate (Current Employee), Evansville, IN – May 12, 2013
I have enjoyed nothing about my experience at Burlington Coat Factory, the only reason I have stayed is because they work with my school schedule. There are never enough people scheduled for the store to run effectively. They claim to be a drug free work place, but they do not drug test. People openly use and sell drugs at work.
❸ Line leader (Current Employee), Cherry Hill, NJ – May 12, 2013
Pros: employee discount
Cons: availability of hours to work.
A typical day at work starts at 8:15 am, I go into the receiving room to prepare for the day's shipment. I unload the trucks and remove the boxes from the pallets. From here, the pricing tags are placed on the inventory. This begins the stocking portion of the day. I finalize anything that may be left undone before preparing to replenish the store's – more... inventory for sales.
Most of this job was new to me and I learned the shipping/receiving end of retail while working for my previous employer. Management with this company is typical. They are involved in overseeing shipping/receiving tasks. Co-workers are involved in daily activities and are given different tasks in shipping.
The hardest part of my job was unloading the pallets as they can be really heavy at times and adding sensors to the inventory as they involved using sharp pins. While I cannot say that these tasks are really difficult, it would be the portion of a typical day that provided some degree of difficulty. The most enjoyable part of the job was working alongside my co-workers, who offered support and fostered healthy work relationships with each other. – less
Customer Service Supervisor (Former Employee), Mission Viejo, CA – May 12, 2013
Pros: good work environment
Cons: slow corporate ladder
This job was great for me to start out in retail. At a certain point it becomes hard to move up because people stay for quite awhile. My coworkers were very friendly and it was fun to work with customers.

Pros: there is no pros to this company
Cons: your treated unfair
the management is horrible, they treat the employee's and coustomers disrespectfully. I dont understand how burlington coat factory still is able to be open for buisness. i have gotten hurt while on the job and they told me to work faster. also management has sexual relations with the employees. just not right. the corporate doesn't know anything about – more... running a buisness they just want MONEY AND DONT CARE FOR THE EMPLOYEES struggles and works hard daily to make the company money. never will work or refer anyone to burlington coat factory. – less
Very Productive and an exciting atmosphere to work
Retail Loss Prevention Manager (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PA – May 8, 2013
I worked at the Gallery location, and I must say that the staff and management was truly like a family. Managers were always complimenting the staff and willing to help out. The staff was very knowledgeable about the items that were being sold in his or her department. And the staff excelled in customer service. The only negative is that the pay was – more... not that high, but the perk was being paid every week. – less
Fun working place, time went by quickly, interesting customers, and store always busy.
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Jacksonville, FL – May 8, 2013
Pros: upper management worked hard and easy to get along with.
Cons: short lunches, very low pay and not enough hours.
Never a bored moment at this job. My days went by rapidly each day I clocked in. I had a project to work on each day. This job required flexibility at all times. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting customers of different culture and fulfilling their needs in helping them choose the merchandise of satisfaction. I learned to accept people just – more... as they are and not to be judgemental against anyone. My co-workers all was very hardworking people most of all they were easily to get along with. Very fun co-workers lots of energy. – less
