A job to pick if if your interested in working with and helping people.
Customer Service Cashier (Current Employee), Philadelphia, PAApril 8, 2015
Talking to customers about the latest trends has to be the most enjoyable part of the job. I learned that if you are really in to fashion this is not the job for you because you'll end up spending every paycheck on many of the great buys. I work with a lot of great people. Overall its what I expected it to be for a 1st job.

Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee), Ontario, CAApril 7, 2015
This was my first job that I had to approach customers so it took me out of my comfort zone. It made me more out going and into my own person. Taught me how to talk to people in a way that they wanted what we were selling.

Greeting and assisting customers in their area (Current Employee), Daytona Beach, FLApril 6, 2015
Pros: Flexible hours
Cons: management
Depending on the shift I am assign, regulates how my day goes. Working early morning shifts are the best because there is more work to be done which makes the day go by fast.
For the most part, I work during the evenings when much work isn't needed to be done in the store. The most enjoyable part of my job is the interaction with others, whether it be my co-workers or customers, their conversations are usually friendly and keep me going through my day.

Supervisor (Current Employee), Westborough, MAApril 5, 2015
Pros: flexiable with shedules
Cons: low staff, high turnover rate due to payrate
Good place to work. The pay rate should be more for the amount of work certain positions. Management is very good with giving hours when needed or giving time off when needed.

Extremely productive and fun job.
Layaway Associate (Former Employee), Brownsville, TXApril 3, 2015
Pros: Working more than three days straight.
Cons: Not enough hours during the week.
Working at Burlington was the best job I have had so far. My typical days would be clocking in, already feeling the great vibe around, and enjoy doing my job. As a layaway associate I learned a lot how to talk to customers because not only did I collect customers' items to layaway, but I also greeted them at the main entrance as soon and they walked in and help them locate the items they want to see. The managers are always around the store looking to help, whether it is a coworker or a customer. The coworkers were very straight forward in doing their respective job. The hardest part of the job was whenever I closed the store. The store had to have all areas clean and neat, and it takes a while. The most enjoyable part of the day was helping customers because it feels great seeing them satisfied after you help them.

Good Experience
Customer Service Associate (Former Employee), Bronx, NYApril 3, 2015
Pros: Great retail experience
Cons: Short breaks and long hours
As a college sophomore, I worked retail on weekends working around 14 hours a week. Six hours on Saturday and 8 on Sunday. A typical day at work was nonstop movement, which included ringing up customers, making returns on the floor, and directing customers to different floors for the item they were looking for. It was an incredibly demanding job and I developed a thick skin from it as I often times had to deal with unpleasant customers. My co-workers and managers were always helpful and supportive, constantly willing to lend a hand. The hardest part of the job was constantly being up on my feet. The most enjoyable part was forming bonds with my coworkers.

Customer Service Cashier (Current Employee), Hanover, MdMarch 31, 2015
I am a customer service cashier who deals with different obstacles everyday. They range from simple returns to outrages customers. I have to make decisions on if discounts are appropriate for the damage merchandise. I have to deal with layaways and make sure they are properly placed. Management are very unorganized but they are helpful to an extent.

Customer Care Associate (Former Employee), Mobile, ALMarch 30, 2015
A typical day at Burlington consisted of assisting customers with merchandise and processing their transaction. I learned hear how to deal with different personalities in the workplace. The management team was helpful at times, but at times they were under stress. My co-workers and I got along very well. The hardest part of the job was dealing with irate customers (which was my first encounter). I learned how to deal with them better. The most enjoyable part of this job was assisting customers with decisions.
