overall an excellent place to work except the work schedule
Accountant (Current Employee), Laredo, TXJune 26, 2014
Pros: friendly environment
Cons: work schedule
• Make the daily, weekly, and monthly reports, deposits, and all the other paperwork the auditor needed.
• I keep the safes balanced, and ask for change from the bank to the safe and the supervisors’ change drawer.
• Manage all the cashiers to ensure accountability with each register, and make a report of every detail.
• Charge customers when needed, – more... and go the floor to help the sales representative when needed as well.
• Manage my crew in unloading the freight, keeping track on what merchandise we are receiving is the same that’s on paper, organize both warehouses, take out merchandise to the floor, and sensor, price, hang, and separate all merchandise in the back of house. – less

Life @ BCF Cherry Hill,NJ
Markdown Associate (Current Employee), Cherry Hill, NJJune 25, 2014
Pros: employee discounts on holidays and a nice work environment.
Cons: dealing with difficult customers.
A typical day is 8 to 4 and nonstop. I have learned all receiving steps as well as markdown procedures. I can make tags do debits cashier and help customers. Our manager is caring and professional and strides to make all employees feel like family. My co workers are engaging and friends. The hardest part of my job is dealing with difficult or crazy – more... customers with patience. The most enjoyable part of my job is being the Official Birthday cake maker for receiving and all. – less

adjustable scheduling
auditor/CSS (Current Employee), West Saint Paul, MNJune 25, 2014
I have had the pleasure of meeting some very interesting people, both employees and customers. Most days are very busy and even if the customer flow is slow there are always things that need taking care of to keep busy.

The hardest part of the job is not being able to have more of a say in what merchandise arrives in the store.

High Turnover
Shoe Sales Associate (Former Employee), Fort Wayne, INJune 22, 2014
Cons: bad management
The management is horrible. Some of the people in management positions do not deserve to be in their position. They all crack under pressure. Customer service is horrible and some of the employees are not mindful of the customers.

Pros: friendly environment and adequate pay
Cons: n/a
Typical day at work where you learned new stuff everyday. Management was outstanding and under control and you get along with your co-workers. The hardest part of the job was having to stand for long amount of hours and the most enjoyable part of the job was helping and satisfying day to day customers finding what they came for

Receiving (Current Employee), Sunrise, FloridaJune 20, 2014
Pros: i don't think there is an pros when working in receiving at burlington.
Cons: not enough hours, go over payroll mostly every week or two.
The job it self is easy, There isn't any hard parts of it, my co-workers are respectable, cool and fun to work with, i'v never had a bad day besides having to leave because they went over the payroll which happens at least once every week or two it gets on my nerves because i only get 20 hours a week and pay is $8.25 an hour...

Overall decent place to work
Sales Representative (Former Employee), Cincinnati Mills MallJune 20, 2014
Come in for the day and figure out what to do. Learned how to be flexible and help other areas when there was spare time. Management was good at communicating what needed to be done to employees that were there at the time but not the ones that weren't. Some coworkers were good and some were bad. Hardest part was unloading freight. Most enjoyable part – more... was completing a project and helping customers find what they wanted. – less

Worst company ever
Customer Service Associate (Former Employee), Durham, NCJune 19, 2014
Cons: unprofessional, rude employees, no structure, no team players
This Job was the worst employment I have ever had. Some people in their were ok but this job was truly the definition of no structure. The employees were very rude and took very long lunches and breaks not considering the other employees that had to wait on them to get back. Everything was unprofessional about BCF and I was happy to leave.
