Pros: the ability to meet new people
Cons: don't spend more than your paycheck is worth, it's addicting...lol, lol and the have layaway
I have worked there for 5 years and have made great friends(coworkers and customers). This place teaches you a lot about customer service and how to relate to customers. The hardest part of the job is relying on self control when it comes to purchasing merchandise because it is very affordable. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with my coworkers!!! I've made a few lifelong friends :)

Pros: flexible schedule.
Cons: benefits, the pay, and advancement
The workflow is great at Burlington. The schedule is flexible. Co-workers are great. The hardest part about the job and waiting and waiting for customers to get out of the place when closing and also cleaning after customers (adults, that is) constantly can be tedious and exhausting. Most enjoyable part is when the busy days come, the time goes by quick.

Cons: family time
A typical day for me was to come in every morning and make sure all the go backs go back on the floor for the customers. Make sure fitting rooms were empty and ready to. I have learned to have patience with management and with customers. The hardest part of my job is when my co-workers don't pull there weight with work. The best part of my job is meeting new customers.
