Worst job you'll ever have. Benefits suck. Health Insurance that's not even accepted by the local county hospital for the poor. Expect to be treated like the "enemy" by the management staff. Complete lack of communication between upper management (corporate HQ) and the stores. Emphasis on stupid minute details while overlooking the bigger picture. Dangerous back room work environments that routinely violate OSHA regs. Continuously hiring and firing store level management staff because their systems and processes are fatally flawed. Outdated state of the art 1980's & 1990's computer systems. Register Checkout systems that can't even accept a chip card without crashing. Outdated inventory control systems. 99% of all UPC codes don't even scan in the cash register system, resulting in extremely long lines because of price checks. Everything is always done half-way/half assed. Front end is always underfunded so you will spend 95% of your shift running register. If you want to be a cashier, go work for Aldi they start their cashiers out at $16 an hour vs Burlington's minimum wage - and you'll be a lot happier.

The morale is poor, associates and managers are stressed all the time. Nothing ever gets accomplished due to the constant floor moves. Retaliation is alive & you cant trust anyone or seek help from anyone or else you could get held accountable and lose your job.

Awful. Managers do not listen to issues you have and brush off your problems because all they care about is filling in hours. Will not consider how long you have been working for a certain day or how many hours you have worked all week because they just care about getting hours taken care of. There will be massive amounts of work to do with only one person to do them while they’re also still expected to do extra work that a manager is asking to be done before their shift is over. Feelings and personal matters are not taken into consideration and

Coworkers can be cool and laid back, others are rude and will try to get you to do their job for them (mostly the older associates). Management is rude, they don’t listen to their associates and are “clueless” when people quit or leave. They also lack communication. The pay is extremely low and they’ll expect you to do a four person job your self. Customers are rude, and they think you owe them something. If customers don’t get their way they’ll be verbally abusive. In conclusion they’re a very selfish company, they don’t see you as human, but rather an object.
