I Would Say Everything Is Bad About The Store. The Managers Do Not Care About Their Employees, Less Hours & Days. Everybody Is To Themselves Or Angry, People Gossip, Bad Communication From Everyone, Breaks Are Short, The Customers Are Rude & Disrespectful, The Managers Doesn't Trained You As Well. Managers Pressure You To Get The Job Done. They Fired People Quick Over Petty Things. They Also Get Rid Of Good Workers For No Reason, Im One Of Them. The Manager I Experienced Would Create Conflict On Purpose Just To Get You Fired. She Would Harass Me, Threatening Me, Yelling & Screaming, & Stalk Me Over A Misunderstanding. I Don't See How She Still Has The Job When She Was Acting Unprofessional. Either Way, The Store Itself Is Dysfunctional & Have Mentally Sick People. I Worked At Union Square NY, I Advise People To Don't Work There. It's Bad Vibes & Bad Management. The Future Of That Store Isn't Bright.

The morale is very low here. Everyone seems miserable or angry all the time. Besides that its a very stressful place to work; managers do not seem to care about their employees. Everything they do is for their benefit or the benefit of the company. Breaks are short, work load is very heavy and compensation is so low for the amount of work you do. There is constant pressure on you to get things done and not everyone works together. Most times it’s a few hard working people picking up the slack of all the other lazy employees. The store also smells and looks terrible. There’s always things on the floor, employees walk right past the things and don’t care or are just to fed up to keep picking things up over and over again. It’s just overall a horrible place to work.

I have worked for Burlington off and on in seasonal positions for about 6 years working in receiving. It's very fast-paced and the pay is really low. $9 per hour and work starts at 6am. They have a "number" of boxes they need to unpack and put out and some days you have 5 people and some days you have 2 people. People call in sick all the time and turnover is really high. That 5:00 alarm comes early and you're not going in to sit at a desk, you're going in to lift 30 - 40 pound boxes of shoes, open 200 - 250 boxes of stuff and put it out on the sales floor.

I think the worst part is that they start at 6am, but you don't get a break until 9:30 and man... after an hour of opening boxes as fast as you can... you could use a break of just 5 minutes to catch your breath, but then you go out to the sales floor and open MORE boxes of stuff and by the time 9:30 hits... you're running out of gas.

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.
