sometimes you will end up doing 5 different jobs for the pay rate of one most of the people that work there are nice the hardest part of the job would be the customer yelling at you because the lines are HUGE


some managers are nice

Great coworkers but poor management and scheduling issues

Overworked, only 1 cashier scheduled on Friday afternoons when store is busy but everyone else will be working the back room with no one on the sales floor and everyone is overworked and underpaid. Management will make snide comments and follow customers to their car to try to get positive surveys and some employees may not even be on the schedule for 3 weeks at a time or only scheduled 1-2 days a week. Expectations are not met for what you are told you would be scheduled, they don’t check availability and management does not take calls but are always on their phones and they say no one wants to work but will not schedule employees to work. If you call in for whatever reason they make you feel like they don’t care and forget about you.


15% discount and coworkers are great people


Underpaid only one 30 minute lunch during an 8 hour shift, overworked, poor management, no training

Not the best place to work.

I was a flex worker who worked nights, ran go-backs, and I operated on register for backup. It was a basic retail job but the place was always a mess and it was understaffed because the store never receives enough hours. Sometimes they would also cut hours at last minute. It also gets overwhelming dealing with some of the terrible customers that come in to shop there. Most of my supervisors were good at doing their job for the most part. Store management sucked at listening to the employees’ issues. I felt overworked and underpaid working there. Other than that I did love the small team of great coworkers I got to meet and work with on my shifts. There were some bad coworkers too but I tend to distance myself from them because of their constant crass negativity and their rude attitude. It was ridiculous. I wouldn’t recommend working for this company unless you’re completely broke and you really have no other choice. You also have to closely make sure you get paid correctly because they tend to mess up their payroll a lot and you won’t get paid the accurate time you were working for or you will have to wait until the following week to get the next time in. Their pay is poor for the work I was expected to do, I only get on schedule for about 2-3 days a week even after requesting to management that I have more availability, there’s no benefits besides a 15 off discount, and I’ve gotten no opportunities for advancement during the amount of time I’ve been working there.


Discount, Coworkers

Tedious and repetitive but productive workplace

I only worked there part time for over the summer but the work was very tedious and demanding. If you like doing stuff over and over again then do this job. It keeps you moving and productive but fast paced.

Very bad experience, no trading, underpaid, messes up payroll earnings every week.

Burlington is the worse job experience ever. Your payroll earnings are are never right Always messing your hours & money up & then you have to wait to the next paying cycle to get your money. The store is unorganized & you never receive any training. It’s a whole mess. I would never recommend anyone to go seek employment there.




Underpaid& payroll always messed up, unorganized, bad for business

It's ok, hours are sparse

I personally enjoy working here, it's not a bad place to be. Its interesting, there's some repetitive work but its decent work if you happen to not hate clothing retail. Schedule changes every night, which can be annoying. And hours can change a lot week by week, its absolutely not a stable job. Its just about never full time hours there ever, unless you're a manager.


Decent encouraging managers, nice breakroom


Really inconsistent hours

Hours were never stable

Pay is weekly but had it downside with understaff and micromanagement. Hours varied week to week. , which will make paying rent difficult. You can not leave on your end time if you work closing shifts

Management doesn't know what they're doing, however most of the employees are nice and it's easy work

Management was very bad, they schedule people the day they have to come in. The store is such a mess that they tell you on the way in that they don't expect you to be able fix it. Most of the employees are nice and pretty friendly.

Burlington is decent depending on the location but this location in specific is too demanding and requires you to do a lot of work for little pay. Also, you will MOST DEFINITELY get your hours cut if you're not on the managers good side.

It was a very good work environment. I got to work alone for the most part and I enjoyed that. Management was nice and understanding. If I planned on staying for a long time I think there would have definitely been room for career advancement.

Fun place to work, treated like family

I was hired several months ago in May and this is the first place I've worked where I actually feel appreciated and recognized. I enjoy my job and I love my coworkers. Management is great also. Very easy to talk to and understanding and cooperative. Never a bad day!!

Unprofessional management

managers will try to guilt you if you have to miss work due to child being sick, they screw over your schedule, don’t contact new hires in timely manner


Weekly pay


Management, scheduling, environment

Fun work place but stuck in management h*ll

people were fun but how do you expect for someone to work if you don’t have any main management and the schedule is up in the air and supervisors expect you to know everything on your second day (first day of actual work)
