This place will leave workers underpaid and overworked. The schedule was never consistent and interfered with my sleeping patterns. The most possible hours are during Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons, but hours are still quickly cut. You can be removed from the the schedule on the weekend at the last minute and management will not call to warn you, wasting your gas and time. Workers are rude to customers. Too much gossip and drama there, without benefits or decent pay. If you are not retiring but need a tiny part time check for the moment, accept the job while still doing applications elsewhere and going to college. Workers always quitting there. It is difficult to get breaks and lunches on time because plenty ignore you on the walkie.

The job actually is very straightforward you're told to do a task and complete in a certain amount of time. Usually you Ethier would be on the sale floor recovering your specific assigned area or you be up at the front being a cashier. The issues mostly are an organization, their times their no supervisor and over tie many full timers and assistant manager would leave or transfer. The closing also has issues due to the sometimes lack of worker scheduled to close and the expectation of work done in a short amount of time. This leads to workers leaving later than they expected too. The hardest part sometimes is meeting expectations of the store manager

Terriable structure & customer service. There was me since of priority. Nor was there equal opportunity for all employees. Just a temporary job, that can't stay clean, nor structured when it comes to service

I would mostly come in and do the same thing each day. I only worked 5 hours so It wasn't bad and I got to choose my hours. I had to wear all black as a uniform . I helped customers when needed and restocked and reorganize for my 5 hours and would do the same in repeat each day.
I don't have nothing to say I worked there for a while it was not for me managers were ok some were straight mean The main boss was older as he'll and didnt kno what was going on in his store. They don't give you paid time off or vacation days. No benefits
I enjoy my job, never a dull day. I honestly love and enjoy the always busy, running around and organizing parts of the job! My management and my supervisors are kind, understanding and all around very kind and east going, true leaders and i am so lucky to have landed this job .
It started off great, but the management is absolutely terrible. Management was very disorganized and they never aided their employees needs. Managers got rude towards my ending period so it drove me to not return
Full Time Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Linden, NJ – July 9, 2018
A typical day at Burlington would be to clock in, grab walkie talkie, place merchandise on the sales floor, assist customers and possibly ring up customers on the register if needed. I learned how to be a lead over Sales Associates and to take care of multiple departments at once. The job is easy and hands on learning. The most challenging part would be to ring on the register because I never had experience doing that before working here. The most enjoyable part is placing new merchandise on the sales floor and setting up displays according to holidays and seasons.

They don't care if you are busy in your department, they will take you out of your department and then make you go to a different department to work in it and then make you go back to your department to clean it up after working in a different department all day
Full Time Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – June 23, 2018
I worked there for about 4 months and this was my second job. Customers were rude 24/7 and management was never around to even help with anything. Nobody else would help you even at night time felt like I was basically doing my department by myself.
Burlington was a safe and fun productive work environment it helped me over come my many fears and it also helped me learn new things and meet new people. It was very challenging at first but my coworkers and my managers all were there to help me and to motivate me.
Since the first day at Burlington I felt a connection with everyone and there was absolutely no hesitation whenever I would ask for help. This is why I love Burlington. We not only treat each other like family, but every single customer who shops at our store. I appreciate the fact that this company took time to train me and teach me everything I need to know
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Tempe, AZ – June 19, 2018
During my time there I was a full-time college student making $7.00 an hour being required to close down multiple departments by myself. Unfortunately BCF has a history of taking advantage of their employees and staff members. Working in departments that are as big as some stores in the mall, then being required to upkeep fitting rooms and floor was a constant struggle of appeasement with management.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Daytona Beach, FL – June 19, 2018
Fairly easy work. Good for younger people or those who have retired and need something part time. Messy inventory being that is a discount store. Lots of customers stealing. Management was serious but okay.

Typical retail job on 14th street. Wear comfortable shoes for sure. I learned major conflict resolution skills from observing supervisors along with experiencing events of my own dealing with conflict.
Sales Associate (Current Employee) – San Diego, CA – June 18, 2018
I'm currently a new employee here and so far management has been amazing and working with me on days I need off. As well as back up payment types through the company. The most enjoyable part of the job for me is meeting new people and interacting with coworkers. The only thing about the job I have been having trouble with is the dress code because I currently don't have money to but new work clothes.
