"Working with the Burlington Coat Factory Team was great! I learned about retail clothing stores. They helped me improve my customer service skills. They also provided me with sanitary equipment while working during Covid-19, this made me feel safe. Unfortunately, the position was temporary, I believe after a few months, they were ready to promote me. The store was not the same upon leaving."
"DO NOT WORK FOR THIS COMPANY IF YOU HAVE ANY SELF RESPECT. The hiring process is terrible and by terrible I, can not if you can't speak English you are hired, they hire on the spot without and background or reference checks. The training is a JOKE!!! You are shown your job description for about 15 minutes, and then left hung out to dry. There is no room for advancement, and the leadership team (if you can call them that) are so self-absorbed in their own careers and playing grab-ass with one another that if it is not going to be beneficial to them whatever you say goes in one ear and out the other. Steer clear of this company unless you enjoy looking at your watch every 10 minutes only to be disappointed that time does not fly there and the job environment is TERRIBLE...So if you want to be miserable for 8 hours a day and the weekends, by all means, work here and the best part of your day will be starting your car to go home."
"I worked for this company in 2019 as a former employee. I recommend the managers to hire potential employee who really have a desire to work hard and passionate. And that the managers be more caring about helping new employees control a steady flow of impatient customers. Other than that all of their products are great!"
"I liked that place. it has a great manager, I always felt good there, managers always sought to help employees and treated all employees with kindness and respect."
"While I worked at Burlington Coat Factory as a Cashier and a Supervisor, I truly enjoyed my time working there. This company is great in terms of two things, flexibility and support. They are very flexible with your schedule and understand that you may have other things going on in your life, such as if you are a student and attending college. In terms of support, all the managers were very helpful. Anytime you were stuck or did something wrong they would be there to help and guide you."

"I love working for Burlington Coat Factory. The exposure I had has made me a great asset to any company. My team has great communication and team chemistry. My supervisor is the best boss I have ever had. It's hard leaving but need to grow my career further."
"First of all the managers don't care about us! They let full timers do whatever they want... and make receiving do everything they don't want to do!! They have a manager dating a receiving employee and she goes to the back every time receiving is unloading the truck, they do whatever they want, they kiss in front of people and the other managers don't tell them nothing, knowing they're not supposed to do that!! They treat people so unfair !"
"I have been working to Burlington for 2 weeks. They hired part time for 6 months and after 6 months you will be a full time employee. But many employees are quitting the job, so they will call the part time employees whenever they need you and they are expecting you to do other jobs besides cashiering, sometimes you are in charge on all the departments alone. If they want their employees to stay, they should pay more because it is not really reasonable that they overworked you and they just pay minimum wage. Also, the management is disorganized. Sometimes I don't know who are the supervisors coz I have many bosses, or should I say, they are all my boss. Imagine, you just get break 30 mins every 6 hours of working and you are constantly walking and standing the whole time!"
"I've worked for the company for 6 years now. I feel like it's great people to work with, good networking with co workers, very respectful adult crowd. Co workers are always on time and adjusting to new rules and regulations without having any trouble . Customers are well polite and respectful."
"I've worked for Burlington Stores for three exciting years during which we opened over 100 new stores, established a buying office in Southern California, and built a beautiful, brand-new corporate office in Florence, NJ. These large-scale organizational accomplishments, coupled with my appreciation and respect for the people I interact with daily, are what make Burlington worth writing about. Our company culture has evolved as we've grown, developing into one that genuinely values teamwork, innovative thinking, and rewarding hard work. The results of our annual associate engagement survey really speak for themselves - in most categories, our overall engagement levels have been above the retail norm. At Burlington, we are committed to delivering top brands at great values to our customers while creating a positive associate experience, and I am proud to be part of a team that is making it all happen."
"I have been with this company for 3 years."
"No support from management. As an assistant manager they expect you to work seven days a week, over 12 hours a day. The budget do not match the stores. The scheduling takes hours to match what they expect and then they ask you to cut more hours last minute, every single week. On top of that they have no idea how much load we have till a day before the truck, and we send people home or scramble for people to work every single week. The store managers are hired from outside with no experience and the DM's are the worst ever. RUN RUN."
"I worked for Burlington in 2008 to 2013. When I first started we had great management. After our original store manager transferred to a different location it became just a revolving door of managers. No advancement for employees. HR does not resolve issues; paid to keep quiet. Female store manager fired for theft. Worker comp injuries not handled at the job. Unsafe work environment. Corporate mgnt and regional staff don't care."
