What don't you like about working at Burlington Coat Factory?
"Low pay, managers make $16 per hour, assistant managers maybe get up to $20 if they are lucky. Raises are crap, if you are rated at 'outstanding' you get a whopping 50 cent raise, and most ees get 10 cent raises. Regional managers preach 'promote from within' but constantly hire from the outside. This is not a career, but just a crap job to get by. The company was hit with a huge class action lawsuit and the original owners decided to run and sold the company. As a result, there were layoffs, store closures, and restructuring due to their incompetence. Theft in their stores is rampant yet their loss prevention teams watch the doors instead of doing real LP work. There are are no organized communication channels, it seems like they have several VPs and Directors at the corp office who all want things done their way without any thought behind their ideas. If their stores were run like Macy's it would be much better."
What suggestions do you have for management?
"Run the company like a true corporation instead of a mom and pop shop."
