    Interview Details

    I applied online through their website which took a good 2hrs to complete. After the normal application there was a personality test and an intelligence test that was quite difficult and involve a lot of "word problems." A week or so later the Store Manager called and brought me in for an interview. About a week later HR called and gave me an interview, and another week later the RVP called and gave me an interview. I received an offer a few days later.

    Interview Details

    Non existent - They've had the position open for months and apparently have no interest in filling it; in speaking with current employees who reported to the former VP, there's no path for them to get to the VP position. They advised their career seems pointless unless they want to stay employed at thire current level indefinitely

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Burlington Coat Factory in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and interviewed through a job fair. I spent about 3 minutes with the initial interviewer asking the basic questions about experience, what did I know about the company, things like that. Based on my experience, I was sent on to the next person to be interviewed in more detail, which was more in depth as to my skills as a supervisor. There were a LOT of people there who did the basic interview and were not asked to speak with anyone else. I guess they didn't make the grade.

    Interview Questions
    • Why do you want to work for Burlington? Though I expected that question, there were a lot of people who didn't. They were just there for the job fair.   Answer Question
