    I worked at Burlington Coat Factory

    Pros

    The company is really trying to make positive changes for training their employees. They are trying to make the computer system user friendly and more efficient to help with daily workload. Insurance benefits are quite good for full time employees.

    Cons

    Management is not very helpful. There is a lot of backstabbing and blame that takes place on a daily basis. This is very discouraging. Management should be there to help not to belittle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be supportive to your employees. Let them know they are appreciated.

    Pros

    Upper management is approachable they have an open door policy they make it a point to greet you. Very friendly and hard working associates. Processes are easy to follow and follow up on.

    Cons

    Stores are too large for the amount of payroll that is budgeted. Even though the associates work hard and smart the stores are messy due to the lack of payroll. The company is challenged when it comes to technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The stores need payroll.
