    Interview Details

    Though its a 1on1 interview, someone might also be in there. I was nice and they're really comfortable to talk with. They do don't show off as intimidating which makes it a whole lot easier for the person being interview. The questions were quite easy thankfully.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Burlington Coat Factory.

    Interview Details

    Back when I first applied it was very easy, you filled out a paper application then were interviewed. Now I believe you must apply online and pass an assessment, if they do not call back you didn't pass the assessment. Very easy to get hired, most people don't have any education and they don't seem to do background/drug checks.
    Interview questions are EASY.

    Interview Questions
    • (assuming you worked retail) how do you respond to change on the sales floor?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There wasn't really any negotiating done, if you get hired for a supervisor position try to ask for more than current minimum wage + 1 dollar or else thats what they'll pay you.
