    Pros

    Express is a fun and upbeat environment to work in! Most of the people who work there are very nice and friendly--you have to be to work there. It's a big company so there a tons of opportunities. You start out as an associate, but if you have a passion for styling and selling you can be promoted to a stylist which includes a pay raise! Love this company!

    Cons

    It's a very fast-paced environment and if you are not on the ball, someone will steal your spotlight.

    Advice to Management

    Hire less people so you can give employees more hours

    Pros

    The customers, and corporate are all delightful to work with.

    The hours are intense. You can work up to 60 hours a week.

    Advice to Management

    I think this job is great for someone who is single and really dedicated to their job. It will take a a lot of your time, but it will be rewarding.

    Pros

    Great team. Great company values. You learn a lot about sales, marketing, and great customer service. You get a good discount on items and during the holidays employees are treated very well with rewards!

    Cons

    Does not pay very well. Woman have to wear either sandals, boots, or heels. You destroy your shoes from standing for so long and minimum wage isn't really worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keeping on!

    Pros

    Amazing discount! I thought it was a great place to start in retail. Kept us informed about the product. I had great management.

    Cons

    I had a very positive experience. I was a newbie and felt very taken care of.

    Advice to Management

    I don't remember any programs of working your way up within the company. I wish more of that information had been available.
