    It has been a great eye opening experience, I can't say that I would work for another retail company.

    Pros

    I work with such knowledgeable people in a fun environment doing what I do well. Those above me know alot and are and have always been there to support me during my growth and promotions.

    Cons

    The only thing I would have to say is it is a demanding company if you get past the sales associate level. But at t he same token that's not necessarily a bad thing for me. For others it may be if you are unwilling to work hard. In order to play hard you must work hard. With all this hard work, I was blessed with the opportunity to grow and learn alot.

    I have been working at Express part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The best group of people I have ever worked with, and I have worked in various work industries...You have to be a team player; it all about going green on each segment. Great leadership--everyone wants you to succeed. They keep you in the loop. Great training that will help you to make those sales...

    Cons

    Flexible schedule, which can be expected when you work in retail...Overall, it wasn't as bad as it seems, because they try to accommodate my schedule (if you have school, etc...)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great management, who care about their employees!!!
