    Lots of job opportunities if you work hard

    Brand Co-Manager (Current Employee)
    Sacramento, CA

    ProsThere is a ton of energy in all the stores and being able to work with people with the same fashion and passions makes work fun. There seems to always be an opportunity to move up or learn a new division of responsibility which makes consistent growth a plus.

    ConsMinimum wage is expected at an entry level job however the tasks and energy needed for success here is more then that. Express needs to offer their associates above minimum wage to help keep associate retention.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlanning is difficult in this brand so being proactive versus reactive can be a challenge. My recommendations is to communicate to the store level in a more efficient and timely manner.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Depends on what you do

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe most enjoyable part of the job, ironically, was also the customers. I've met and made plenty of people, made loyal customers come back for more and always had a fun time. Fashion, co workers and discount.

    ConsHardest part of the job was dealing with difficult customers and inventory. long hours, no direction/communication.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMy experience with Express Fashion was fun and easy although I only worked seasonal I they gave me my first chance to work in retail. The managers are the best and make your working experience enjoyable.

    typical retail job

    Express Sales Associate (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    Prosit's a fun working environment, the management team was cool, you get a 30% discount, the scheduling is flexible, if you ask for a day off, you will get it off as long as you request off in advance

    ConsThey make you shove credit cards at customers, and will sometimes get annoyed if you don't get any. They'll tell you that you will get a pay raise, then it takes as long to actually get it as it did for them to mention it, but its not much anyway so its not that big of a deal

    An amazing company that gives challenging, yet rewarding work and lots of opportunity to move up.

    Brand Co-Manager (Current Employee)
    Detroit, MI

    ProsAll managers and higher-ups want you to succeed. You are provided with a wide variety of tools and are always able to contact peers and other managers for help. There is a true feeling of community from store to store, and from the company as a whole. Also, a very fashionable and friendly atmosphere that always make work fun!

    ConsThere are not any cons that I can think of, but if you think this is going to be a simple job, I wouldn't apply. This position requires lots of time, energy, and dedication. If you are lazy this job is not for you.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great Place!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsMy experience may be different because I was pretty siloed from the rest of the other departments, so I don't know what went on anywhere else... but my boss and the people around me were really fun and great.

    ConsToo siloed from the other departments.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSponsor more activities in which everyone can get to know one another better.
