    I have been working at Express part-time (more than an 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!!!

    I have been working at Express part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are so many. I love the people I work/worked. They have become a part of my life and they have taught me a lot. The fast pace work environment keeps me on my toes. There are even some customers I love. The regular shoppers that make work easier and peaceful are the best. Helping them find new items and making outfits can be fun. Plus the discount doesn't hurt.

    Cons

    As retail is known for you have a large amount of cons. The rude customers are going to be at the top of the list. It's always going to happen but you have to keep calm and carry on. Literally. Another con can be the hour flux. One week you may have some hours another week a ton. As long as you work hard to keep your store positive the hours will come. Promotions do take some time. Unfortunate you have to put yourself out there and make sure the higher managers approve of your loyalty then rather your work ethics. Raises should be more then twenty five cents per year. Also starting off at minimum wage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When making promises of moving up make sure you follow through.
