    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Express.

    Interview

    The interview was quick. The hiring manager was unorganized. You NEED references and it is a two interview process. The manager sometimes asked the interviewee to get their references to contact the hiring manager. That was a ridiculous request on their part. A lot of work for bad pay, poor management, and a not-so-luxurious brand.

    Co Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Express in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online, and two days later I received a phone call asking me to come in for an interview. During the call I asked "What position am I being considered for?". The manager replied "we can discuss in more detail during your interview". I asked that question because the Co manager and sales associate applications are the same, and there's no way to put your preference. When I get to the interview she ask what I was looking for, and of course I explained. She looked shock and said "oh, those positions are filled". I took off from work to be interviewed for a sales associate position? I work at a very high end department store in management...what would make her think that I want to be a sales associate. I'm truly lost, what make anyone think she works at a high end department for two years in management, that she'll be a great sales associate? Overall waste of an evening, for a 1 minute interview...and now I'm stuck in traffic.

    It was really easy though! Since it was my first time ever applying to a job, I was afraid. I was called in for an interview and agreed to come! Turns out it was a group interview with 3 other people. We went around taking turns while she asked the questions. I really thought I messed up, but I got a call today and she offered me the job!
