    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Express in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    I went in for a interview with express and had to wait a while for another person that didn't show. The hiring manager came out and we sat on a bench by the store. It felt more like a conversation than a interview. I think I did well :)

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

    Interview Details

    I filled out an application on a Thursday I believe, and received a phone call on that Saturday. I had an interview the following Tuesday, and I start on Friday. The managers were really nice. They made everyone feel comfortable. It was a group interview. I would say dress up like you already work that. Also, they call references. It earns you brownie points if you bring a typed out reference sheet. I was the only one who brought one out of the other 2 candidates.

    Express Sales Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Express.

    Interview Details

    I applied for Express online and I got a call back within a week. I went to the interview and it wasn't anything like I was expecting. I had to look for the manager who made me wait. Usually when I got to interviews I am interviewed in the stock room or the back of the store. But the hiring manager interviewed me on the sales floor ! she was also talking to customers while interviewing me. it made me uncomfortable. I didnt even have to take off my coat. she also greeted me with a limp handshake. Overall, the experience was bad and unprofessional. it was a waste of time considering the interview probably only lasted about 2-3 minutes. 4 minutes max because she was talking to customers.

    I applied online – interviewed at Express in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was easy. I did not receive a call for days, so I called the store for follow up, eventually I was able to speak to manager who told me I did not have enough energy. What?. The interview was one of the best retail interview I have had in a while.

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Express in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    The interview was quick and relaxed. I didn't feel like there was a lot of pressure. There was simple questions, and I was offered a position at the end of my interview. They just had to call a reference before they could officially offer a position. No drug test. I'm not sure if they did a background check.
