    interviewed at Express in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I came in and it was a pretty basic interview. It started off with getting to know me and that stuff. They asked me about their companies' goals and stuff like that. In the end, dont negotiate your salary if you do not have any prior experience working as a sales associate anywhere else.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Express in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Went in today for an interview, arrived 30 minutes early. The interview took only about 10 mins, I was asked about previous work experience in retail. 10 mins later got a call to come to orientation from 5pm-9pm this coming Friday! Overall they are looking for friendly people who can work at a fast pace. I actually buy a lot from express so the hiring manager noticed my clothing, guess that helped out a little too. I went dressed in executive/formal clothing.

    Negotiation Details
    If you have no retail experience don't negotiate your salary. Everyone starts at $8:25, at least here in NJ.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Express in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and got a call a few days later for Interview. I did my research and figured it would be a piece of cake. However none of the questions I was expecting were asked. The manager spent most of the time talking about the company, then proceeded to ask us one company we would not recommend to others and then one that we would. Then she asked about the last job we had and said she'll call if she was interested.

    Interview Details

    Process took three days. I applied early morning, got a call in the afternoon and got a call to set up and interview for the next day. I met with the manager wearing a a simple black shirt with black pants with a chunky necklace. The manager opening interview question was, "Why Express?" followed by, What do you think customer service consists of? What was the best customer service that you have experienced? What will you bring to the table? What is different about you? What are you going to school for?

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Express in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Saw an ad in the store stating that they were hiring, and I was advised to complete an application online. After submitting my application, I got a call the next day to schedule my interview and give names of two references. The interview itself lasted about 15-20 minutes and consisted of basic interview and "what would you do if..." questions, nothing too difficult. After she called my references, the lady I interviewed with called me back with a job offer!

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Express.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and received a call back after a few days for a group interview. The group interview went smoothly, was about 7-9 people and we took turns answering questions. Questions included:
    Why do you want to work here?
    How would you be described in a high school reunion in three words?
    What's the difference between selling a product and customer service?
    It took about 20 minutes total for the interview. I received a call asking for a reference, and a week later was offered the position.
    Overall was a friendly yet to the point interview :)
    Very excited to be working for Express!

    Interview Questions
    • Is the customer always right?
      I liked this question because we got some varied answers in our group. I wouldn't consider it a difficult question, but just to provide something here.
