    Interview

    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 3 weeksinterviewed at Express (Miami, FL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Outside the store in the mall. Very laid back one on one. I applied online and relieved a call in about 2-3 weeks. Manager called and asked me to come in the same day for interview. I came and we sat outside in the mall and spoke for ten minutes. A week later he called and offered me position. When I came to do orientation..he said he needed to call one of my references first before he could officially hire me. That annoyed me.

    Express Sales Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Express (Brooklyn, NY).

    Interview

    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. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Express in January 2015.

    Interview

    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.
