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.

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Express.

    Interview Details

    The interview was pretty low-key. The manager asked about my retail background and interests, as well as work-life balance and expectations for the job. He asked how I would handle different customer scenarios and what my objectives would be with each customer. I was interviewed with another potential employee, and we were both hired.

    Interview Questions
    • Asked if I would report a fellow employee's dishonest actions- of course I would.   Answer Question

    I doubt that there's any potential for negotiation at Express.
