Pros

the discount is great (30% with extra discounts available at specific times- up to 50%), very friendly staff and management team, fairness with scheduling

Cons

they push the credit envelope a little too hard sometimes, closing is sometimes made more difficult than it should be, must request off at least two weeks in advance

Advice to ManagementAdvice

keep up the good work, maybe try to recognize good work of the employees a little more as to set standards that others can try to obtain

    Definitely a stepping stone, not a milestone

    Pros

    Most of my managers treat me well and recognize the work I do. Also the discounts are good on top of promotions (excluding clearance) and there can be a lot of opportunities to move up from associate to fashion expert, or associate to sales lead.

    Cons

    Management doesn't seem to schedule well. Had to close many nights during week despite being a Fashion Expert. DM doesn't seem to promote employees who are specialists (advanced cashiers or fashion experts) and therefore not worth sticking aorund for too long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Definitely hire better talent and pay them better.

    Over Worked and No Appreciation by Senior Management

    Pros

    The best reason to work for Express, LLC is the 40% plus discount on clothing.

    Cons

    Major downsides were the high level of pressure and stress that is put on associates in the corporate office. You are expected to work 60-70 hours a week, but there is no appreciation shown for doing a good job. Associates are overall unhappy which leads to high turnover and low morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be beneficial for the company to hire managers who have good management skills and who have experience managing staff members. When you have good managers that provide positive feedback to associates, the morale will be higher and there wouldn't be such a high turnover of employees.
