    Pros

    One dollar more than a regular associate. It is a tier below management and with the proper management team you are given management responsibilities. Not commission based. Simple work. Great music playing to dance too

    Cons

    It may be a dollar more pay, but the pay is still horrible. You do too much work, especially if you are good associate and get paid nothing. You will be stuck in this position forever as much as they say you will be promoted, you will be here for at least 2-3 years before a position that is attainable is available. You will not make any proper money unless you are officially on the management team

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay the people who work hard more money, because competitors will offer more money to good associates and you will lose them to the competition. I have seen this various times, Express LLC is a store you can start out with and gain the skills, but you cannot stay with. Management always picks favorites and everything becomes a you vs them atmosphere. When you say you are going to do something and promote/give raise to actually do it. OR don't tell us at all until it is set in stone. Express LLC is notorious for saying something and not going through with it.

    Pros

    Good discount - 30%, sometimes 50
    Friendly employees
    keep up with the latest trends in fashion
    you get to wear an ear piece...

    Cons

    no hours whatsoever... this could just be the store i worked at
    my manager was crazy, I have no idea how she got the job (although I think she's gone now)
    No communication between manager and employees
    wasn't treated with respect at all
    expected to talk to EVERYONE who walked through the doors - I know it annoyed customers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be better to your employees - although the majority of the employees are "kids," we are also the life-force of the company
    When we ask for more hours, don't give me 0 and then not explain why - this is why I quit the job
