Pros

Most of the people I worked with were amazing, but of course Express has a high employee turnover rate so I got stuck working with other people that I disliked as well. I really liked upselling to my customers because I liked the clothes and knew it well..

Cons

The pay is not good. It's minimum wage and I believe it should have been higher. I also think Express, at least in its retail stores, has bad company culture. Didn't like it at all, and I would never want to do corporate.

    Pros

    - Great associate discounts (30% off, new quarter weekends give us 45% off)
    - Good upbeat music
    - Friendly co-workers and generally friendly managers
    - Fashionable store, love the style
    - Love the creativity I can put into my work outfits
    - 5 hour shifts... better than other retail places with 3 or 4 hr shifts

    Cons

    - Pressure to meet goals to "go green" and extreme pressure for the Express Credit Card
    - No recognition for doing a good job, but a lot of criticism for things you do wrong
    - BAD HOURS. Despite the 5 hour shifts, you'll probably only work one or two days out of the week. Many associates have second jobs because of this.
    - Many on-call hours, which they don't even use 99% of the time.
    - Managers play favorites.
    - Bad pay and bad hours for such expensive clothes.
    - No discount on red tag items.

    Advice to Management

    rid the on-call hours and have better training for new associates. I didn't really know how to "sell" until a new quarter meeting where an old associate helped me with how to sell and add on
