While the company allows a flexible schedule it feels far to time consuming for the amount of pay you receive

I have been working at Express part-time for more than a year

Pros

Flexible hours
Management not to bad

Cons

Employee discount not really worth it (30%) but your low pay hardly allows you to buy anything if you've got bills to pay and plenty of other retail stores offer better discounts and higher pay
Closing the store at night can be extremely time consuming in a large store especially if not enough employees are working which happens regularly
Many sales assoc. come and go quite often as a result of the hours and pay, if the store is not doing well they will cut your hours in half which also happens far to often
management can be to adamant about opening credit cards and selling to customers, not a laid back sales approach, which would be reasonable if the assoc. were paid commission but they are not and rewards for sales virtually never happen

Advice to ManagementAdvice

better pay for sales associates and some guaranteed hours and commission

    I worked at Express part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Employee discount is great! I was able to acquire a lot of great clothes for low costs.

    Cons

    Minimum wage- most retail stores pay Sales Associates minumum wage, but it is always unfortunate. Can't live off of minimum wage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees as though they are valued and not just another person for the new hiring season.
