My first time in retail and it has been a really good experience.

Part Time Sales Lead (Current Employee)

Pros30% discount on everything except clearance. They pay close attention to talent. If you do what you're supposed to do and there is an opening for management they will recommend you. You don't need a degree in sales and they treat you with respect. You can grow with the company. We are a team. I love they're clothes!

Cons$8.50 minimum hourly wage to start, not a lot of hours, hours are based on how much money the store makes and because of the amount of employees on the roster, you may only get 4-8hrs a week. :-( Employees cannot combine coupons with discount and are encouraged to use discount instead of coupons. You don't get commission. Part time Sales lead only gets $10/hr (to start but they may offer more based on experience) They don't like to say how much management gets paid, it's not allowed apparently so you won't know exactly what you're working towards.

Advice to Senior ManagementTell employees the benefits of staying and growing with the company. How much are you all getting paid?? People work harder when they know that it is worth it.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

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


    Pros: Best thing about working at Express part-time is that they can't schedule you outside of your availability, no matter how limited. Oh, except for Black… Cons: Management can be a pain in the side, and believe me, they have A LOT to do… Advice to Senior Management: Give some things a break. Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
