I worked at Express part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

I had a pretty good experience with the management.
flexible schedule.
recognized good work.
Great prizes for product knowledge. (free jeans!)
decent discount.
little to no security.
upbeat music helped time go by.

Cons

way too much emphasis on the express card, you'd think it's the, only way they make money by the intensity with which they push it.
at the time management would get rewarded for our work to the point of unfairness. they would make sure we knew how meeting sales goals would get THEM cash prizes....and then wonder where the morale went.
the discount couldn't be put toward clearance or combined with coupons.
minimum wage pay with no commissions.
filthy employee bathrooms.
No commission, even though my job tested on my ability to sell...?!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

don't flaunt your rewards for our hard work especially when we aren't a part of it.
