    I have been working at Express part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Employee discount, good if you have enjoyable fellow employees and your supervisors are good, extra discount days, nice selection of clothes, great retail experience, works with your schedule even if you only want to work like 5 hrs a week, perfect for students, occasional rare free clothing items

    Cons

    Low pay, expect you to work as if on commission, high focus on signing up people for credit cards and reward programs, constantly checking on people even if you know they do not need any help, if you want to wear jeans has to be theirs, slim selection on what shoes your able to wear to work, just a lot of work for min wage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase pay or maybe employee discount
