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

Pros

The discount was great, And the clientele was usually fun. I recieved 2 raises in a little more than a year. Also the location was beautiful and they provifef plenty of training.

Cons

The hours were my biggest complaint. However management was very accommodating to my full time job. But at the same time I only wanted to work 20 hours a week but wound up working between 25-40 hours in addition to the 40 hours I was already working.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Offer more incentive to those that sell the creidt card.

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

    Pros

    I love the discount and the merchandise...my wardrobe has never been better! I love being up to date on all the new styles and my store manager is great. I was hired as a seasonal sales associate and kept on, now my store manager is pushing the DM to bring me on as management.

    Cons

    It can be a bit stressful at times (not as much now) and there's a lot of repetition when it comes to having to memorize things. There's a lot of pressure. When I first started, I wanted to break down and cry nearly every day that I worked. The co-managers were pretty cruel and it was a real downer for my self-esteem. I suggest being careful applying/working here if you have emotional thin skin. Shifts for associates usually run 4-5 hours, or 7 if you're working a Black Friday shift or Floor set. Don't expect a break, ever, no matter how many hours you work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would suggest the management not look down on associates, at least not openly. A little more patience would be nice too, especially when you're not actually trained, you kind of have to pick up on things on your own.
