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

Pros

Nice clothes but you never work enough hours to be able to afford them

Cons

Barely got any hours, worked a max of 6 hours a week then the manager complained when workers werent fully knowledgeable and prepared when working as a cashier, training session was not sufficient, very relaxed and not professional, manager had favorites which accounted for newly hired workers not getting any hours and not getting an experience, then she would'nt schedule workers because they couldnt get any real practice, she would also purposely under staff causing chaos and lines so inexperienced workers look like they cant keep up, just poor management, she would also sit in the back on her cell phone having a good old time while everyone is running around in an understaffed workplace.

    It was a great learning experience but it was not rewarding enough for my level of performance and interest in the job.

    Pros

    They found ways to make work meetings fun, floor sets were more relaxed and informal, dress code was good, had the flexability to work in the section of the store that you were good at

    Cons

    Catty employees, minimum wage, exceeded at the job but didn't feel rewarding, high turnover rate

    I have been working at Express part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    For 5 years, I've worked with very friendly people. All the management at each location I worked were very professional and friendly. If you are competent and show up to work ready to work, they always want to help you and it's hard to get on their bad side unless you don't do your job or skip work.

    Once you work enough total hours, everyone is eligible for the retirement plan and company matching. Even part-time sales associates.

    Cons

    The pay is usually at minimum wage or barely above, but the store asks workers to have higher standards and customer service expertise than most minimum wage jobs would require. Even as a manager, I received barely above minimum wage, and was always working 40 hours a week, but never got full-time benefits or PTO.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay what employees are worth, or at least a livable wage. Especially full-time management employees.
