    I have been working at Express full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I really do make a difference in people's lives. I work in a fast-paced enviroment, so there is never a dull moment. The associates are amazing. The previous SM was not good. The current SM is a world of a difference and when the right people are working, it makes everything smooth.

    Cons

    Little incentives. Pay is not close to what it should be for all the work that keeps the store going. Lack of pay for basic associates means a high turnover rate, but we do recruit the best. It is rare to leave when you're scheduled to leave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay the associates more than the minimum.

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

    Pros

    I enjoy my time at Express, and I enjoyed learning a few things about how to put together an outfit

    Cons

    The hours are in the most inconvenient times of the day. As a student, my total time commuting takes up a good portion of my day, and what I'm paid barely covers the transport cost to and fro. There is always a pressure to get NEXT, although it doesn't seem to correlate to anything besides "Employee of the Month" type status

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What is the incentive for getting NEXT as an employee?
