    Work with your schedule to accomodate. Team oriented.

    Not always enough hours to go around to all part-time employees.

    Honor the employees that work hard, and are dependable, not just the ones that open the most credit cards.

    I worked at Express

    Pros

    Management was rewarding to good employees and it was enjoyable helping others pick out clothing.

    Cons

    Management didn't do a great job of training- you were just kind of expected to watch others and pick it up. Not ideal for Christmas season.
