    Pros

    Great team. Great company values. You learn a lot about sales, marketing, and great customer service. You get a good discount on items and during the holidays employees are treated very well with rewards!

    Cons

    Does not pay very well. Woman have to wear either sandals, boots, or heels. You destroy your shoes from standing for so long and minimum wage isn't really worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keeping on!

    Pros

    Good employee discount, nice store, upbeat music. It is not as large as a Department store so it makes it easier to walk around. It is a manageable size.

    Cons

    Little to no hours, minimum wage, repetitive tasks.

    Advice to Management

    Hire less employees, give HOURS. One shift a week is unacceptable. At least 10 hours a week, or else don't waste people's time.

    Cons

    -Managers sometimes set goals to be accomplished in an unrealistic tie frame (mainly when extra busy)
    -I can't think of anything else

    Pros

    Express is a great company to work for; they offer an amazing employee discount. There are often fun contest to win gift cards and free items

    Cons

    As a part time sales associate. You will not make a lot of money as they are vey careful not to give too many hours. If you are effective, you have the potential to earn more hours.

    Advice to Management

    i would advise management to fire fewer people and offer they great trainings and more hours for their hard work.
