    Pros

    The best group of people I have ever worked with, and I have worked in various work industries...You have to be a team player; it all about going green on each segment. Great leadership--everyone wants you to succeed. They keep you in the loop. Great training that will help you to make those sales...

    Cons

    Flexible schedule, which can be expected when you work in retail...Overall, it wasn't as bad as it seems, because they try to accommodate my schedule (if you have school, etc...)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great management, who care about their employees!!!

    I worked at Express full-time

    Pros

    Fun fast paced place to work. Organized company with great operations. Great pot and insurance etc. Great Fashion, Great Quality! Was proud to represent a quality product.

    Cons

    Hrs such as long nights and weekends, if you want to move up be willing to move and work extra hrs as an Store Manager and above. Hard to find work life balance. Left because salary to low for internal promotions. I worked my way up from an associate so didn't make as much money as some in the same position from outside the company.

    As far as growth you have to speak up for personal growth opportunities like going to store openings, corporate visits etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give better raises to loyal employees that stand by your brand. Equally develop your managers instead of sending the same people to store opening and other opportunities.
