    I worked at Express part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    CSLs really care about the associates. clothes for many body types and for all adult ages.

    I worked at Express part-time

    Pros

    The managers were nice if they liked you. I was lucky that my managers liked me so moving up the ranks in the store was extremely doable.

    Cons

    The hours are not consistent, especially with on-call shifts and sudden call-ins. Sometimes, they will extend your shift but that usually only happens on busy holidays.

    Advice to Management

    I liked my managers at the stores I worked at. They took pride in their stores and made sure that customers felt welcome.

    I have been working at Express full-time

    Pros

    Great company culture- the best part of my job is the people I work with in the creative department. You get a fantastic discount with extra-discount days from time to time and sample sale is always the best time of the year.

    Cons

    The work place is very fast-paced and stressful at times because things are constantly changing. There's not a great work-life balance and I feel it's hard to grow.

    I have been working at Express part-time

    Pros

    Great staff depending on who you work with. Gives you merchandising experience. Great discount. You get 40% off anything not on clearance.

    Cons

    Sometimes you have to work with people who don't know anything about how to keep the store clean and you have to stay until 11:30 to get it done yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Selling isn't everything. Customer service and creating an amazing and comfortable shopping experience is just as important. Don't flirt with the customers and don't make bets with the customers. Look at availability before you make wrong schedules.

    I worked at Express part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This was a great part-time job. The work was not too demanding and it was nice to work with such nice people in the team.

    Cons

    The hours varied a lot from week to week and that made it hard to depend solely on this job for income.

    Pros

    Fast Pace, Trained in all aspects of customer service, great management set up and great communication between management and part - timers, management places all employees on a growth plan to ensure growth pottential.

    Cons

    Set schedules are hard to come by, very long closing hours even during non holiday time (be prepared to leave between 12:30 am -2 am )

    Advice to Management

    Better utilization of hours so that enough closers are available to work closing shifts.
