    Pros

    Coworkers were easy to get along, everyone worked well as far as shifts and switching when necessary, decent discounts for retail, great incentives

    Cons

    Management team wasn't considerate of other workers time. Very hard to get time off no matter how pressing the issue Lack of pay upgrade

    Advice to Management

    If you want employees to stay with your company it is imperative that you make them comfortable and all employees are treated and paid fairly for the work being done

    I have been working at Express part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The 40% off discount is nice. The store I work at is full of great people that i enjoy hanging around. My managers are really great about working with my class schedule. The fashion is fun.

    Cons

    Low pay. $8 an hour. Sometimes it is really depressing to think about how little you're making when you leave exhausted after having to stay an extra hour after your closing shift was supposed to end (because some self-entitled turd customer unfolded all the graphic tees). There is a "speak up" program that I really hate, where if you report suspicions of a coworker stealing, and the resulting investigation ends in prosecution, then you get $500. I find it demeaning that they think I would turn someone in just for some money. It also creates weird suspicious vibes between coworkers.

    Advice to Management

    Incentives would be nice. Like a special additional coupon on one item once every so often or something. The employee discount is nice, but even so, we aren't really getting paid enough to afford the clothes. Get rid of the weird, low moral echelon "speak up" program.

    Pros

    You get to work with fun people excluding the Store Manager in most cases.

    Cons

    Awful pay for associates. Its so hard to build a team on minimum wage and such a high expectation. There is literally minimum training or none for associates and managers. The coupon policy sucks because customers get whatever they want. Things change so often that it feels like there is no policy for anything.

    Advice to Management

    Pay associates more so we can retain the good ones. Stand by one policy!

    Pros

    Good people to work with. Associate discount.

    Cons

    No hours. You don't have just one thing to do you do everything.

    Advice to Management

    Give more hours, hire less people!
