    Pros

    You're surrounded by people who are very professional. They still somehow maintain functioning like a big family. If you are good at being happy and welcoming and isn't afraid of communicating you'll do just fine! When hired your first purchase is 50% off and afterwards you get 30% off on all things excluding watches and clearance items. You aren't required to wear Express but the clothes you do wear have to look like it's from Express.

    Cons

    The pay is not the best. it's minimum wage :(

  9. Tedious but fun

    It has been a great eye opening experience, I can't say that I would work for another retail company.

    Pros

    I work with such knowledgeable people in a fun environment doing what I do well. Those above me know alot and are and have always been there to support me during my growth and promotions.

    Cons

    The only thing I would have to say is it is a demanding company if you get past the sales associate level. But at t he same token that's not necessarily a bad thing for me. For others it may be if you are unwilling to work hard. In order to play hard you must work hard. With all this hard work, I was blessed with the opportunity to grow and learn alot.

  11. I love this company
