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

    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 :(

    I have been working at Express part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Coworkers are all close in age and the atmosphere is great. Manager always brings food for us and it is just a nice environment to be in. Really appreciate the management. I understand this was only with the Express I have worked at so far. I transferred to a different one and it was the complete opposite.

    Cons

    Money is minimum wage for a regular sales associate. When i moved up to Sales lead my salary was raise by roughly $2. I understand it is a retail job but the $2 pay raise does not reflect the amount of work that I put in. This is oinly aa real issue because they expect you to really engage with the customer and earn your sales but don't award associates with any commision which I feel would not be asking too much considering the amount of work I put in. I could also just be the outlier since I was surrounded by some people that would just do the bare minimum.

    I worked at Express

    Pros

    Good discounts on clothing, especially on certain weekends when we got extra discounts. Relatively flexible on what we wore to work

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations for shipment processing from the box out to the floor (110 units/hour is impossible unless you're sprinting and sweating), I wasn't properly trained and was expected to pick things up and know things on my own, belittled for asking questions, management was constantly gossiping about the Sales Associates. I never felt appreciated or included while working there, and despite being a hard worker and always trying my best, I felt disliked by the managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees as people, and be more understanding to the fact that we are only human

    Great clothes, discount isn't that bad

    No matter how hard you work, the company won't be loyal to you, won't give you a raise that you deserve.
