    Pros

    Good employee discount, nice store, upbeat music. It is not as large as a Department store so it makes it easier to walk around. It is a manageable size.

    Cons

    Little to no hours, minimum wage, repetitive tasks.

    Advice to Management

    Hire less employees, give HOURS. One shift a week is unacceptable. At least 10 hours a week, or else don't waste people's time.

    Pros

    If you're into the clothes that might be a pro. Discount has been raised from 30 to 40%.

    Cons

    Sale based business model has management too concerned with the bottom line which makes them prone to neglecting employee concerns. Doesn't pay well at all, even for retail. Perpetually under staffed, closers often stayed 3-5 hours past closing time. Lack of communication between different managers, managers would often engage in passive aggressive power struggles. Employees can no longer take advantage of the Express NEXT rewards system.

    Advice to Management

    Train your associates properly and learn to communicate in an effective and respectful manner.

    Pros

    -Co-workers were nice and helpful (especially as a new associate) -Managers were usually upbeat and energetic as well as helpful -Good way to make extra money on the side. -As a college student they were very accommodating to my schedule and never put me on days or times other than what I said I could work.

    Cons

    -Managers sometimes set goals to be accomplished in an unrealistic tie frame (mainly when extra busy) -I can't think of anything else

    Pros

    40% discount, pretty good environment and cool associates.

    Cons

    They don't give enough hours and they want too much for very little pay. Unrealistic goals set.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring so many people so you can give more hours. 3 five hour shifts a week at minimum wage isn't enough.

    Pros

    Express is a great company to work for; they offer an amazing employee discount. There are often fun contest to win gift cards and free items

    Cons

    As a part time sales associate. You will not make a lot of money as they are vey careful not to give too many hours. If you are effective, you have the potential to earn more hours.

    Advice to Management

    i would advise management to fire fewer people and offer they great trainings and more hours for their hard work.
