    Met a lot of great people

    Overloaded with work for minimal pay. Promotions are done by favoritism rather than actual skill.

    Give your employees a reason to want to stay with the company. Appreciate hard work and keep it professional.

    Pros

    Express is a great place to start out in the retail world. They will hire almost anyone. They will teach you how to work and work really, really hard.

    Cons

    The hours can be brutal. If it is corporate visit you can be there until 7am. They will suggest you work off the clock, and the stress can be almost unbearable at times.

    Advice to Management

    To focus on providing a red shoe experience to your associates who make this place successful. To give incentives for those who work really hard.

    Pros

    It was a fun work environment with cute clothes and a great discount! Management was young and very rewarding of hard work. They gave employee appreciation awards which were a nice incentive to work hard. They were willing to work around school and exam schedules if you let them know in advance.

    Cons

    It was hard to get a lot of hours and they were not very accommodating when you called in sick or had a family or personal emergency.

    Advice to Management

    It would be helpful if you gave employees tips on how to grow within the company. The pay is really bad and it is nearly impossible to get a raise. But it's retail so that's to be expected.

    Pros

    Amazing discount! I thought it was a great place to start in retail. Kept us informed about the product. I had great management.

    Cons

    I had a very positive experience. I was a newbie and felt very taken care of.

    Advice to Management

    I don't remember any programs of working your way up within the company. I wish more of that information had been available.

    Pros

    -My manager was amazing!
    -The employees were easy to get along with.
    -The clothes are nice.
    -Management in general was great to work with.
    -Wasn't difficult work, you just are moving for the entire time.

    Cons

    -Said they hired from within, but witnessed them hire a district manager that has not worked at Express before.
    -There are sales expectations to be met, but there is no bonus to do so, otherwise you will be badgered every time you all don't make them.
    -The employee discount for clothing dwindled down to where customers are able to match it.
    -They expect you to treat every customer as if you made commission, in that you must wait on them hand and foot.

    Advice to Management

    Either better pay per hour or commission
