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

    Pros

    A lot of hours
    Flexible schedule

    Cons

    They call you on days off, asking you to come in to work, very intrusive
    Expectations are outlandish and impossible to meet
    Pay is very low for the amount of work
    Management is on the shady side

    Advice to Management

    Allocate more payroll hours to each store, especially during closing hours. Sometimes the store closes with only 4 people, and takes hours to get the store in shape after all customers have left.


  2. "Full-time sales lead"

    Pros

    The company has great clothes and gives you an awesome discount.
    Great management team.
    Really education you about the fashion industry.
    Easy to move up to management.

    Cons

    The company doesn't care about their associate.
    High turn over rate.
    Pay is definitely NOT enough!!!
    Way to much pressure to make you're goals.
    Clothes is pretty expensive.
    Pressure to shop during extra discount.
    Not enought hours for associates, so management is obligated to work over 40 hours with no additional pay.
    Shipment time is unrealistic.
    Never having items in stock for customers.
    Store and customer relations guidelines aren't the same.
    Customer relations isn't open after 5:00pm eastern standard time wtf people is the west have issues too.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice if we could get paid more. I really love this company, but the pay isn't worth all the stress. I feel like I'm always going over and beyond for this company, and I'm not sure why. We lose associated all the time to company's that are willing to pay more. Oh and not having enought hours to get everything the company wants done. Your expectations are was to high. Especially when it comes to freight.
