I worked at Express part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Best thing about working at Express part-time is that they can't schedule you outside of your availability, no matter how limited. Oh, except for Black Friday. There's not a chance you'll ever get it off. Even if you request to do so a year in advance, or it's your birthday. Makes no difference. I quit my job because I couldn't get that weekend off and there was something else more important taking place that weekend than minimum-wage my job.

Cons

Management can be a pain in the side, and believe me, they have A LOT to do with your overall satisfaction with the job because they are responsible for managing just about your every move.

Advice to Management

Give some things a break.

    Pros

    Quarterly discount that makes the clothes you buy 45% off.

    As a part-timer you only need to do the bare minimum, because that is exactly what your wages are.

    "Chat-ins" are all the same: "ask open-ended questions", "add-on to their purchases", "sign them up for credit card and/or rewards program".

    Cons

    3 minute updates on how the store needs more money over the walkie talkie

    Customers who: wreck perfectly stacked clothes, cover the dressing room floor entirely with clothes to only buy nothing, and tell you how another Express store validates expired coupons on clearance items so you will too or they will call Customer Service.

    Advice to Management

    Ideal employees only exist in ideal work environments so stop demanding the former when you never invest in the latter.
